One of the roller and bearing assemblies froze up and spun on the roller shaft to such an extent that it has compromised the rear roller bracket that it was attached to. I believe that I need to replace the entire tumbler back assembly, however I can't seem to find that part. Any suggestions?

Thanks.

Why do you feel you need to replace all that? Roller gone, understood. Axle that roller spins on? Those are super-hardened steel and usually do hold up to a beat-to-hell roller, but once in a long while need replacing. I've never heard of or seen damage beyond the axle, although this dryer is a poorly built design (in my opinion). Do you have the ability to take a picture? The whole back panel is shown here:

Here's your roller shaft. No need to change the whole back.

The bracket that is spot welded onto the tumbler back assembly, that the roller shaft bolts onto, has lost it's integrity. There is a hole almost the size of a quarter that has developed around the hole the shaft goes through. i have a picture and I am trying to learn how to include it in this discussion.
