I looked at two or three repair stories on your site and followed the advice given there.
Three major things helped:
First, access to the innards by lifting the top AFTER RELEASING THE CLIPS AT THE FRONT USING A PUTTY KNIFE or similar - very helpful.
Second, instructions on removing the front panel and pulling out the drum were helpful
Third, a caution about checking and re-seating the rear drum seal using a putty knife or similar - I wouldn't have noticed that the seal was curled over in a couple of places without that warning - I'm sure it frequently gets bent over when replacing the drum.
PartSelect was very helpful and very quick in getting me the parts needed. I didn't realize I needed the idler pulley until after I received the belt I had ordered, but the pulley came so fast it really didn't matter - gave me time to clean out bags of lint - the worst part of the job.
Dryers are very simple, but hardy and enduring machines - enjoyed making a 30+(?) year old machine run like new.
