The online descriptions were very helpful. I used a wooden kitchen fork to pry open the top of the dryer from the front, about 3 inches in from each side. Two metal springs hold the lid. The wire harness was on the right and two disconnects were easy to separate. Remember to disconnect power before you start. On the inside on the left and right sides are two screws which hold the front on. Remove these screws and the front panel will lean forward. Remember to support the drum as you pull the front off. Remove both top and bottom felt seals. I used a putty knife to aid in the removal of seals. Scrap the residue with the putty knife to remove. Run a bead of glue all around and let set for two minutes. Place top drum guide on first, and center on top. Put lower felt seal on next and tie a rope all around on top of felt, to hold in place while glue dries. Let dry for 30 minutes and remove the rope. Reassembly dryer. Test on low heat. It really is easy to do. Celebrate.
