Was informed that I had a bad dryer motor and no warranty. Unplugged the unit. Removed to screws in the lint trap slot. Used a small blade screw driver to pop the 2 clips at the front of the dryer top. Lifted the top and rested it up against the wall. Removed 2 screws holding the machine front panel. Removed the front panel and removed the tub. Couldn't get the blower loose from the dryer motor so I cut it off with a hacksaw. Moral if you are going to replace the motor go ahead and by the blower too. It is less than $20.00. Popped 2 clamps loose holding the motor in and removed it. Placed the new motor in the unit. Strapped it down and attached the new blower. Plugged it in, put the dryer back togehter and tried it. It worked.
