Dryer was a bit noisy with a full load of wet clothes
As per the repair videos on the site, I searched the internet for a couple of supplementary videos just to make sure I was doing it correctly. It was was all pretty easy. Expect to vacuum out and clean out the interior of the dryer. Also, to make things easier, disconnect the bulkhead and exterior like in the video, but also keep the top flipped up until reassembling, it'll make it much easier. When reinstalling the belt, remember how the belt is going to go around the pulley, you'll have to do this without sight as the barrel will the way and you won't be able to see what you're doing. It's really not hard but just keep this in mind. Also, as you disassembling, it would help to snap some pictures of where each screw goes and how; reassembly was a tiny bit tricky as I didn't do this.

dryer runs noisy
The only additional step I incorporated was to place a block of wood under the tension pulley arm to hold it in the full off position while installing the drive belt. This was very helpful especially since you are working by feel while threading the drive belt onto the motor pulley and tension pulley. Once they are in place the wood block can be removed to engage the tension pulley. The instruction videos brought out a couple of helpful tips that made the repair successful.

Dryer would squeek loudly
Removed door, and front bezel. Write the colors of the wires next to the door switch and the moisture sensor on the bezel so that you can remove the wires, this makes it easier. Lifted top up and pulled drum out, but did not remove belt. Inspected wheels and roller shaft. Needed to replace (2) Roller Wheels, (1) Roller Shaft, (2) Retaining Rings, & (2) Shaft Washers. Ordered parts from the site. Removed the Retaining rings. The retaining ring tool I bought from the hardware store did not fit the holes in the retaining ring, so I had to file the tips down. Once the retaining rings are removed, the washers and rollers come off easily. The Roller Shaft can be removed by loosening the nut on the back side of the shaft. Inserted new shaft and tightened nut, then replaced both rollers, and washers, and reinstalled the Retaining rings. Put drum back in place, tied all wires back in and reinstalled front bezel and door.
