First of all, you will need to UNPLUG the dryer before any attempts to service the inside of the unit. High voltage is still present with the unit turned off.
On this model, there are two retaining clips under the top panel where it meets the front of the dryer. Look along the seam about an inch or so from each side. Place a putty knife in the seam where the clip is located and push straight in while lifting up. The dryer top lifts up, exposing the retaining screws that hold the front panel and door in place. The screws remove from the INSIDE of the dryer. You will need to disconnect the door switch wires and remove the lint screen BEFORE removing the front panel. Once the panel is removed, you should have access to the blower assembly and cabinet interior.
If you go to searspartsdirect.com and type in the model number you provided, all the drawings are there on how the dryer is assembled. I hope this information is helpful to you.

likely either the 2 rollers at the back of the drum or the idler pulley...small plastic pulley at the bottom keeps tension on the belt . the bearing can be oiled temporarily but will squeak again :)

Testimonial: "The You Tube video you suggested was excellent. I had already muddled through the repair before I got your response, but the video showed me something I didn't do right. (so that's where that extra clip went!) So I have to tear into it again. But this time with more knowledge. Thanks very much."
