Unplugged dryer. Safety first. Removed 2 screws in side the door opening so I could remove the top. Removed 2 screws to remove dryer front panel. Snapped off the old drum bearing and lower guide after disconnecting electric wires. Removed and replaced old felt on lower guide and snapped back in place. Snapped front drum bearing into place.Remember to reoplace the wires back onto their connector pins. Installed new slides by hooking end with small hole over pin on right side of front drum bearing and inserting other end into slot. Green slide on top 2 slots and white on each side slots. Hooked electric wires back up. Replaced frotn panes and screws. Replaced top and screws. Plugged dryer back in and test ran. All was quiet and running smoothly. Loade a large load of wet clothes. Dryer ran like new. Added up savings of over $500.00. Took wife out to eat and a movie with some of savings instead of buying new dryer. Wife now happy. All in family now happy. I'm her Hero. Thanks PartSelect.
