This was really easy to me.
1. I removed the 2 screws holing the top on.
2. Carefully lifted and removed the top cover of the dryer.
3. Removed the two screws holding the front of the dryer.
4. Pulled the front of the dryer back being careful not to separate the wiring and set it up against the wall.
5. Removed the old bearing (which was totally destroyed).
6. Cleaned up all the old lint and build up off everything.
7. Attached the new bearing after installing the slides.
8. Resembled the part by reversing the above process.
9. NO more screeching, works perfectly.

This cost me a total of $50.00, (I used next day delivery)was completed in 3 days. If I had called my home assurance company it would have cost me $55.00 plus they would have come out, viewed the problem, orders the parts and 10 days later I would have had it fixed. What a waste of my time!
