Basically followed the You tube videos on standard, stand alone dryers as mine is a stack-able unit. Allow a lot of room to work. Unplug electricity and or the gas, vent hose and water hoses. Start removing screws as per the video, remove Belt then lift up then out the dryer drum. (The drum drops in from above on the back of the unit)the rest is remove and replace as you go. *TIP... I use my phone to photograph tricky areas so I can review as needed. It was more scary then difficult. You can do it!

My dryer was making a horrible squeaking noise comparable to nails on a chalkboard! I looked to get a similar used replacement because I was in a bit of a pinch for $$$, after being frustrated and not finding anything I came here and found all the parts I needed for my repair for UNDER $40!!!! I followed the super easy how to video that was provided on this website. This is the second repair I have made to this dryer, I did the heating element about a year ago. I also used this site to purchase the part and used the how to video associated with that repair. I was very surprised that I received the part the next day when I paid for regular standard shipping! Overall this was a an awesome experience and I have saved so much money repairing my dryer on my own vice paying someone to do it!!!

i watched the video that is furnished at parts select, it was very useful in doing this repair. i would strongly recommend watching this as i did install the ground bearing wrong to start with,and restringing the drum belt is something you have to feel as your installing it back in place so the video is useful for that as well. my repair was on a front load dryer made by Frigidaire,
