    Tuimbler- barrel not turning.
    I pried 2 front snaps to lift lid. Nutdriver removed 2 screws to lift off front. The switch easily popped out of bracket to free the front panel to set it aside. Tumbler lifted out exposing the cause of the broken belt was due to a damaged motor pulley. I used a screw driver to "lock" motor in order to back off the damaged pulley, then inspect and vacuum out inside of dryer. The new parts arrived in a surprisingly short time and included an easy to follow belt installation diagram. Once the new pulley was in place, I replaced tumbler with the belt around it. Then I was able to reach both hands under the barrel from both sides of blower, in order to "thread" the belt around the idler wheel and the new pulley. then replaced front panel and popped the door switch back in place and the top snapped back on. All done and a happy mother-in-law was able to dry her clothes once again.
