Question about Dryers
Not totally clear on the particular model, but generally the belt is the same on most dryers.
Definitely do not mess with that thing in the middle there, that is the pivot point for the drum, and the place where the delicate heating elements usually are.
The belt will go all the way around the drum (tumbler); around the motor pully there you see in the opening there, and then arround another pully that is spring loaded to keep the tention on the belt.
It will probably take a tool to pry the spring loaded pully back so you can get the belt on.
Usually too, the machine pops apart with some force if you pry between the seams on the front, either the top pops up, or the front pops forward, then screws inside lead to the rest of the way.
Over all, the front casing will have to move forward so you can get the belt arround the drum, then move back to keep everything from falling in every direction. Once the belt is around the drum, it's just a matter of weaving it around the other two pullies.
It is not an easy task.
