Thanks for contacting Fixya.
Please follow the instruction as bellow to replace or lubricate the rear bearing.
First, you need to loosen the the top control panel and then loosened the top flat roof panel which allowed me access to the inside of the dryer. Then, you need to remove the front panel which allowed access to the drum.
Most of your time would be spent in the disassembly and cleaning of the internal cavity around the drum. You should reach below the drum and removed the belt from the pulley wheels and then unscrewed the drum (from the inside) from the back of the dryer and bearing kit.
Remove the diffuser and clean it thoroughly. Then replace the entire drum bearing kit - the old one was almost completely dissentigrated. You probably should have applied some kind of non-flammable lubricant to the new bearing kit - the instructions did not include this step but after about 3 loads a slight squeak (different). Put everything back together - applying the new drum kit will require 2 sets of hands re-assembled the dryer and it works great, again except for the slight squeak that's still there.
