I watched the very helpful video provided by Parts Select. The repair went smoothly except for two problems. After reassembly, there was still a noise coming from the rotating drum, which I later discovered was the result of not making sure the felt gaskets around the front and back edges of the drum were not being pinched. Smoothing the felt solved the problem. The other issue was that after the repair the dryer was shutting off prematurely, before the clothes were completely dry. This was again my fault. When I first removed the bulkhead, a wire to the automatic moisture sensor came loose without my noticing it, hiding itself deep inside the cabinet. Since the model used on the video did not have such a sensor, disconnecting/reconnecting the wire was not mentioned. Upon reopening the cabinet, I noticed the loose wire and reconnected it -- problem solved. Thanks Parts Select, and thanks to the other user reports that provided useful tips.
