Took the drum out, saw that the top part, drum guide was wore and three plastic guides were wore plus broken. Called Partselect to order part and they recommended the replacement of Lower basket seal. Which made sense once we looked at it.

The parts arrived with regular shipping in two days.

Had to remove the worn parts. Make sure the old glue is removed and the service is clean before installing new guide and seal. They include glue with the packet.

We put the new parts on and using finger pressure made sure the guide and seal fit firmly to the drum. We let it sit over night and put the drum back in the next day.

While we were at it the dryer received a thorough cleaning around the parts you cannot get to when the drum is installed.

The dryer now works fine.
