After opening dryer found lint everywhere inside the machine. Vacumming that out took the longest - A good fire hazard in the making - clean it. Had to take several other parts out to thoroughly clean. New parts were a breeze to put in and the reassembly took longer becasue of the cleanup. I was glad to have done it myself as I was amazed how much lint was all over the inside. Dryer was a bit different than the one on the Video but The parts diagrams were readily available to be able to identify the location of the parts replaced. The back panel of my dryer was welded on so the removal of the screws only caused the drum support to come loose - a pain to get back into place. The only thing I wouls have done differently is I would have printed the parts manual with all the locations for my specific machine first and then done the job.
