Ok this is an easy one:
Remove the 2 screws at the base of the front of the machine first.
Remove the front panel. The top needs to come up next.
Then remove the rear access panel and remove the tension on the belt. Get the drum out, clean the dryer, oil the wheels and rollers. Inspect the front glides for wear and re install the drum making sure the belt is not twisted. Captain? Yes Spock? Will I be able to play the piano again?

One note about replacing the belt, part # 312959

It goes around the drum with the flat side down, not the ribbed side as on other machines. That's a very old machine you have there.
