Tip #1: Create a simple system to track any screws, etc. you remove
3
Loosen the center nut
4
Put Tip #1 into practice as you begin to disassemble the dryer

Secure the drum to the front panel - tape did the trick for me!
6
Tip #2: Before disconnecting any wiring, take a pic of existing set up & add tags for good measure
7
Disconnect the back panel wiring - i.e. Pull back the white header blocks from their terminal pins
8
Finish removing the centering nut & washer along with the 8-9 outer edge screws

Remove the 3 screws at the lower part of inner rear panel but don’t fully remove it yet!

Unclip and remove the “external rear fan housing suction side” ... aka that ^
14
Unscrew the nut on the external rear fan wheel, and remove wheel

Here we go!! Feed the belt over the drum RIBBED SIDE DOWN agaist the drum

Feed belt around the motor shaft, feel for the rough section/indent, and then up around the pulley

Tip #3 - Consider taking a break before reassembly. It gets a tad nuanced & patience is key
19
Trace & reverse your steps! Nuance #1 Re-clamp the hose
