Disconnected the lint vent and exhaust duct from motor assembly. Removed belt and drum then took out motor. You have to disconnect the fly wheel and housing to swap out motor. Motor is secured to assembly by 2 clamps, remove and replace engine. From there go back the way you came. Make notes of any wiring that you disconnect (dryer door/cycling thermostat)to eliminate any guess work putting it back together. The dryer is put together by sheet metal screws, small socket wrench very helpful.I disassembled the front of dryer and removed the top.
