Checked YouTube and saw a video that described the removal of the drum, belt and rollers - step by step. Ordered the parts. Once they arrived, we realized we didn't need all that we purchased, but putting the dryer back together was easy and the dryer no longer squeals when on. YEAH FOR US!

Ordered new timer skirt. Watched video on replacing it. Removed timer dial skirt and knob. Used screwdriver to release tabs on knob. Made sure the metal insert on old skirt came off with the old skirt. Installed new timer dial skirt, pressed knob into place and made sure it latched. Installation complete in 30 seconds. Fit and works perfectly. Only problem I have had in 14 years other than the inside light burns out often. Thank you!
