You have to take the top off the dryer and the front. Then the inside of the dryer is on a hinge. You can lay the whole tub assy down in front. Just pull forward. Unhook the ground wires first below the drum. Then you can access everything u need.

yah i did not wright the problem well, getting access to it i have no trouble. the problem was the bolt that holds the bearing shaft was spinning. so the shaft wood not tread out and  off the bolt.

so what i did was remove the side panel took it home and on a proper bench drilled out the head of the bolt 1/8 inch off eage on two sides drilled it all the way thurw  panel. got a set of needle nose vise grips i had to take these to the grinder to make them fit. set vise grips in holes it held grate and i was able to remove bearing shaft.
