It's a direct drive turntable. That means the platter is actually mounted directly to the motor spindle, and electronics control the speed of the motor -- no belt needed. Most likely the electronic speed regulator has failed or is out of adjustment. Take it to a repair shop and get an estimate on how much it will cost to fix it. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new one than it is to repair an old one.
Lift the rubber cover off- there should be an opening or two in the metal or plastic turntable platter. Rotate it slowly until you see the motor pulley sticking-up; use a nail file to gently pull the belt from the bottom of the turntable over the pulley. rotate slowly to verify and then put the rubber cover back on. Let me know how it goes. Thanks.
if the platter is removable by you and easily, might need just a little cleaning and lube at the center . the platter is the top rotating plate that you were pushing to get started.simply pulls out around a center key. check with local service shops how much they would charge for this kind of cleaning and lubing. $25.00 might be a good price to allow a decision, whether to buy a new.
I am not familiar with your particular model of turntable, but typically the belt is easily accessible under the platter (rotating metal disc). Remove the platter (it often just lifts off, but don't force anything) and then you will be free to reattach the belt. Good luck!
Unfortunately, it does sound like a drive issue. Just so you know, these units are direct drive, so there is no physical motor. It's just a bunch of various circuits which drive the unit, and if any one of them go bad, it will affect your turntable speed. You will need to have this looked at by a service technician to determine which circuit is faulty.
