First I had to wait about 3 days for the parts to arrive when they got here they were the wrong parts for my dryer had to return them and reorder the right part. The front bearing I needed was a universal bearing that fit a fridgedair dryer as well as the GE I had. When it arrived I set in on replacing the bearing first. The hardest thing about replacing it was removing the old glue under the felt strip. I then applied the new glue and felt bearing strip and held it in place for about a minute, when I thought it was ready to reinstall in the drum I did so. I then installed the drum belt which is a bit easyer. I put the dryer together and did not run it until the next day just to make sure the glue was dry and holding the bearing strip tightly. Then I ran the dryer with a full load it was a bit noisey until the new drum belt broke in. Hope you like my book LOL.
