Well, I've been in this dryer so many times to "quick fix" the problem, that getting the tools only took one trip to the shop. Always unplug the dryer!!! First remove the two phillips screws, located at the bottom of the front panel. I find a stubby phillips works best. Pull the front panel away from the bottom, there are two clips at the top that hold the whole thing on. Relocate the two wires for the door shut off on the upper left side, out of the way. Remove the 4 5/16" screws with a nut driver, two on the left and two on the right to remove the complete dryer drum retainer. Set aside, and do not disturb the drum. On the bottom left, remove the 1/4" screws holding the grey cover to the blower wheel housing. Set aside. Using snap ring pliers remove the snap ring on the shaft of the blower wheel. Then, using slip joint pliers, remove the clamp from the blower wheel, or if it is real bad shape, the blower wheel will just fall off. Next install the new wheel, new clamp, and reinstall the snap ring. When reinstalling the grey cover, lift up on the drum just a bit to get it all set. Reinstall the drum retainer, be sure to get the retainer lined up with the felt gasket on the blower wheel cover. Realign the two wires, reinstall the front panel
