After watching the on-line video associated with the idler pulley wheel and bearing, we took the dryer apart, removed the idler pulley wheel and bearing (both - although only one was bad), replaced it by just slipping it on and replacing the locking washer (that part took some time because we didn't have the proper tool). The drum support roller didn't even seem to be bad, but we replaced that also - just slipped the old one off and slipped the new one on. The belt was a little more difficult - to make sure it was all in the correct space (we made sure we marked the front of the drum when taking it out so we put it back the same way). We did not even have to disconnect any of the electrical connections - just layed the front panel to the side. I probably spend an equal amount of time vacuuming the accumulated lint inside the machine as the actual part replacement took. The dryer works beautifully - I think I have already done about 8 loads of laundry since the repair and it isn't making a sound.

Took it apart and drum rollers were almost completely gone!As a matter of fact rollers had separated from bearings.Very easy job,but took me longer than usual due to me not being properly prepared for job!I did not have a set of ring pliers,so I used needle nose and a screwdriver!Let me stress......make sure you have ring pliers and this job takes 30 minutes tops!!!!!!
