Dryer makes horrible noise but drum still turns.
The old dilemma is whether to fix a >20y/o dryer, or just buy a new one. With minimal effort, it was easy to find the source of the noise by manually turning the drum. Noise in the front turned out to be the blower wheel which is located right in the front of the dryer. Removing about 6 screws shows the motor shaft wore out the plastic center of the blower wheel and so the blower wheel was not spinning properly and bouncing around in the housing. Typing in the Model # in PartSelect.com gave me the whole diagram and exactly what to order. Since I had the dryer apart anyway, I decided to go ahead and replace the felt seals and drum/motor belt and front glides. Easy instructions to do all of this is available on multiple YouTube videos. The only caveat is some of these items are held in w/ snap rings. It's possible to deal with snap rings using a small screwdriver and pliers but having special snap ring pliers makes this step a whole lot easier. In my case the drum support rollers and belt tensioner roller turned out to be fine and only needed some lubrication. Also, in this particular model, the felt seals are held on w/ sheet metal tabs and do not require the expensive heat resistant glue. All parts installed, dryer back together and works perfectly on the very first try! Saved me a ton of money and the wife is happy, thanks to this site!

Noisy @ front. Wobbly upon inspection.
Thanks to the website I first looked at parts schematics, then a short video on repair. I ordered the parts I thought I needed and repair was easily done. With front cover off, further inspection was done to foresee any future repairs.
