Dryer was making a horrific screeching noise which was coming from the front of the drum. Ordered the drum bearing slides, felt seal and front bearing. Before the parts arrived we watched an 8 minute video on how to replace the either the bearing or the drum seal. Excellent information - we followed the gentleman's directions and the whole thing was complete in less than an hour - including completely cleaning the inside of the dryer ! Very satisfied with the parts and service - I was going to buy $500 replacement.
