If you need to replace the belt here's how: remove the front panel. you may need to remove a kick panel below the front panel. the top panel connects to the front panel by some plastic push in retainers (you can loosen them with a screwdriver) You need to prop the top panel up. the belt goes over the top of the drum down to a drive wheel that is located at the bottom of the dryer.

Dryer not tumbling


A broken belt is very common. If you hear the motor running, that's probably it. The dryer must be taken all apart to replace the belt. Hopefully instructions will come with the new belt. Routing the belt over the motor shaft and around the tensioner is always a challenge.
