Took off front panel of dryer, the belt and the drum. I used a putty knife to get old drum seal off as well as a wire brush to get old glue off of drum.

Make sure that when you put it back together the seal is over both inside and outside edge of drum; otherwise you will probably have to replace it again in a short time. (I let the glue dry for about a half hour before putting the dryer back together just to make sure it was dry.) Once you get the drum put back in, turn it by hand to make sure it is turning smoothly and the seal is on correctly all the way around. If it isn't turning smoothly, it might be because the belt may have come off of where it needs to be, which is what happened to me. Replace front panel of dryer.
