The drive belt is item 5 this link:
The top must be opened and the front panel removed to install the belt.
Here is a link to step by step "how to" instructions.
Make sure to inspect the rear drum rollers wile you have the dryer open. Item 7 this link:
Flat drum rollers or hard to turn rollers will cause the new belt to fail prematurely.
