Ok thought it was a is60v.

To change the belt you need to remove the plug then the lid.

Then remove the control panel you will see the screws holding it on.

then remove bottom plyth there you will see screw along the bottom panel remove these.

Then open door and remove the 2 screws holding the door lock on then when the control panel is off you will see 3 screw on top holding front panel on remove these

then lift the front panel off.

Then you fit the new belt round the drum to the motor then you need to strech the new belt round the motor shaft. this is the hard part as the new belt will be very tight so you have to strech the belt round the motor. when on just rebuild the machine in reverse order but make sure the black tube at bottom is in probley. when rebuilt try machine it should be ok. if it starts scrapping on back panel what you need to do is kept twisting cabinet it will stop.

If you need anymore info just get back to me.
