I had to spin drum for dryer to start, bad start winding on motor, not sure if the problem could have been fixed by replacing the motor contactor. I could not find a part # for just the contactor.

You have to disassemble the dryer. I looked up how to on youtube.com. I am grateful that people take the time to record the steps in which to do just about anything. Disassembled and ordered motor and fan, damaged fan taking it off, got it in in just a couple of days, installed motor, fan and drum, tested before complete assembly. Works great. Thanks

removed 4 screws. 2 in the back and 2 at the lint screen door. Remove top lid of dryer and looked down and there was the door switch with the broken actuator spring. A diagram of the dryer with part locations is very helpful. I checked the switch with volt meter to make sure it was ok. It was ok! Replace the actuator and put every thing back together and dryer works just fine. Thanks to PartSelect I was able to buy the actuator spring buy itself and not have to buy the switch also.

You know -- you take it out and clean it every time you do a load of laundry. The old one had holes in it, so we bought a new one. It fit. End of "repair."

Trouble shot to failed motor. Ordered motor and new drive belt. The hardest part is figuring out how the dryer dis-assembles. Follow Parts Select on-line instructions. Also, several good instructional videos on You Tube! My recommendation is to order a new "blower wheel" when changing motor on a gas fired dryer. The heat combined with age bonds the blower fan to motor shaft. It had to be broken off in pieces to remove motor.
