I went online and viewed a you tube video on replacing the rear drum bearing on the brand of my dryer. After reviewing this, it was pretty easy since I new what I was getting into. It really helped! Most of the time was spent cleaning up the inside and outside of dryer first before the parts replacement. Other time was spent in putting back the dryer where it came out of. New dryer replacement would have been $750.00 plus labor costs modifying the area where it had to be placed which may have included relocating a shelf and re-routing the dryer ducts. Total cost was around $50.00 plus my time.
