Unplug the power cord or remove power to the dryer.Open the dryer door and remove the screws holding the top to the front panel. Raise and remove the top panel of the dryer. On each side of the front panel interior approximately 3 inches down from the top of the panel, you'll find a screw, securing the front panel to the cabinet flange, remove both screws. Slightly lift the dryer drum up and pull out on the top of the front panel to clear the drum, lift up and out on the front panel assembly to free the panel from the bottom retainer clips. You can now install the new drum glides
