The first time I followed the video on here to determine whether it was the belt making the noise only to find out it was the right rear drum support roller and not the belt making the noise. I greased the shaft and put it back together which only temporarily fixed the problem. When I ed it, I misunderstood how to use the flat screw driver to fix the front drum felt sticking out and damaged the felt. I ordered the Drum Support roller kit and a new drum felt seal. After disassembling it again and installing the new right rear Drum support kit and installing the new front drum felt I started the reassembly. Like most things in life if you know how it's done it's easy but I wrestled with getting the new front Drum Felt to fold back and install inside the drum properly. This was the hard part for me. I needed one more hand to lift up drum, push in the front panel and get the rubber seal to set against the face of the blower assembly. A few choice words later, I finally figured out haw to get it all to go back together properly and properly use the flat bladed screw driver to push the felt seal back and seat. Dryer is back working like new.
