Removed Two Screws securing top of dryer to front of dryer. Removed 4 screws securing button panel to back of dryer. Removed top and set it to the side.
removed 2 screws securing front to sides and removed front of dryer, leaving electrical connectors connected. Removed old felt from lower drum support and removed old worn out upper drum bearing(only one slide was left). Snapped new drum bearing into front, installed new slides on drum bearing and new felt. Reinstalled all components in reverse of dismantle and fired her up. Works like a charm. My children hated the electrical dryer I was using in interim.
