    Sorry, we couldn't find any existing installation instruction that matched.
    Loud noise & clothes hanging in drum.
    1. Remove power cord from wall outlet. Unlatched the top lid of the dryer by pushing a flat screwdriver under the R & L sides where a metal clip on each side holds the top down.
    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...

    Loud screeching noises from the rear of the dryer whenever in was running.
    We unlatched the top of the dryer by pushing a screwdriver under the two areas where there were metal clips holding it down. We then removed the yellow clip screwed onto the top frame. We removed the front frame of the dryer by unscrewing the two screws holding the front frame on--one on either side. We didn't undo the wiring to the controls, we just kind of pivoted the front aside. We pulled the drum out from the plastic holder attached to the back of the dryer frame also unwinding the belt encircling the drum. Then we unscrewed the 3 screws holding the bearing to the back of the drum. We removed the plastic that had held the bearing by undoing the screws to the back of the frame. We installed the new bearing by screwing it to the back of the drum with 3 screws. We installed the plastic holder to the back of the frame by 2 screws and put the little ball bearing in. We used the grease that came with the kit to grease up the plastic where it held the big bearing attached to the back of the drum and inserted the drum back into the body of the dryer frame, pushing the bearing into the plastic holder. The hard part was getting the belt back around the drum and through the pulley on the motor that holds the belt. When that was accomplished, we put the yellow plastic holder back on the front frame with the screws and put the front back on after thoroughly cleaning the inside bottom area where there was a lot of lint. Then we snapped the top back into place.

    Very loud squeek in rear of dryer
    The part arrived in only 3 days and I didn't even pay for express shipping!

    Once I popped the top lid off, and removed the two screws holding the front on it was a breeze from there. Simply take the drive belt off by loosening the spring loaded tensioner on the bottom, lift entire drum slightly up and then out. Remove the screws to replace bearing on rear of drum (4) and the screws that hold the bushing assembly in place (2). Reverse the process and you will be up and running in no time at all.

    I was about to buy an ew washer and dryer set, but thanks to PartSelect.com, i saved over $1000!

    Back Drum Bearing Worn Out
    It took about 20 minutes, first I popped the top off using a flat screwdriver in my leatherman and removed the wires on the door switch then two screws holding the front on, and then I removed the drum which took a little longer because the belt tensioner was difficult to release because of limited space. Removed old bearing (ball and socket) and replaced with new one. I then reassembled in reverse order. Working great. . .
