My dryer was making some awful noises. First thought was the belt. Eventually isolated it to the wheel on the idler lever. I had the driver taken apart and could cause the noise by turning the wheel by hand. I decided to replace the support rollers and drum glides at the same time. I highly recommend watching the installation video. I can't tell you how much it helped to see the repair done. Especially the magic incantation on how to open up the dryer to make the repair. For me the most difficult part was getting the new belt on during re-assembly. There is very little room to work underneath the drum to connect the belt to the idler pully and motor. I was successful in connecting those first and then working it around the drum second.
