Rick, I double checked his dryer at the Sears parts site and his model calls for this upper felt:
134440200 Upper Felt Seal


That one has no plastic white glides on it. I remember when I worked at Sears they did have some Kenmore 417 models that didn't have the white plastic glides, just the felt that the front of the drum rode on.

Glad to help Rick.

darrenjesse: If you bought it from AppliancePartsPros.com, You can return that part for a full refund, then order the felt I posted above.

Thanks guys, I was able to put everything back together. However, looks like the dryer isn't spinning now. This has to do with the belt right?

Fixed it all up this morning - the belt had fallen off the pulley while installing the front. Thanks Rick and Jake for all the help!

Looks like something else is going on now.

While the dryer is running, 5 lights are flashing and beeping every now and then. This doesn't stop the cycle so I'm not sure what exactly
Here is a video:

Ok, I've seen that before.

Your control board is starting to go haywire, you'd need to replace it.

Its on back-order though. Just keep using your dryer if its still heating and running good.
