Followed general instructions from your you-tube video. It was much easier than expected. We didn't know if it was belt or rollers, turned out to be roller, but since we bought both we replaced both.

right side drum roller rubber came off,this caused drum to drop and belt tensioner to release.

Actually, I watched as my 44 year old son performed the task. I don't get around as much as I use to. After watching the movies you sent I am very confident I could have done the work very easily. And, my son had no difficulty during the process. All went very well and the machine is running and is even quieter than it was earlier. I really appreciate the movies although I did not do the work. They were very clear and concise.

We found great video instructions via youtube.com to give us an idea to what might be the problem even before we opened the dryer. Then we opened the dryer top and front door and then removed the belt and drum. We then saw that one of the drum wheels was worn and the rubber part of the wheel was warped off. Once we saw what part we needed we ordered them through PartSelect.com since their wonderful instructions helped us out. Once we received the part we easily removed the old drum wheels and installed the new ones...super easy! Then we had to put the drum back in with the belt. The only "difficult" part was looping the belt around the motor because there was a lot of tension. Once that was set we just put the door back on and then the top! I guess the only snags we had during the process was where exactly to remove screws or pry open certain places b/c every dryer is a little different. I just advice people to really look at their dryer and think about how it is held together instead of just unscrewing everything. We are so glad we found the partselect.com instructions via YouTube.com. We were ready to buy a new dryer but fixing the dryer ended up only costing us $30! Our dryer is so quiet now, just like it is brand new.

Dryer became really noisy then the drum stopped spinning altogether.

First I removed the lint screen from the top of the machine and then the 2 Phillip head screws that where located under the lint screen door. Next I used a Flathead screwdriver to lift the top of the dryer from the bottom and propped it up against the wall in back of my dryer, next i removed the two screws from the inside front corners of the dryer with a ratchet and the appropriate size socket. I then removed the bottom front panel of the dryer with my Flathead by prying it off at the clips once removed I had access to two screws near the bottom, i loosened them with my ratchet and socket, I pulled out the top of the front panel with the dryer door open as I supported the drum with my free hand. once I removed the front panel I then removed the drum and set it aside. I took this opportunity to vacuum out all the dust from the bottom of the machine and the burner. I then removed the screw from the bottom of the first drum support wheel then i pried the clip off the drum support wheel axle Pulled off a second clip that held the wheel in place then i removed the broken wheel. I removed the back clip which was already cracking i put on the new clip, the new wheel and then the second clip, long story short I replaced the other drum support wheel which was still good but since i had everything apart i went on and replaced it too. I then put the drum belt on the drum, and I positioned the drum in place and put the front panel back on i put the top screws back in then i routed the belt around the tensioner and put it back in place. I rolled the drum all away around while pulling the drum gasket out and placing it in its proper position before i tightened the rest of the screws i plugged the machine in and checked to see if it was working as it should it was so i unplugged the machine and tigthend everything after i put the machine back together i dried a load and while running i went into our bedroom and asked my wife "do you hear that"? She said "no" and asked me what was she supposed to hear. We purchased the dryer used about seven years ago and it never ran as quiet as it does now. Its so quiet you can actually hear a click and then the sound of the burner kicking in.

By following the repair video available, I took off the top and front panel of my dryer, removed the drum, removed the old drum support rollers, vacuumed out the inside of the dryer (so much lint!), replaced the drum support rollers, and put the dryer back together. Dryer runs like brand new and is very quiet. Repair was extremely easy to do. Got the replacement parts in about 2 business days. PartSelect repair videos make the repair easy too! Lots of satisfaction for a girl to repair her own dryer!
