Noisy
Used putty knife to release catches on dryer top. Removed two screws in Lint Filter cover. Used Nut driver to remove the screws holding the front on. Removed the drum and had easy access to all the parts I was having trouble with. I believe the real problem was the Idler pulley but since I was already there I replaced the drum rollers also. While drum was out I vacuumed the inside of the cabinet. After parts were replaced i put everything back together in reverse order. Very Easy

Squealling when dryer starts up then squeals off and on while running
We had to take the dryer apart first to figure out what the problem was. Put it back together after determining what was the problem, order parts ,receive parts in the mail, tear dryer back apart install new parts, close dryer up, test run, Get Thank-you kiss from wife!!!

The dryer started to rattle very loudly
I pulled off the front panel to access the motor and pulley systems underneath the tumbling cylinder. I disconnected the tension spring on the pulley assemble. Then after sliding the belt off the pulley, I removed the screw that held the pulley to the bracket. I put the new pulley on, slide the belt over the new pulley and attached the spring. Nothing difficult, just a little uncomfortable squeezing both hands into the bottom space.
