I have taken the dryer apart so I can get at the motor. There are two "rings" on either side of the motor that uses to seat itself down on the mounting plate. Therefore, there isn't anything to grip on the front of the motor (nearest to the blower fan) to hold to keep the shaft from spinning as you loosen the motor from behind. The fan itself has a nut to attach it to the blower shaft so I guess I'll be gripping that and then gripping from behind the motor to free it. I hope that is correct. Anyway, I did find a place that ships internationally for $35 (+ the surprise Custom's charges!) with some pretty decent prices on OEM parts... www.appliancezone.com.
