Open dryer door and remove two screws under top. Lift top up and towards you to remove from rear tabs. Then remove two screws holding the front door panel on, they are up high on either side of the drumdrum. Hold drum up and pull front panel top towards you. Now you can remove the old bearing assembly by unsnapping it from door panel. Install new unit by snapping it in place but be shure to put lower tabs of bearing in to lower unit first then snap into place. Put green slides on top and white slides on the sides of bearing unit and you are ready to reassemble the dryer, but be careful to hold up the drum when pushing the door panel back into place so as to not damage the bearing.
