Diagnose the problem. Is it the motor ? Is it the belt ? Order the correct repair kit, use name brand parts to ensure reliability. READ THE SUPPLIED DIRECTIONS. You can use a small wood shim or wedge at the top front corners to open the top . Use a 5/16" socket to remove the 2 screws at the top outside corners. Lift the front panel straight up, supporting the drum as you lift it off. Remove the drum, taking it straight out the front. Install the new drum rollers, install the idler, and then the belt around the drum. Install the drum on the rear rollers, make sure the seal is not folded under. Push the drum back against the seal flange, support the front of the drum with your right (or left ) hand, and sit the front panel on the lower pins, and gently push the front panel to the sidewalls. Feed the belt through the idler and around the motor pulley. This job is easily performed in about 20 minutes. Clean the interior while replacing the belt/idler and drum rollers. With the top lifted, after assembly, test run the dryer to make sure there are no "funny noises" after the repair. Watch especially for the white rub strips on the front edge of the drum. They tend to fold over when attaching the front panel. Job done !
