I "Youtube'd" the model number and "make" and followed the simple instructions. This job was very easy. The symptoms pointed to either the drum rollers or the idler wheel so I replaced both while I was in there. I was able to do all with one "four-way" screwdriver, and didn't have to move the dryer out. I used snap ring pliers to remove the drum roller snap rings, but that could of been done with fine needle nosed pliers. While I had the drum out I used my shop vac to give the inside a good cleaning. I put it all back together and plugged it in and we couldn't believe how quiet it was.
