I followed others instructions on this site to disassemble but felt confident since 2-3 years prior I had replaced the felt top/bottom guides around the drum and the drum belt. The video on this page is also helpful1) Pop the top with a putty knife2) Unscrew two screws that hold the front onto the dryer frame3) Lift front from two clips at bottom of dryer4) Release tension from belt (unscrew/remove rear access plate)4) Lift drum up and forward out of dryer5) Unscrew drum bearing 3x screws from inside of drum5) Remove the drum bearing holder6) Pre-thread the rear drum bearing!!! Very important. Thread by screwing a supplied screw slowly through the pre-drilled holes.7) Attach drum bearing8) Attach new rear holder/cup & ball bearing (ball bearing goes on outside of plastic cup)9) Use lots of supplied grease, espeiclly helpful that it acts as a temporary glue holding the ball bearing in place 10) Reverse steps to assembleI'm glad I bought the entire rear bearing kit as I found the bearing holder had completely worn through and partially melted the metal cup. The ball bearing was missing - gone!Also found that the power cord had partially melted, so I replaced that from the hardware store. Scary.
