The repair was done by my spouse. We replaced the rear drum bearing. We installed with the instructions sent by parts select. They were very accurate. The total repair took about 1 and 1/2 hours that was only because we cleaned out the entire dryer also, by using an air compressor to clean and blow out all the lint built up. This improved drying time and the part stopped the noise. I don't recall exactly what tools were used besides screwdrivers. This was our first time to replace anything in our dryer of 12 years old. I feel that if you follow the instructions that anyone would be able to do this repair. We did the repair in our garage because you need the room to work on it.
