Removed the two screws to the lint screen. Popped open the top panel and swung up to open.Removed the two socket head screws holding on the front panel and then lifted up and out to remove the panel.Disconnected the drum belt from the bottom tensioner pulley and then removed the drum.I then replaced the two drum support rollers and the belt tensioner pulley. I put the new belt around the drum and reinstalled the drum. From the bottom, I threaded the new belt around the new tensioner pulley.I then reinstalled the front panel and top panel in the reverse of disassembly.All went well.

I started trying to locate the noise. I started to remove screws in the rear plate. Removed the rear plate. Couldn't find the noise. Had to remove the top cover and operational controls. Couldn't locate the noise. I figured it was a bearing that went bad somewhere, but I coulnt find it. During the search for these drum rollers I was able to thouroughly clean out old debris and lint caught in the machine for years. Finally I located the bottom front cover, took it off, and located the problem. At this point I went online, located the part with these guys, ordered it and got it delivered in like 2 days. Pretty quick. I then went back and replaced the both drum rollers in like 1 hour.Dryer works and sounds great now.
Took of the old roller and replaced it.
Opened up the front of the dryer. Saw that the belt was partially torn. Also noticed that the wheels weren't very smooth. So went online, found this website, measured the belt described with the one in the dryer after I took it out. Also replaced the drum rollers because they were worn down. Received the parts in 3 days. Immediately replaced the parts and sounds like new. No noise and works great! I'm happy and so is the family. Thank You! Why pay more for replacement parts at Sears.com or otherside when you can get them cheap here!!!

I removed the 2 screws under the lint cover and popped the top of the dryer up and back. I then unplugged the safety switch wire on the upper right of the front cover. Next I removed the 2 screws holding the front panel on and popped it off while supporting the drum. I took the drum out after taking the belt off it. One of the rollers had the rubber stripped off it. This was kind of curious since I put in a full kit including belt and rollers a few months ago. I replaced the damaged roller and reassembled. I will save the second roller in case it happens again. There is no apparent damage to the drum so I have no idea why the previous roller didnt last.
The part came quicker than expected. The repair was relatively simple, thanks to all the posts on this site. I was able to get to the rear rollers without having to remove the drum entirely. This helped. Overall, the repair was inexpensive and not very time consuming. Plus it gave me a chance to clean out the inside of the dryer.
Completly gutted every part of the machine, to put in the drum support rollers. Really wasn't that difficult. But you will need 2 people. One needs to hold the drum while one replaces the drum roller.
remove the front panel, belt [notice the way the belt is fasten] remove the tub, support bracket to the drum roller, and slide the new drum roller on and place the tre ring in the slot. then re-install everything in reverse
took the drum out and replaced the wheels there was nothing to it
Removed the two screws holding the top. Popped the top. Removed the door wires. Removed 2 screws at the top of the front panel. And removed 2 screws from the bottom of the front panel. Pulled the front forward dropping the drum. Relaeased the tension of the belt pulley. Pulled the drum straight out. Removed the right roller. It was worn out. Placed the retaining clips inner and outer. Lubricated both drum supports with lithium grease. Replaced the new belt with the belt tensioner. Reassembled drum, front panel and top. Dryer runs like a Top now. Careful of the sheet metal edges very sharp.....
Take out the two screws the hold the lint screen filter compartment in place. Remove the two top clip retaining screws, and lift the top LOOSE and turn it a bit out of the way. I didn't find it necessary to remove the top. Unclip the two wire electrical connector at the top - front, and remove the 1/4 " screws the secure the front. Lift the front up and out of the way. Slide the drum belt off the tensioner and moter pulley and slide the drum out the front. Remove and install the rollers ( and its just that quick) and while your in there. Clean up a bit ... cant hurt right? Especially on and around the motor. Reverse the procedure but rotate the drum a few turns to properly position the belt. Total E.T. is maybe 20 minutes and on a 1 - 10 scale for "degree of difficulty ". This is about a 2. Save the money and do it yourself.
