After unplugging from the wall, I opened the cabinet using some of the online video instructions I found, removing the door activation switch in the process. I removed the drum and cleaned the interior of the dryer thoroughly of lint and dirt, including the interior of the door where the lint trap is. I removed the old drum rollers and put on the new ones using directions in the bag (I had to reuse the old plastic washer on the right side because there was no new plastic washer with the roller kit.) I removed the old felt and cleaned up the old glue with goo gone (a nasty smelly process). I applied the new glue and new felt strip, let it dry a couple of hours, and then folded it back to accept the drum rim. I wrapped the drum belt around the drum, ribbed side down, and lifted the drum back into place around the felt and over the drum rollers. Lying on my belly, I then reached in and guided the belt around the tension roller and the motor shaft end. I replaced the door, making sure to get the door switch positioned correctly so that the button is pressed when the door shuts. I also took the opportunity to thorough clean all lent from the vent hose. The whole thing now works great.
