Catriver was right on the mark. Took a little bit of doing but I was able to fix the problem myself within 30 mins, and saved some money. Many thanks. I'd like to expand Catriver's solution a bit.
I found a layer of lint on the inside bottom of my dryer. With the face off of the dryer, it proved to be a good time to vacuum the lint out and reduce the potential of fire.

You have to remove the front panel first to access the clip that holds the front of the top down. Instructions:
crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket
a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)
b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires
c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.
d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)
e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)
f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside

Be sure to unplug the machine from the mains,
1.-Remove the top cover of the machine, very straight forward.
2.-Unclip the universal coupling from the main timer to the back of the knob.
3.- The whole knob assembly is held in place by a backing plate.
4.- There are 2 clips at the top of this backing plate raise them and the backing plate and knob can be pulled out.
5.- there is a plastic clips but be careful not to break it.

The knob breaks when it has been turned in the wrong direction several times. It's a safety device so as not to damage the main timer.

Tips for a great answer:
Remove the power cord from the wall outlet.
Open the dryer door. Remove the screws located along the inside of the doorway with the Phillips screwdriver.
3Pull the top part of the front panel away from the MDE5500AY dryer to disconnect it. Lift the front panel up to disconnect it from the metal clips on the dryer cabinet.
Unplug the wire connector leading to the door switch.
Unscrew and remove the four screws connecting the front panel to the rest of the cabinet. Lift the front panel up and away from the dryer to remove it.
Pull the idler pulley toward the left to relieve tension in the belt. Slide the belt off of the idler pulley and the Neptune dryer drum.
Route the new dryer belt around the drum and along the pulley system. Release the idler pulley to restore proper tension in the belt. Rotate the drum to ensure the belt is positioned properly.
Replace the front panel onto the dryer cabinet. Replace the four screws that connect the front panel to the cabinet of the MDE500AY dryer.
Plug the wire connector into the door switch assembly. Lower the front panel down into its original position.
Replace the screws along the inside of the doorway.
