Unplugged dryer, pulled up on top panel to remove it. Removed a couple screws holding front panel to sides, and unplugged wiring harness. Removed front panel. Removed yellow plastic stop with one screw on top cross brace to allow removal of drum. Disengaged belt by cutting it since I was replacing it anyway. Lifted up on drum to disengage from rear bearing and carefully removed it. Removed old Drum Glide, cleaned surface and used included glue to attach new Glide. While glue was setting, vacuumed everything thouroghly and collected loose change. Replaced the two ignition coils by removing two screws and the retaining plate. Re-greased the rear bearing with high temp grease, and placed the new belt around drum. Make sure belt tensioning arm and spring are in place before replacing drum. Carefully insert the drum into rear bearing so as not to disturb the tensioning arm and spring. Lay on the floor and reach around each side of the motor to place the belt on the drive motor pulley and then carefully pull back tensioning arm to get the belt on that pulley. (This is the hardest part of the job.) Replaced the front and top covers in reverse order of above, plugged it in and it workes like new!
