The dryer was making noise.
I removed the two screws that hold the front panel to the top panel. I removed two more screws that hold the front panel to the side panels. I separated the front panel from the side panels and removed the drum.
I could see on the front panel the drum slides were badly worn. One was gone.
The new parts installed easily using no tools at all. Everything snaps in place. The new foam gaskets press and stick to seal the duct work. The felt strip pressed into place.
I replace all the panels in reverse order and plug it in. It operates fine, but the motor is making the noise. I will look into replacing the motor next.

Noisy and took too long to dry clothes
Easy repair. Removed top of dryer and removed two screws to front panel and door assembly. Old front air duct assembly was worn and broken, so it literally fell off the panel. I cleaned the front panel and door assembly of all the lint and dirt, and snapped the new parts into place. The new parts came with the gasket and felt drum seal already installed, to all that had to be done was to snap it into place. Installing the drum slides was a breeze. I simply had to slide one end in the slot, position the hole over the pin, and slide the other end in. I put everything back together, and ran a full cycle for test. Dryer works like new, and run quiet.

Terrible squeak and slow drying
Open it up. Try to fix with duct tape. Test. Fail. Order parts.
Put slides on, open it up, put parts on door, align drum, close it up.
Start, smile and BRAG!!!!
Works faster, fluffer clothes and I'm a happy Mom because now I can run whenever and there is less wrinkles.
