Unplugged dryer. Released top and tilted back. Removed front of dryer. Grabbed upper drum glide with pliers and pulled off. Grabbed lower drum seal with pliers and removed. Used paint scraper to remove major glue residue and followed with acetone. Clean up really well. Applied glue (furnished with upper drum glide) sparingly. A little goes a long way! Placed glide in position and secured with masking tape. Performed same routine for lower seal. Let it sit about 15 minutes for glue to cure. Removed tape and reversed disassembly procedure. Plugged in dryer and marveled at my awesome success!! Seriously, an easy job; anybody should be able to do it.

This repair was very easy and straight forward. I removed the front of the Dryer, following the video instruction on PartSelect website.Removed the old upper Drum glide, scraped the fron clean from any residues, applied 2 strings of glue and applied the new Drum Glide and holding it for a couple of minutes only to dry. The lower Drum seal was not too bad so I only cut of the worn out area, cut a strip of the new drum seal to fit perfectly and applied the new seal after scraping the door clean from residue. After about 5 minutes, I reassembled the Dryer and it worked like a charm. Thanks Part Select for the supplied instructions. Very Very easy and it saved me from purchasing a new Dryer.

Had the macnine apart before ordering the Bearing Assembly. Reading other comments convinced me to order the Bearing Assembly. Parts were shipped very quickly after ordering and following the instructions on the web site things went back together easily.

followed the video instructions....easy as pie. Glad i bought the belt too....the belt on my dryer was very worn. Changed the bearing with the kit. Very easy to do. The whole job was done in an hour and a half....back together and running without the squeak. Glad i repaired instead of buying a new dryer. Next time i have a problem with an appliance, i will be checking PartSelect first.

Found instructions on "UTube"some of the screws were in a different position but you can see them. While you have the dryer apart it's a great time to clean it and also as long as you've gone this far replace the belt,it's probably time.

I shut the door too hard, and the old latch fell down into the inside of the dryer.
