Here is the answer I received from last qestion... My only problem is that I dont see any \'\'star\'\' screws on the back of the machine to release the top of the dryer lid. Do yo umean screws on the back of the part the has the timer and on/off switch/timer etc? Please advise. Thanks again......
Most of the time these models have screws in the back of the machine on the top lid. You\'ll need to get over behind the dryer to access this panel. You\'ll need a \'\'star\'\' type screwdriver (most come in a set). Remove the top lid to expose the drum. The belt will run around the drum and down around the safety cut out switch. This switch is most likely a teflon or plastic wheel that the belt loops around. After installing the belt, replace all of the screws and you\'re good to go

simple remove the two phillips head screws at the bottom of the front panel lift up from the bottom and remove the front panel don't forget to unplug the two wires that go to the door switch and set the front panel aside remove the 4 5/16 inch screws that hold the bulk head on remove the front bulk head and set it aside take out your old belt ,put your new belt around the tube and run it around your spring loaded tension roller and around the motor pulley reassemble the dryer and test thats it
in some models you do it from the front the drum sits on 2 bogie wheels and the belt sits behind ,lift drum off bogie wheels and thread belt around pulley it should be on a spring tensioner and it allows you to swing pulley up or down try to thread belt around drum and replace drum back on bogie wheels.... in some dryers you may need to thread belt on drum and then onto pulley good luck
Most of the time these models have screws in the back of the machine on the top lid. You'll need to get over behind the dryer to access this panel. You'll need a "star" type screwdriver (most come in a set). Remove the top lid to expose the drum. The belt will run around the drum and down around the safety cut out switch. This switch is most likely a teflon or plastic wheel that the belt loops around. After installing the belt, replace all of the screws and you're good to go!
If the blower is working, then it's most likely the belt, a belt pulley or a tensioner spring. Open the dryer, it will power off, and then spin the drum by hand. If it moves with little resistance, it's your belt.
If you have the belt already then open the dryer door and there should be a couple screws in the opening where the door normally closes at the top. Remove those and then the door should be able to completely come off then you will have access to the belt area.
The squeak may be coming from the drum rollers, check them to see if they need lubrication.
I recommend that you use a good grade of machine oil to lube them such as 3 in One oil. Lube them at the shaft of the roller. Also check the rollers to see if they have flat spots on them, if they do then they will need to be replaced.
Recheck your location of the idler arm bracket with pulley to see that you have it in the right location and that the spring is also in the right location. Look for wear spots on the frame and idler arm and match them up.
I hope this helps
Unplug first with a straight blade screwdriver, pry up on the top of the dryer where the front wall of the dryer and the top meet. there are 2 screws 1 on each side inside the dryer where the sides and front meet, remove them and unhook the wires from the door switch. the whole front will now pull out and up, now open the door remove the 2 screws at the bottom of the door opening and the whole lint tray will pull out. sounds like a lot but only takes about 5 minutes.

Unfortunely, another point to consider!! How old is the appliance?
If the appliance is 10 years old or more you it may not be advisable to put good money into bad! New appliances are so much more efficient today that they can save you a lot of money in energy!!!! Water,Electric and detergent! And put money back in your pocket! The new appliance will pay for itself in only a few years!
