Where do I find instuctions to replace rear drum bearing and front felt guides? Thanks
Answer Hello Dirtfan. You will need to remove the top panel, by removing the screws on the back of the panel and sliding it off. Then remove the control panel assembly. Next you will need to remove the front panel of the dryer. There you will see the felt seal 134440200. This is a glue down part. To remove the tub, you will need to remove the belt, and lift up on the tub and slide it out the front of the machine. Then you can change out the rear bearing. Hope this helps.

Hi - I just ordered the rear dryer bearing and I'm wondering how to properly disassemble the unit and replace the bearing. Thanks for your help!
Answer Hello Enev. 1. Open the door and remove the four screws holding the door to the hinges. Removing the access panel: The access panel is held to the upper side panels by two screws and two tabs. Remove the two screws and pull up and out to remove the panel. Opening the console: Disconnect pwer from the laundry center and remove the access panel. Remove the four screws, two on each side;holding the console to the dryer section side panels. Pull down and out on the console to release the tabs from the side panels. The console will now hang on the wires and the pressure switsh hose. Releasing the dryer belt; Remove the access panel. Push the idler pulley to the left and slip the belt off the motor pulley. Removing the dryer front panel: Open the console and remove the two screws holding the front panel to the side panels. Unplug the dryer door switch harness. Remove the four screws holding the front panel to the top and carefully pull the front panel forward. Removing the dryer drum: Disconnect the dryer drive belt from the motor. Raise drum to disengage the ball from the hitch and slide the drum out of the front. Note: You might need to remove the top of the dryer to be able to lift the drum out better. Now you can install the rear bearing kit.
