Removed the bottom panel. Removed door to dryer and disconnected the door switch. Removed the top of the dryer. Now I had access to the drum basket of the dryer. Removed the belt and took drum out. The idler was accessible and easy to replace. I replaced the other drum support rollers. These were a bit difficult when it came to removing the clamp pins holding the rollers. Once you get one the other is easy. Reassembly is relatively easy and quick. Dryer no longer squeals, runs nice. I felt really good.
