Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Get the drum out, clean out the dryer witha vacuum and use this belt routing pic for reference:

Hi and welcome to FixYa, I am Kelly.

Download this manual:

See page 19 for removal of the top (printed on the page 14'
See page 20 figure 19 for removal of the toe panel.

I note this is a 417.xxxxGGGG dryer (417) so if the manual above is incorrect for your dryer let me know.

Kenmore dryer drum will not turn.

This is commonly caused by a broken dryer belt. If you post back with your model number, I can explain to you how to verify and/or replace the belt.

Kenmore 70 series dryer

when you put your belt back on you must have had to take the front panel off am I correct? Did you forget to reconnect the door switch wires? Without them re-connected your dryer won't run.
