Tips for a great answer:
Disconnect the power for your dryer before beginning any work. It can be disconnected from the wall outlet.
Open the top of your dryer cabinet and tilt it backward.
Use a Phillips head screwdriver remove the top two screws. Put the screws in a safe place.
Tilt the front forward and roll the belt around the drum.
Remove the old belt by lifting the drum slightly in order to give way to the front supports. You may have to open the dryer door to help the belt fall to the bottom of the basket.
Position the new belt by aligning it in the correct position before beginning to thread it through the motor pulley and idler. It will take someone with strong fingers and skinny arms to be able to get past the drum in the front. The dryer belt in a General Electric dryer has to be threaded looking in from the back.
Reassemble your dryer by replacing the screws in the top of your dryer.
Close the top and slide the dryer back against the wall.
Reconnect the power to your dryer by plugging the cord back into the wall outlet.
