I followed the directions that came with the new Drum Glide kit. Unplugged the machine from the wall outlet. Raised the top of the machine which only required releasing the front top clips. Removed the two screws that hold the front cover on. Unplugged the harness connectors to the controls on the front cover. Pulled the front cover loose from the retaining clip and raised it to release the lower part of the front cover. I then removed both the Glide and the lower seal. Had to use Acetone to remove the old adhesive. Used the adhesive that came in the kit to put the new glide and lower basket seal on. I used small clamps to ensure a good fit as the adhesive cured.
Then I put the front cover on raising the drum in the front to allow it to fit into the front cover. The rest was the reverse of what I did to remove the cover. I feel this is an ease repair. The hardest part is cleaning the old adhesive off.
