1. Remove Door 2. Remove two screws holding top of dryer on then slide top out. 3. Remove two screws holding front of dryer on. They're towards the top on the inside Then remove front. 4. Drum bearing just snaps out, so just pull or pry it out. And install new one. Just snaps in. 5. Install Drum slides. Make sure you order all four !! . 6. since you have it all apart you should vaccuum any excess debris (lint) out. 7. Put it back together. The top slides in and down , mine needed a "little persuading" back in. Make sure the gasket around the lint tube is still there or lined up properly (mine fell off) . I changed the felt strip also, if you do it make sure you pay attention to how it came off !!
You have to stretch it a little.
