Customer Question

I can hear my dryer trying to turn, can hear the buzz of electricity anyway, what i want to know is can i fix my motor easily and how? i build computers, fix flat screen tv's and can work on and fix my car. is it that hard? My dryer is an old Kenmore model #96250100. I opened the door after it was going for an hour or so to get clothes out, it hasnt worked since. I did check the little doo hickey on the door that wont let it come on if the door is open and its not broken or loose. I want to rebuild the motor if possible, or get a new one and be able to install it, whatever is cheapest and best for this situation. Thank you in advance.
