Follow instructions all most to the letter. In video it was stated to get an assistant to hold static / housing retainer in place to start screws. I put it in place and, used Duck Tape to hold it there while i started screws. Thanks for the deal on parts and, video. I would also suggest advising to check the nylon strips on felt at the front top. Mine were worn. But there was enough at the back of nylon to remove and, glue remainder in place almost as good as new. Again! ''THANKS!''

The only probelem was to take out the drum, because it was a washer and dryer combo. the dryer was on top, i did not have any room to pull out the drum

After removing the old drum glide there was tufts of felt and glue left behind. The DIY video (which inspired me to try this repair myself) says to use a scraper and wire brush to clean the drum edge. I decided to try a drill with a wire wheel. Worked great. The surface was shining clean in minutes.

Watched video on you tube went to PartSelect web site determined it was the rear bearing from the probable causes listed. Received part in two days and the job took less than thirty minutes. The limited access to the belt motor was the only difficult part of the job but by putting the belt on the idler pulley first and pulling down on the belt I was able to get it over the motor pulley. Thanks PartSelect for making this job easier than I thought it would be.

Replaced the front and rear drum bearings and changed the belt because the dryer was about 8 years old. The repair was easier than I anticipated thanks to the excellent repair video furnished by Parts Select. FedEx delivered the new parts within two days. Dryer works like new!

I followed the instructions in the videos that came with the email I got when the parts shipped. I would recommend looking at all the parts that come with the kit before you start. The video says to reuse some parts, but you have new ones. Also, after unplugging the dryer, I used a flat screw driver to pop the tabs on the 'lid' of the dryer. Removing the two screws that hold the front on was easy, and removing the front to sit aside. The flashlight is nice when you reach under the drum to get the belt off the idler pully and motor pulley. Wiggling the drum out was a little tricky but not hard. After removing the drum, I vacuumed the lint and really cleaned the inside of the dryer. Taking the screws out of the inside of the drum would be easier if you can put it up on a table or other work surface. Bottom line, I'm a girl with arthritis and did it by myself, you can too :) Dryer runs like a dream

I want to suggest that you also purchase the lower drum seal or guide as well. When I took it apart I realized I needed it also.
