I unplugged the dryer. Lifted the top, removed the two screws to the front and popped the shut off switch out of it's clip. Then removed the housing front. Getting the old hub off was not that hard but getting the new one on was a pain. I filed the motor shaft to get the rust and any burrs off. Then I had to fit the new wheel to the shaft. I used my pocket knife to open the hole in the wheel. After I got the clamp and clip on reassembly went pretty quick. I hope this is enough detail.
