DISCONNECT THE DRYER FROM THE ELECTRICAL OUTLET. Using a Philips head screwdriver: Remove the (2) screws holding the door hinges to the dryer. Remove the (2) screws from the opposite side of the door. Pull the top of the front panel of the dryer towards you. Simply lift the panel up off of the guides located at the bottom of the dryer. Rotate the tumbler so that the baffle to be replaced is at about 5:00 (bottom right) of the unit. Using a socket wrench, you should be able to easily insert the screws from beneath the tumbler into baffle. Tighten the screws, but don't over tighten. The best things you can do for your dryer is to clean out any dust or lint that is visible while the dryer is open. Reassemble the dryer. Place the front panel into the bottom guides and snap the top of the panel back into place. Reattach the door and the screws opposite the door. You should be good to go. (REMEMBER: DO NOT WORK ON DRYER UNTIL IT HAS BEEN DISCONNECTED FROM THE ELCTRICAL OUTLET)
