You will have to take the back off and pop the top up. To pop the top, insert a stiff putty knife into the joint where thr top meets the front, about 2 inches in from the sides. Push inward to release the catches.

The tech I paid to replace the belt opened the case from the top and the back, and pulled the drum back away from the front, keeping the drum attached to the back panel. This exposed the motor and the broken belt, which had been cut by the motor drive wheel, probably because the drum was too heavy. Don't you just love renters?

Hi, You need to check and see if the belt has slipped off of one of the pulleys. Was the idler the wheels style or a glide style?
Make sure the grooves in the belt are facing the drum and they are in the grooves of the motor pulley.
Please let me know if this helps and if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: changing dryer belt
The drive belt goes around the drum near the rear. It does not use a special groove; it just runs on the surface of the drum. You will need to remove the drum to gain access to the broken belt, motor, and idler/tensioner pulley. It will make more sense when you remove the drum and view the motor pulley and belt tensioner. With a helper, install the new belt around the motor pulley and under the tensioner, then fit it around the drum little by little as you reinstall the drum. Make sure the drum is positioned properly on its rear support wheels, then manually support the front end and rotate the drum slowly by hand. It should rotate freely and the belt should start to track straight as it realigns itself on the drum. If it tracks well, reinstall the front panel, door, top, etc., and check operation.
