I have a washer-dryer combo unit, so the repair steps were slightly different than the repair videos I watched. (1) removed the screws at the top of the dryer and remove the top. (2) removed the front control panels and unscrewed the front of the dryer (where the door is mounted to). (3) from the back of the dryer, removed a small metal sheet to access the dryer's belt and dismounted the belt from the motor. Finally, lifted up the dryer drum and take it off the dryer. Once this done, I used the rear drum bearing kit and replaced the assembly that hold drum from the dryer back. This was a straight-forward and did not take much time. Unfortunately, the belt I purchased was a bit short, so I kept the old belt during the assembly.
