Does the drum spin easily by hand?
yes but it seems to drag
I will try this later got to run for now thanks
When holding down the switch helping the dryer start to spin it will then spin on it's own. When I stop the dryer it needs help again to spin.
And with all this action I do not have to press the what I call the safety run knob on the control panel the will run as long as the timer dial is not in the off position

When I tried to look up the part online @ the address you gave me and other places no matches where found. As a side note this really does not surprise me. The dryer was in the house when we brought it and that was in 2002. Earlier today I called GE to see when the dryer was manufactured. I gave them the model and serial number and they came up with spring of 2001 as a mft. date. From other info on the dryer it was purchased at a store that went out of business in 1998. The model number is XXXXX 2650 BGL WH. Can you find any thing?
Point taken. I was mistaken about the model number after finding the manual. The part is $150. Could there also be an issue with the start switch on the panel? Since I do not have to push it to make the dryer run. Prior to this issue it worked as designed every time you opened the door one needed to reactivate the switch to start the dryer.
Chas I was talking to you befoe about My GE dryer. Since I realy have nothing to loose by trying to replace the motor I am trying. I have reached a sticking point of disconecting the motor from the blower. I have removed the spring clip from the belt side of the motor and the belt that end is now free. I have removed the nut that holds a retaining clip to shaft @ the blower blade side of the motor what is next? The motor wiggles but that all.
Optional Information: Brand: hot pointType of Appliance: DryerModel Number: dbl2650b glWhat have you tried so far?: The back of the motor is free not part that attaches to the blower
