Look inside at the front panel from the top down. On each side you will see a screw on each side holding the front panel in place. Remove the screws and pull the front panel foward. The front sits on two pins located on the bottom on the left and right. Lift the panel up and move to the side, be careful not to pull the wires off of the door switch. The belt will go over the drum , you will see a mark where the belt runs on the drum. You will not be able to see how the belt goes on but it makes a "S" shape around the motor and idler pulley.

Re: installing belt on a hotpoint eletric dyer
Envision the belt as putting a chain on a bicycle. Put the belt in place on the drum. There will probably be a groove to put it in and then start it on the pulley of the motor. Once you have it in place, simply turn the drum by hand a little bit and it should slip all the way onto the pulley. If there is a block or something in the way of you putting it on, you will have to loosen it first. Normally there is not.

Hello there Here is a detailed instruction for you ok
Remove the two screws that hold the control console
to the dryer; they are located on each end of the console. Turn the
control console forward onto its face. Disconnect the wiring harness
from the dryer to the console. Press in on the locking tab and pull the
connectors apart. Set the control panel out of your work area. To
remove the top, insert a putty knife between the front and top panels.
Locate the retaining clip and push in on it to release the corner of
the top panel. Lift up on the corner and release the opposite retaining
clip. Set the top panel out of the way. Two screws that attach the
front panel to the sides are located at the top corners. Remove the
screws and swing the top of the front panel out so that you can access
the door switch wiring harness. Disconnect the wiring harness from the
door switch and lift the front panel away from the dryer.
Replace the Belt
Locate the idler pulley by reaching behind the drum and motor assembly.
Using your hand, push the idler pulley to the left to release tension
on the belt.
Notice the routing of the belt around the motor and idler arm for
reference when attaching the new belt. Remove the belt from the motor
pulley. Lift up on the drum slightly and remove the belt from the drum.
the rib side pointed inward, lift the drum up and set the belt around
the drum. Route the belt through the motor pulley and idler pulley.
Pull the idler pulley to the right to reapply tension to the belt. ok?
You must pop off the top of the dryer then remove the front after the front is off you can remove drum . The belt goes around the drum and the motor pully and under the tentioner wheel after you get belt on replace front and top.
PLEASE MAKE SURE TO UNPLUG FROM POWER THIS IS 220volts AND CAN HURT YOU BAD
If you have a NVL333EY which you posted under, I'd rate the repair a 4 on a scale of 1 - 10 in difficulty. That Hotpoint model is actually manufactured by Frigidaire / Electrolux and sold through GE as a Hotpoint. (Hey, it's a global economy, right?)
Disconnect power to the dryer. Use a putty knife to push in the seem of the front panel with the dryer top to release the dryer top, allowing it to swing back. You may be able to use a phillips to remove the screws holding the front panel, but a #2 square drive works much better. Slip new
134503600 belt around drum from front. Put front panel back on. Remove 4 screws (again the #2 square drive works best) holding the back access panel at lower left back side to allow you to finish belt installation. Belt grooves touch the drum. The worst part is keeping the spring from falling off when you put the belt tensioning wheel on. After you have the belt installed, give the drum a turn by hand to make sure everything is OK before you close up the top and reconnect power.

all dryers open from the top so open the dryer door and look inside the top edge you will see two screws . remove the screws and lift the top panel . the front panel has two screws on the top one on the left and one on the right remove them both and lift up the front panel to remove it. the only way you can install the new belt is removeing the front panel because the belt goes around the drum from the front. once you remove the old belt out put the new one in . the belt goes around the drum from the front and then to the motor and idle roller . you can reach the idle roller from the front left corner or from the back of the dyer? i like to install them from the back cause its more easy. in the back of the dyer where the hose goes connected to the blower is the top with four screws remove the hose from the blower tube and remove the four screws. after you remove everything you should be able to see the dryer motor and idle rooler put the belt over the motor first then over the idle rooler .always make sure when you do this the dyer is unpluged and after your done plug it back and turn it on to make sure it runs correctly . if it runs ok put everything back together again.
