Determined that the 2 completely worn off front & rear drum seals were causing dryer to take too long to dry clothes.
Removed the front bottom panel first, then the middle panel and then the top panel. After removing the belt from the drum, it came out easily. Replaced both thermostats and fuse
just so they would be new in the unit.
Reglued the seals in place and waited til glue dried. Then reassembled everything back. Also lubricated the drum wheels. Everything worked and was quiet!
