Kenmore (frigidaire/electrolux) laundry center 417.90812992

I am having a problem reassembling the dryer after replacing the drum bearing kit, belt and upper felt seal. The dryer drum has two glides. The new upper felt seal (5303937139) has three plastic glides embedded in a length of felt that is twice as thick as the old felt. I cannot insert the front panel into the drum!! It's either got to be because the: 1) replacement felt is so much thicker, or
2) replacement felt has glides & the drum
already has glides, or
3) appliance parts store just has the wrong
part number - have checked with them
Would really appreciate some expert advise as soon as possible as the laundry is piling up!!

Sorry to tell you this but they have made new seals for your dryer that requires the replacement of the drum also, Don't know if you can get the old style seals.

you have to place the front panel on the top first, then have someone LIFT THE DRUM while you rotate the panel down into place
