  Starting torque is not a problem with dryers due to the huge ratio between motor pulley size and drum size. This is also why start capacitors are not required either.

Those defrost boards can be replaced by a simple timer.  The connector is the same.  The two "extra" connectors are for the door switch.  The board is counting how often the door opens, how long the compressor has run, temps, etc.  Just leave the door switch wiring unconnected when you put in the timer, it won't affect anything else. 

Now your fridge will run just like the models with timers - until they change the wiring harness.
Well, I got tired of using grippy gloves as my fingers are getting older.  The plier tool came in handy and I realized that it's way less painful. 

Yes, pull the cover directly towards you and it will unsnap itself.

Common, new one is updated and won't give you trouble. Correct on svc call being more than part.

The machine is only around 5 years olds but I can't imagine a service call coming in less than the cost of the part so I guess I'll just pick one up Monday and pop it on.  I gather then that this is a relatively common failure and I shouldn't be concerned about some other internal problem at the root cause of this?

Thanks. I will get to it today to change it and see how it works out. the 1/4 HP motors seem a bit small for starting torque to turn the drum as compared to a 1/3 HP unit. I wonder if the std production model dryers in the higher price levels have a small 1/4 or 1/3 HP motor being sold these days ?
WOW....we will try this in a bit. Sounds pretty weird to just grab a piece of plastic and yank on it, especially with pliers. Just pull it up and towards yourself is what you are saying Wild ?

Take out the little water drip tray.  Using a pair of needles nose pliers, grab the rail bracket where the drip tray was attached to and pull towards with one hard pull.  It will sound like the something broke but that's how you pop this cover off.

They don't sell just the inner portion of the rotor.  You have to order the whole thing.  If this unit is less than 10 years old, it's covered under the parts warranty. 
Trying to get to the display PCB to replace it, but can NOT figure out how to get the front panel cover off of the dispenser unit. Anybody know what the trick is ? See picture of my french door and dispenser please...bottom freezer. Hopefully do not access by taking the inside of the door apart !
