I removed the back before I relized that the motor was under the drum. I removed the front and the drum and accessed the motor. I used a small flat head screw driver to prythe brackets that held th motor in place. I had a bit of a problem removing the motor from the fan. Then I read the web site and figured out that the treading was a LEFT thread. Still had some problems and ended up removing the pully wheel and using a pipe wrench to get the fan off the motor.

I wish I had taken a picture of the pully and belt to see how it went back together, but it went back easy enough.

Very pleased with my effort and guess I saved about $300 bucks on the repair, and the 2 plus weeks to get the guy to my house.
