You need the belt part # Y312959

The front comes off the dryer, then the drum cover. On this model, the belt lies against the tub with the flat side down, not the ribbed side as on other models.

A little old access door in the back makes it easy to feed the idler.
You have to get the front off to put the belt on. You need to inspect the wheels and slides because belts break for a reason.

About the icons: The beer is tip link, if a tech saves ya some money buy em a 6 pack. The small green square=personal message. The green dot is a link to my web page on appliance repair and other general BS I love to post. The letter sends me email.
I love fan letters! LOL
