First I'd like to say I ordered the parts one day and got them the next. That kind of service is awesome!

Pulled off the front panel (Removed the 2 screws at bottom then lifted up and out from the bottom. Set it to the side. Then removed the 4 screws holding the front of tub housing in place and pulled the housing to the side. Pulled the tub forward a few inches to expose the drum roller wheels located toward the back of the tub. Didn't pull the drum very far forward because I didn't want the drive belt to come off the pulleys. Removed the retaining clip from the first wheel and then removed the 2 rub washers and the wheel. Repeated the same to the other wheel. Pushed the tub back in place. Reached in around the tub and repositioned the belt to the front of the grove in the drum in which the wheels run. Reassembled the front tub housing, making sure the blower flange fit evenly and well into the felt sleeve. Reinstalled the front panel. Smiled when I turned on the dryer and it was quite. I didn't install the front glide kit though I may in the future since they are fairly warn.
