Unplugged the electrical cord. Removed the 2 screws from the bottom of front cover. Moved cover to side of machine being careful with door switch wires. Removed lint screen and then the 4 screws holding the drum guide and pulled it off. Vacuumed all lint out of inside of dryer and vent area. Removed the guide pop rivets with an 1/8" drill bit and drill. Removed what was left of the old guides. Installed the new guide assemblies. Removed the felt material and used a razor knife to remove the old glue. Put new glue on the metal and folded the new felt and placed it around the cover with fold to the inside. I used a couple of clamps and small pieces of wood to hold the liner in until dry. About 15 minutes. The rear felt was still ok plus there only was enough material for the front so order 2 of the liners. Put the drum guide assembly back on being sure the liner was tucked to the face of the drum. Installed the 4 screws on the guide assembly and reinstalled the front cover being sure the wires were tucked in ok. Installed lint screen and plugged dryer cord back in. Turned on dryer and ran like new. This dryer is 30 years old.
