How do you open the Dryer cabinet to replace the rear bearing?
You will need to use a putty knife to disengage spring clips between main top and front panel. Once you've got the top up, You'll find two 1/4 " screws near the top on the cabinet frame interior, remove those screws, and lean the top mof the panel out, disconnect the door switch wire harness and lift up and out on the front panel. You'll see and inspect the front drum glide/seal assembly attached to the door opening of the front panel. Once you have the front off, you will need to reach in through the cut out in the front frame and release the drum belt from the idler pulley. You then grasp the drum, and lift up on the back portion of the drum, to disengage the drum bearing shaft from the composite drum bearing , and slide the drum out of the cabinet. You should vaccuum and dust out the complete interior and all the components, then re assemble the dryer.
