Hi, the belt on my early nineties dryer broke. I ordered the part, but I have no idea what I'm doing. Help please? Montgomery Wards "Signature 2000" electric dryer. Model # FFT-7308-80D. Let me know if you need more info.

Thanks, I looked and there does seem to be some troubleshooting information that could be helpful in the future. However I was looking more for step-by-step directions to replace the belt.

If a Westinghouse dryer, you have an access panel in the back and a flat, no grooved belt. Rout new belt around drum at the wear spot, remove back panel and move idler pulley away from motor and wrap the belt around the idler pulley and the motor pulley. Belt will form an S shape. Only ONE way belt will go on and provide proper tension.
