four screws removed the front and angled bottom panels exposing the blower wheel and duct work. It was just another few screws to remove the control panel and main duct, exposing the blower housing. 4 more screws and a snap ring came off, then I removed the old blower wheel and replace it with the new one, fitted the seal, reassembled everything in the reverse order of dissassembly, and voila! A quite efficient clothes dryer again. Better than new.

Parts Select accepted my order on a Friday and I received my parts from a Pennsylvania distribution center on Saturday. Total out of pocket expense about $30 - significantly cheaper and quicker than had I called in a service person to perform the repair. Parts diagram and information provided online by Parts Select made it easy to identify the required parts and how things went together, making this repair almost as easy as looking in the phone book for a repair guy.
