you need to check the blower in this and make sure you dont have a sock or something stuck in it. if the blower is clear and you still have a problem then it may be the motor is failing. your model # XXXXX XXXXX can you get me full model # XXXXX I'll check the cost of motor for you, thanks, Bryan
Complete model number is XXXXX 76902.
I'm 100% sure there is no sock in the blower. I had it apart and cleaned it and it turned OK. My question was how to remove the drum so I can get a better overall look in there.
I'll be back to this machine in about 10 minutes myself. Thanks Bryan.
I guess that we are almost there. However, the link I needed the most was scrubbed by the site. Here is a copy paste of your last sentance "click here for complete diagram of belt and motor assembly, DANGEROUS URL REMOVED%2flis_png%2fPLDM%2f10052269-00002.png let me know if this helps. thanks Bryan "
Can you resend in another format?
I dont know why it does that once in a while, try this. http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/getSubComp.pd?modelNumber=11076902692&productCategoryId=0151200&brandId=0582&modelNa me=GAS-DRYER&diagramPageId=00002&componentDescription=CABINET&documentId=10052269&backToLink=Return%20to%20Sub%20Components%20list thanks Bryan
That is an exploded diagram of part numbers. I'll go ahead and click "accept" and authorise payment because I belive that you did make a good faith effort. But I'm still somwhat in mystery.
In the old days when I was in autobody, we had manuals that would explain/demonstrate removal and installation so that was my expectation. Maybe such things are not available in your biz...
If you find an additional inspiration, please feel free to send.
I just figure that I would close the loop for you. I did amputate my dryer today. In the end I pulled the drive motor/blower and took it to a place that could check it for me. It was fried.
So botXXXXX XXXXXne, your diagnosis was correct - minus the sock. Because the motor was so expensive, I ended up purchasing a new (to me) - used appliance which is now delivered and operating behind me as I write this.
Interesting experience. I spent $10 on this service that in hindsight that i wouldn't have. but i learned something and would use the service again.
