Step 1 unhooked the power. Step 2 unlatch the front panel. Step 3 remove the three screws holding the control panel in place. Move the panel to the right and fold it back over the back of the washer out of the way. Step 4 remove the two screws in front holding the top in place. raise the top slightly and unlatch the switch and slide it out of the top. Remove the top and set aside. Step 5 remove the screws holding both ends of the straps and replace the straps with the new ones. To get the back ones the tub has to be moved over to gain access. It is easier to install the rear straps first, that way the tub will move more. Reassemble in reverse order paying attention to the position of the latches for the front panel so they line up with the slots and latch correctly. After assembly is complete check the tub for level.
Were these instructions helpful?
the video does not show it but the led lock did not unplug / i had to pop it out at the holder
Went by the instructions and replaced all 4 straps.
On this model you use a screw driver to pop the front of the dryer off. Then you remove a screw from the L bracket on each side that holds the top down. Prop the top up so you have easier access to the back screws that hold the rear dampening straps in place. Remove and replace one strap at a time. The only hard part is getting your hand back in to the screws. Otherwise this is an easy process.
Follow the videos. They explain how to do this repair extremely well. Don't forget that the nut that holds the basket is a left-hand thread. I used a pipe wrench and a hammer to break it loose. I used a screwdriver to stab the old seal and pry it out without damaging the tub. It came out pretty easily. I used hand soap to lubricate the new seal and fit it in after cleaning out the tub's seal seat. It's a relatively easy job and now it doesn't leak and the noise is greatly reduced. I also lubricated the bearings with Lithium grease but that required taking the entire machine apart which is also explained in another video......
took front off top off and put the bands in and back together less than 30 min

Took the front panel of the machine off and located the straps. Removed them with the nutdriver. Install all four in under 30 minutes. The best thing was the video your company provided. It made it easy to fix the problem and for that i'm thankful.
