Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
ok . open the door and look along the top where the door shuts and see if there are screws holding the top down if so remove those and lift the top and pull it forward. then down the inside on each side you will find a phillips head screw holding the front panel on ,one on each side remove these and pull the front at the top out lift it off the bottom clips and remove door switch wires and set the front asside, then take the acces panel to the belt of in the back and release the belt, pull the drum straight out and then you can change the bearing. theres no need to remove the screws inside the back of the drum on these , just pull it forward and the drum will come out. thanks Bryan

your welcome, when you pull the drum sometimes it tight getting through the front of the dryer. in most cases all you need to replace is this. Part 3410it just slips over the post on the drum. thanks Bryan
