It was a rather simple repair. First turn off power to machine as you will be working near live electrical connections. Remove screw on bottom front pannel then remove screws from top front pannel and remove screws that hold top down in front. Note that machine does not need to be removed from laundry closet as long as you can access the front of the machine. Remove lint tube at bottom then unhook wires from door swithes noting which ones are to be connected to which connectors. (write them down with location). remove front drum support screws (4) and then disconnect drum drive belt but extending spring roller bracket and lifting belt off motor drive pulley. At this point lift drum out of cabnet to give full access to the back of machine. Using snap ring pliers remove lock ring from front of roller shaft and slide roller off. Don't lose the spring washer. Clean all parts and vacuum inside of dryer to remove all access lint that has accumilated that could cause a fire. Remember safety first. When all is clean, lubricate roller shaft with lightweight lithium grease and reinstall roller with spring washer and snap ring. Reassemble dryer in reverse order of disassembly. It was a 30-40 minute project including cleaning time.
