Thanks to the Part Select YouTube videos, I was able to determine how to disassemble the dryer without having to spend much time trying to fixure that evolution out, and I was pretty much able to troubleshoot what the potential problems (and fixes) were via the various Part Select videos (drum slide(s) install, bearing install). The only part that took a bit of time to install was the drum rear bearing. It is an easy install, but it was helpful to have my son hold the bearing from the back (outside) of the drum while I tighten the screws from the inside of the drum. Again, watching the Part Select videos beforehand is a must!
