Dryer drum would not tumble (rotate)
Take out dryer screen, and remove 2 retaining screws. Use putty knife to push both clips on the front corners of the top of the dryer to lift top off. The front of the dryer only has 2 retaining screws around where the clips are to remove the top. Remove those screws then lift up to disengage the hooks the front is sitting on. The drum should hang freely. Remove old belt/idler pulley assembly. When the new belt and pulley assembly are installed (slide the new belt around the drum, through the pulley assembly and around the shaft to the motor), rotate the drum a couple times to make sure it is lined up correctly. Then reassemble the dryer.

Dryer was making a squeaking noise, changed idler pulley, but need to replace the rollers which they are no longer available. Looked on amazon and found what I needed.
Unplug dryer, pry up top of dryer, take the two Phillips head screws from the lint screen and lift the top up. Remove two screws from front panel, lift up front panel and remove. Take tension off of pulley and remove belt from pulley and motor wheel. Remove idler pulley and reinstall.

Just like you showed in your instructions. But I am going to put the old idler pulley back in cause the new one makes a loud whining noise. Other than that it should be fine. The service I received from you guy's was great.This was a simple repair. Thank's again Bill

Squeeks like crazy while running
I replaced the drum rollers, belt and idler pulley, I had an 80-90% chance that it would fix the issue. The video on the website was spot on in every phase of the repair - just follow it as shown. By spending $45, I bet I'll get many more years out of this machine.
