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.

Would a bad drum bearing also cause the back of the dryer to heat up?
Answer Hello Tim. No, that is where the element is located. It is normal for the back wall to heat up. If getting to hot, you will need to check the vent on the unit.
My dater-in law says she is having to run 2 drying cycles to get her clothes dry. This happened before and the vent was plugged, but it's not plugged this time. It seems to be blowing plenty of hot air. I was wandering if it could be the thermostat or the moisture sensor.
Answer Dwayne, If the dryer is running 15 to 20 minutes and shutting off, then it could be a moisture sensor 131845802 or control board 134523200 . if the dryer is running and heating for the full cycle(40-60 minutes) then consider the hi limit thermostat 3204267 it could be "weak" and cycling early, because of the pervious vent issue, causing a lower temperature, and extended drying times.
