Ok. this is a HARD job.
First you need to release the top from the cabinet.look where the top closes and you will see 2 release tabs that you must press in with a flat blade. lift open top and you will see 2 screws that hold the front on, remove them and move the front to the side( careful not to pull on the wires that go to the door switch,if you remove them, mark what terminal they go on)
slide the belt grove side down onto the drum. now go to the back and remove the little plate so you can see into the rear where the motor is.loop the belt around the motor pulley and theypull the idler arm & pulley away from the side and loop the blet over it( this will cause back tension and hold the belt in place) once you do this, move to the front and reassemble the unit. I hope this helps.
Good Luck!!

Noise in dryer Frigidaire model fde336res1 when running

Could be the drum bearings are worn. These are what the dryer drum turns on and when they wear out the drum and frame rub together (metal to metal). Also could be the belt idler which keps the belt tight around the drum. In either case the dryer would have to be internally accessed to determine failure.

Frigidaire dryer - tub will not tumble/turn....what to do? Can read all of the model numbers....the label has a crease it in.

If the machine sounds like it is running but the drum is not turning then you most likely have a broken or unseated belt. Just open up the top of the dryer and have a look at the belt on the rear of the drum usually. Most appliance parts stores should carry belts but you would need the model number to know which belt you need. See if you can find the manual for the machine. Otherwise you'll need to have a pro come and figure out your model number.

Take off front and put belt over drum. Reinstall front. Take small access panel off back to install belt on motor. Idler pulley pushes against belt to tension it. Thanks, please leave feedback or contact me again for more info if you need it.
