I have a Frigidaire Dryer ModelFSE747GES1 that was hesitant

Customer Question

I have a Frigidaire Dryer ModelFSE747GES1 that was hesitant to start without spinning or moving the tub. I thought it might be the a worn belt which was replaced. At first I could start the dryer by spinning the tub, closing the door, and turning the start knob. At times I only had to move the tub a few inches. Dryer would sometimes stop prior to the time set.
JA: Can you guesstimate how old your Frigidaire is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?
Customer: Purchased 12/10/97
JA: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?
Customer: Yes
JA: Anything else we should know to help you best?
Customer: If I'm unable to fix myself, ie. have to purchase an new dryer, it is a stackable set with the washer. Are there any new dryers available that are stackable compatible.?

Your motor has failed. The motor is not much harder to replace that the belt. Are you sure you want to replace the machine?

Well, unfortunately, that motor has been discontinued, part number###-##-#### I looked on eBay and Amazon and can find nothing. A new dryer may fit on the washer with some modification but will not bolt down and they start at around $1000.
