Hi and thanks for using Just Answer. 1] Loop the belt around the drum. 2] slide the belt down the drum directly over the motor pulley 3] loop the belt around the motor pulley 4] pull the tensioner pulley hard to the end of its travel against its spring 5] wrap the belt around the tensioner pulley 6] release the tensioner so the spring pulls it against the belt 7] rotate the drum by hand to ensure the belt is aligned and does not pull offf the pulleys 8] reassemble case 9] dry clothes ... its easier than it looks seeing a broken belt in the bottom of the case
