To change the belt you have to take the top, facia and front panel off of the machine.
Slide the belt over the drum and replace the front panel.
Take the right side panel off.

It's a stretch belt and there's a special tool to fit the belt.
As you don't have the tool you'll need to improvise.

A short length of 15mm copper pipe should fit through the belt and over the end of the motor.
Lever it down (it's really hard) and slide the belt onto the motor shaft.

Refit the panels and it's done.

Copy and paste the following into a new browser window, it's a video showing how to change the belt.
