This is my first time to work and replace the front drum seal. I received the parts I ordered but it did not come with intuctions. Where can I find a manual or video instuctions on how to replace the front drum seal ?

Efren G. for Model Number GGW9250PWI Whirlpool gas dryer.

ANSWER Hi Efren. We will try to explain it as best as we can. Remove the power. Remove the lower panel . Remove the top. Remove the front console / control by unplugging the molex connectors and the screws the attach it . It may need to be gently unclasped with a screwdriver where the back top and sides of the panel clip together. There may also be a hidden screw above the door at 12;00 area. Then lay the panel aside and protect it from scratching. This will give access to the front door panel upper and lower screws. Once these are removed, you may need to look inside the back of the sides to see if there are any bolts going into the back of the front panel sides to remove. Once you have the front panel loose, you will need to disconnect the door switch connector. Lay the panel aside protected. Then concentrate on reaching into the lower RT.corner and as your arm is going over the top of the blower wheel, it will reach in the back of the motor area and find the belt and belt tensioner. Pull up on the pulley and release the belt as you notice the rib side of the belt is into the motor grooves an riding on the drum at a certain area. Now remove the inner front panel that the felt in question part # 280114 is riding on. Once it is removed you then let the tub lay down gently as noticing the rear of the tub felt rides on the outside of the tub. Then use a putty knife and scrape the old felt off. Use the glue liberally and apply the new felt. Let it dry for 24 hrs. before using the unit and keep the door open with the power off so the vapors will evaporate in time also. Reassemble in reverse. Thank You.
