Removed the front, door and all. Replaced both upper and lower seals and allowed glue to dry for 24 hours. Removed 3 screws attaching drum to pivot in rear. While drum was out, relubricated pivot seat and ball.
Installed new drum which has been re-designed, Has strip around entire lip now. seals are different, so both have to be replaced with ones in kit, Supplied tube of glue is not enough to do the job, so used Gator Glue. Had trouble installing the 3 screws that attach it to the pivot. Finally re-assembled entire front panel and replaced the door. Started the dryer and it worked as new.
