It was fairly easy, the comments and pics on this site were quite heplful. I just took out the screws on the lint trap and popped the top by pushing in on the clips with a putty knife. zlift the top and swing it back. I cut the old belt with a utility knife since i was replacing it and lifted out the drum. the drum wheels just pop off and on so they are really easy to replace. next I took off the old rear seal with a putty knife and put the new one on. This is a messy affair if you are not careful, I ended up with adhesive all over my hands. Next loop the new belt over the drum and replace it aligning it. You kneed someone to help you hold the drum level while you replace the belt wheel and front. Run the drum around with a putty knife under the new seal to make sure it is not tucked under anywhere. Put it all back together and you are done.
