Hello All, I just got my new motor and can't figure out where to open to replace it. Can any one shed some light? :D

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

Hey guys, My old motor has colored wires on it. The new one does not but the wires look like they are in the same locations. Do I have to do anything to the new motor or is it ready to go in as is?

Thanks for the Help...
