I have done this once before so knew what to expect. I recommend replacing both the hinge bearing and the closing cam at the same time. Take everything out of the door. Remove one screw on the plastic top hinge cover. Remove the two screws holding the hinge to the top of the unit. Remove the door and place it so you have access to the bottom hinge. Pull out and replace the bearing and the cam. Have someone help align the bottom hinge as you replace the door. Replace the two top hinge screws. Replace the plastic cover and one screw. The filter is a no-brainer. Just be sure to run plenty of water through it before using.
