Disconnected dryer, took off front, took off screen housing, took belt off pulley and lifted out tub. Removed snap rings from roller shaft and removed rollers. Then removed roller shafts. Reversed procedure and added new shafts, rollers, washers, nuts and snap rings. Put tub in and put belt on pulley. Replaced auto dry sensor before replacing lint screen housing and connected wiring. Put front on and connented dryer. Be very careful when working with roller shafts. My wrench slipped and I ended up with 8 stitches in my right hand. The sheetmetal is sharp!
