If you just want to get to it (to check the condition or what have you), You can insert a flat head screwdriver or putty knife where the lower front panel meets the upper front panel (just below the door). There are clips on either side, that when pushed on, will let you pull the lower front panel forward. Once you pull it forward you can lift it off the front clips and set it aside. If you move your head towards the right side and look towards the left you can see the belt. Now if you want to change the belt, you'll need to do the following steps. Unplug the washer. Move the two springs on either side that were behind the panel you just removed. (this can be done by pushing slightly down and unhooking them from the bottom) Near the top of the panel you just removed, there are 2 1/4" screws. These have to come out. About 4" from the right hand side, you will see a yellow/red wire if your unit has moisture sensors. Follow this up and unplug this wire. Now, up to the top. There are 2 plastic caps on either end of the console. Remove these by prying/ twisting the up. You now have uncovered 2 phillips screws that need to be removed. After they are out, pull the bottom of the console slightly forward to rotate it up out of the way. Underneath on the top of the dryer, there are 3 1/4" screws. Remove these and slide the top of the washer forward slightly to lift it off. Underneath, where the top was, \there is a 1/4" screw on each side towards the front. On the right hand side just inside the front panel the is a connection for your door switch. Depending on the model, you will need to write down where they go, or if it is a connector style, a small flat head screw driver can be inserted to work the clips out to unplug it. Now the whole front panel will come off. If your belt is being changed, take note of how it winds around the motor and the tension pulley. If the belt is still whole, Press on the tension pulley to get slack in the belt. It can now be lifted off the pulleys and slid towards the front. If your belt is broken, the belt is first inserted all the way around the drum. (look for the black mark on the drum which will show you where the belt has been traveling. As the belt lays down the left hand side of the drum, pull some slack through the pulley and around the motor shaft. Re-assemble in the reverse order and you should be set.
