I opened new parts and stcuk a felt pad on each glider and put one of my 10 lb. weights on it for about 1/2 hour to help it stay in place.

Then removed top panel and then the front..There are three phillips screws that hold the lint catcher in place inside the barrell. Then remove the 4 total bolts to remove Glide Brackets.

Mine was so worn down that the barrel had rubbed alomost all the way through a bracket.
Once felt pad was firmly set, i attached glider into bracket and installed them.

Put everything back in place and started up..and it was running and sounding like new...i paid 27.00 for parts and saved big time compared to what a service shop would have charged me.

The shipping was super fast and with my wife and i having 9 children in the house it was a life saver for us.
