Question about Kenmore Dryers
Depends on what you would consider easy. The issue you are having is with the rear bearing and bearing support.Replacement of these requires removing the drum assembly After unplugging the unit remove the top panel,then remove the front panel, remove the belt remembering how it goes around the idler, then the drum is free to come out do so by pulling up slightly on the back of the drum to release from the bearing then remove drum. Replace the rear bearing support in the back of the unit,and the bearing (ball) that's attached to the back of the drum. The bearing support and ball come as a kit or can be bought separate get the kit,also make sure it comes with or buy separately the special high temp grease that is used when reassembling the rear bearing. All this sounds like a lot but once you get started is not really that tough is just sounds like a lot when you are writing it all down...Good Luck
