I have removed the heating element and yes after turning it on the unit ran for 2 min and shut down again. So, you think I may need a new motor?

It is worth it to replace the motor. That is the heart of the dryer. Ain't much else in there.

Not only best price, If these suggestions are wrong you can return the motor.
I am certain the suggestions are right however.

Thanks, I got it. Now I am trying to remove the motor from the motor shaft and I can't. The motor shaft is plastic and is breaking. How do I remove it?

Yea, I had to bust it off... Now that I have done that. I will need a new blower fan (wheel). Once I have that will I need anything else to put my dryer back together again?

Thanks a lot for the help I really appreciate it... ;D
