Reading these hints really helped me to find the right parts and do the replacement. I pulled the dryer out to allow room for the top to flip up and unplugged the power cord. I used the putty knife at the front to pop back the latches under the lid and used the chisel to prop the first latch while I poped the second latch. After raising the lid, I used the chisel to pry off the connectors from the door switch. I used a flashlight and Phillips screwdriver to remove the 2 screws inside the front panel. The remaining latches popped free when I pulled the panel straight back; I lifted the panel to remove it from the lower tabs. I forgot to notice the orientation of the seals before removing (doh). I used the chisel to scrape most of the old seals off and an acetone cleaner to disolve the glue. This took about 30 minutes, and the solvent was cleaned and dried off before I glued the new seals on. I used clothes pins at each end of the seals to keep them from slipping off while the glue dried. When I replaced the front panel, the exhaust seal wanted to push up, so I leaned the panel out when inserting into the lower tabs. I replaced the Phillips screws and plugged in the door switch and power cord.
