What I would add to previous reviews is to pull the front off or the little acces grill in back and check to see what kind of belt you have. According to the model #, It showed the wide flat belt when in fact I had the smaller ribbed belt. Glad I checked before ordering.
A few things that will make your life easier is once you have the old upper guide/seal removed, put down the glue then use several med sized plastic spring clamps to hold the seal in place while the glue sets up, (@ 20-30 min). Their cheap and you should have some around anyway. When replacing the seals I would go ahead and replace the belt too. It's cheap and if your machine is 5+ yrs old probably is worn. Total cost of repair was about $60 (inc shipping). Took about 1 hr 20 min total time. Most of that time was scrapping the old seal material/ glue off the dryer front. Actual disassembly and repair maybe 1/2 hour. Other little tip is the clips for the lid of dryer is to use a flat screwdriver and gently push straight in until it's compressed enough to release the lid, it will pop up when pushed in far enough. That one took me a while to figure out.
Thanks to Part Select for such a helpful site. My dryer is like new again. Read more...

2. Removed the yellow clip screwed onto the top frame.
3. Removed the front frame of the dryer by unscrewing the two screws holding the front frame on – one on either side.
4. Mark w/ an (x) on same side of alignment for the 2 wiring connectors before separating them.
5. Removed the front panel by tilting it forward & lifted to unlatch it from the 2 clips at the bottom of dryer.
6. Unwound the belt encircling the drum by releasing the tension between the tensioner roller & drive pulley. (Its better to remove back access panel at this time & do this at the back since I found it necessary to do this anyway when re-installing the new belt).
7. W/ lifting motion, pulled the drum out from the plastic holder attached to the back of the dryer frame. Guided & completely removed the drum out of the dryer.
8. Unscrewed the 3 screws holding the old big bearing to the back of the drum.
8. Unscrewed the 2 screws & removed the plastic that had held the bearing at back of the frame.
8. Installed the new bearing by screwing it to the back of the drum with 3 screws. Be careful not to strip screws. Used help to hold new bearing in place & aligned w/ screws.
9. From the front, installed the plastic holder to the back of the frame by 2 screws and put the ball bearing in-between holder & the metal strip retainer coming from the back of dryer.
10. Used the grease that came with the kit on the plastic holder & the big bearing at the back of the drum.
11. Replaced w/ new belt then re-inserted the drum back into the body of the dryer frame, w/ lifting motion, re-inserted the bearing into the plastic holder.
12. Putting the belt into the drive & tension pulleys through the back access panel was easy but could be very hard to do if coming from the front.
13. Had to replace the front panel's top felt w/ glides that holds the drum at the front w/ a new one. Really important to pay attention to where the plastic glides excess portion is facing (towards front panel), otherwise the front panel might not fit when you snap it back to place.
14. Removed old felt remnants w/ blade scraper & sandpaper. Used adhesive that came w/ kit. Once tacky, put the new felt w/ glides on & used clamps to hold it in place.
15. Waited for 2 hrs. (watched a movie) then re-installed front panel. Make sure that the drum (front) lid rides on top of the plastic glides.
16. Latched bottom of front panel to the metal clips. Replace the 2 screws back into place holding the front panel.
17. Snapped the wiring connectors in place where the (x) marks align.
18. Lowered the top panel & snapped it back into place
Note: All parts came w/ fast delivery & OEM fit - very satisfied! Took my time & on every chance I cleaned & vacuumed all areas of lint & dirt since the dryer hasn't been serviced for more than 10 years... Read more...
