Loosen the front of the chassis with two screws in at the top after removing the tip of the chassis. The plastic top bearing around the dryer drum, drum slides affixed to that bearing had worn out. I ordered the parts along with a bearing kit for the center rear of the drum. All were easily replaced once the parts arrived (the next day from ordering!). I also replaced the felt around the front of the drum which was worn. Finally, I 'greased' the idler pulley close to the motor and reassembled all. It works like a champ!
