I found the repair videos on YouTube for my exact model of dryer and they made the repairs look easy, so I decided to do the troubleshooting and repairs myself. I figured it had to be the glides and/or the belt, and my husband told me he found the felt seal in pieces in the lint trap, so I ordered that part too. He told me he was afraid I would mess up the dryer, but I explained it was already messed up and convinced him to let me try. I followed the steps on the video and it was easy. The glides were warn down to nothing but the belt was fine, so I just replaced the glides and front felt drum seal. I needed a little "man power" to lift the drum to get the front back on, but other than that, a 5'1" middle aged woman did all the repairs herself! Thanks for the videos and the link to your website. You made it a great experience!
