My Repair & Advice
We ordered two rollers, as generally advised on the internet, but would have only needed one. The right roller, over the heating element was gunked up and not turning properly. We probably would have gotten away with just cleaning and oiling the shaft, but the dryer is 15 years old, so we opted to replace both rollers. Parts arrived quickly and were as pictured. Video was extremely helpful and the dryer runs like new.
