For Whirlpool Idler Pulley (Part Number: AP3094197)

My gas dryer started making a terrible squealing sound last night. When I manually rotate the drum, it sounds like the pulley bearing may be the source. I noticed in your other responses that baby powder is recommended to lubricate. Do you think I will have success with the lubrication path, or should I just make the replacement? In either case, when I took off the front panel, the pulley arm was visible, but the bearing looked like a challenge to service from the front. Can you also help me with the best way to access the pulley? Thank you.

ANSWER Hello Jeremy. You do access and repace from the front of the unit. It is best to remove the drum when replacing and it is best to replace the pulley in the unit.
