Once I realized the drum was to be removed, the actual repair was not difficult. Because of the location of the pulley, it's best to tilt the dryer. Snap ring pliers are required to remove the retaining ring on pulley. I pulled the damaged pulley from the bearing. A small gear puller was needed to removed the frozen bearing. Lightly oil the new bearing. Installing the drum is a challenge because of the loose belt. I used paint tape to hold the belt on the drum. Download the service manual for good exploded parts views.
