you must remove the large front panel. if you can manage that the rest will become clear to you. dont forget to unscrew the door lock before befor removing the front panel. you will find three screws at the bottom of the front panel under the kick panel, remove them and the front panel will come off.

To replace the drive belt on a Whirlpool Duet washer, follow these steps:
1. Unplug the washer and remove the rear panel.
2. Place the drive belt on the drive motor pulley with the ribbed side on the drive motor pulley. Leave a one-groove gap between the belt and the end of the pulley.
3. Take both hands and pull straight up on the belt and place on the drum pulley beginning on the left hand side.
4. Hold the belt firmly in place and slowly turn the pulley to the right while holding the belt in place. The belt will eventually align and hold in place on the drum pulley.
NOTE: This may require some effort to get the belt in place.
If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
