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.
