9. I replaced the front of the machine, making sure that the front seal around the opening was in its proper place, and replace the screws with the use of a nutdriver.
10. I reconnected the wires to the door switch.
11. I rotated the drum by hand to make sure it runs freely and seals were operating properly.
12. Then I replaced the top of the dryer.
The job took about an hour to do, and was fairly easy from a diy person. The hardest part was looking for a place to buy the parts for replacement for such and old machine. I want to thank you for being out there.
