this is a fridgidaire built unit and does not contain drum rollers,but instead uses a "trailer hitch" type of bearing in the rear and a felt,teflon glide system in the front- to gain access, you'll need to first remove the power(unplug unit) and remove the centre transition(the metal peice that is on an angle) by removing 2 screws near the top and sliding the panel upward. then,remove the 2 small black phillips head screws in the bottom of the console endcaps and 2 roberts head screws that are located beside them-the control panel will then lift a bit and flpi forward. the front dryer panel can then be removed by taking 2 screws from the bottom and 4 from across the top. once the panel is off,disconnect belt and lift rear of drum upward- upon inspection,you will probably find you need to replace the rear bearing and the front glide/seal and if the element is broken or sagging,you will need to replace it as well(visible once drum is out)- all of these parts are available through this website.
