1.) Unplug Dryer
2.) pop dryer lid by depressing 2 front clips with flat head screw dryer
3.) on back of dryer remove access cover and release belt tension
4.) remove front panel screws and then pop off front panel
5.) remove old gasket. Used XACTO knife, razor blades and acetone. Go slow and be careful.
6.) apply new high temp glue, let set up for a minute
7.) position the new felt gasket and clamp into place. I used C-Clamps and squeeze clamps.
8.) I let sit overnight.
9.) re-assemble and good to go.

NOTE: In retrospect I should have replaced both seals at the same time. The bottom seal is pretty worn but is still working out for now.
