Followed the video that was sent via email with order confirmation, instructions were right on the mark, repair went fine. Removed top control panel cover first, then top dryer cover afterwards by removing screws locater inside of dryer door. Next, I removed the two retaining screws for the front panel, then removed the front drum bearing. This is where the video helped the most because the parts diagram doesn't differ on white and green dryer guide locations, only the video shows where there are to be installed. Green neopreme guides on top an the white guides on either side on the next lower position. Front cloth gasket was installed last, then I re-installed front dryer panel and all other panels as well. Dryer now runs as quiet as it did when it was brand new. I will have to re-order the start button switch, I was hesitant in ordering until I knew dryer would run properly by replacing front bearing and gren/white guides. Have already recommended PartSelect to several other people I know and hope they do the same.
