I removed the two screws holding the front cover and set the cover aside, then the two screws at the top of the dryer and unplugged and tagged wires going to the front panel and door assembly and set the front door and panel aside. Next I removed the 4 screws inside the tub attaching the lint filter and exhaust duct, and then the screws holding the blower cover. Then I removed the snap ring holding the blower to the motor shaft and pulled the blower off, slid the new blower on, and reinstalled the snap ring. While the unit was apart, since the lint filter felt gasket was out, I cleaned the gasket groove and cemented the gasket in place with Gorilla Glue. Finally, I reassembled all parts.
