My order confirmation email had a "how to" video for installing the parts I ordered. I just watched the video, and the installation was ridiculously easy! We've put up with the obnoxious screeching noise for probably about two years, and with about $40 in parts and less than an hour of work time, we have practically a new dryer!!
