Removed top - 2 screws. 2 more and the front comes off. I left the wires connected, and leaned the front against the wall. I then popped the drum bearing, with the slides off of the front, and pulled the felt from the lower half. I took some extra time cleaning lint with a shop vac. I then assembled the new parts back onto the front, and pulled the felt into position - it was a little fussy getting it right. The front panel and the top go back, and it`s done. I am glad I ordered the drum bearing, as the felt was worn much more than I would have guessed. This job could probably be done in 15 minutes next time, not including lint clean-up.
