I dont have clear access to the motor right now but I am pretty sure it is welded frame. Also I have noted that some dryers have a 1/4 HP motor and some have a larger 1/3 HP. Wish I could find one of the 1/3 HP versions to try in this unit. I have a couple of old 1/4 HP motors in my shop. One of them is for a blower wheel that slips on the shaft which has D shape at the end of the motor shaft and is retained with a snap ring. The other is for a blower wheel that is threaded on to the motor shaft (with LH threads). Both of them were changed out due to this same problem.
