It's not just a little...it would fall out if the sides of the dryer didn't stop it.  So I should try to just put the front back on and see what happens?  Thanks so much for all your help, guys!

Yup :)  I made sure.  At first I thought the belt was stretched from maybe too large of loads, but I saw it doesn't stretch, it will just rip if it's broken.

Here you go.  I looped it, went under the white wheel and around the motor part.  Is it correct?

you are good there, so just tilt the drum back on the drum rollers place the front cover on and get it lined up. Once the front is on, you can test it by grabbing one of the baffles inside the drum and give it a spin. There is going to be some resistance because you are spinning the drum, drum rollers, belt and motor.

Okay.  I'm gonna try it!  Let you know in a bit.  Thank you!
Actually...maybe you could tell me what my problem is.
My dryer just died on me.  It makes a clicking sound when I turn the timer knob...kinda feels like a quick, low hum.
I was checking the belt, but could it be the motor or some sensor?

Part number--is it on the belt?  The washer is a Roper Dryer Model RED4440VQ1
