If you are good with DIY then you can give it a try. Its a bit of a strip down of the dryer to get at this.

The only special tools you will need is torx screwdriver bits (star shapped screwdriver bits)

You need to remove the top and then both side panels.

Release the belt from the motor and remove the back panel.

Then you need to lift the drum out and then you can access the front felt seal from there.

The part number for the seal kit is 00096416

What I suggest you do first is once you have the top and both side panels off take a few pictures of how it is so you can refer back to that if you need to.

So the only special tools you need are the torx bits. Then its just normal screwdrivers and pliers from there.
