Noisy operation
I removed the screws at the lint filter then released the fasteners at the front to allow me to open the top cover. I then unplugged the door switch and removed the 2 screws at top of front cover and removed the front. I then lifted the drum out of the dryer and removed the rear drum felt seal per instructions included with part. then glued the new seal to the rear of the drum. allowed the glue to dry (about 30 minutes) while waiting for the glue to dry I replaced the front felt bearing and seal. re-assembled the dryer and tested. Wow what a difference. I also watched both videos available on the site for the repairs I was making. Suggest when replacing the rear seal that you glue about 2 feet around and wait for the glue to set up (about 10 minutes) then install the remainder of the seal and glue in place.

Drum making noise when operating and vibrating loudly
At first thought drum belt. Could see a felt belt coming from under front of dryer. Googled how to open front panel of dryer. Followed instructions and immediately saw problem. Old seal (felt) had fallen apart. Seal goes on back of panel then drum goes around this. Reverse instructions for taking apart done.

drum making load noise when turned on
I removed drum from cabinet and noticed one of the drum support rollers was froze to spindle and wore down in one spot. Both front and rear drum seals were also worn. I ordered the parts and they arrived in 2days. The front drum seal was easy to install but not so much for the rear seal. I installed the rear seal before gluing bye clamping the seal every foot with 6inch clamps, 5 total and then start gluing and moving the clamps, to one side. as needed. I have done several of these now and this is the best way I've found. Support rollers are easy just need a pair of pliers and a small flat head screw driver. Installing the belt over the drum bye yourself is not easy but can be done. There are several videos online that are a big help.
