The felt seal should have included instructions.
If not here is a copy for you.

You do not need to cut it. It's a tight fit and you may need a extra set of hands or a clamp to help you hold it in place as you stretch it around the drum.

I have always removed the drum to install the seal. As I wait for the glue to dry a bit I clean out the rest of the dryer. The glue is really tacky and should help hold things in place. I sometimes use a spring clamp or two to help me hold it in place. Somedays I'm in the zone and don't need to use any clamps, just get lucky sometimes I guess. Not sure what else to tell you, sorry.

Maybe another tech will have some words of advice for us.

Good job!
You maybe able to see some light at first.
I rotate the drum around and check the seal from the outside to make sure it's not doubled over in any spots.
Once you run the dryer the seal will warm up and take shape a little more too.

I ended up putting on the drum first, then setting the drum in place with the front panel on then pushing the seal in place then glueing
Now if I have it on the correct way ??

Looks good, I probably let them sit and dry for maybe a half hour as I check out the rest of the dryer, clean the vent, etc...
