Kirkland signature dryer by Whirlpool wont stay on. Model

Resolved Question:

Kirkland signature dryer by Whirlpool won't stay on. Model SEDX600JQ1. If I hold the start button, it will run until I release it (a few seconds max). Sometimes, if I hold the start button, it takes a second or two then starts running, but stops.

Is that the only possible problem? Sounds right to me, but I'd like to be 100% sure before I spend $100 on a motor/
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
definitely the problem unfortunately, the motor has a centrifugal switch in it and its bad, it takes over after the motor starts and keeps it running, we replace a lot of these, thanks Bryan

Bummer. Where can I find instructions on how to replace it? I'm pretty good at mechanical stuff, but I've never worked on a dryer before.
Expert:  Bryan replied 7 years ago.
these can be a pain to install, you will need to take the whole dryer appart to do it. you can click here for all the diagrams, also these videos show how the average dryer motor is replaced, yours is made by whirlpool but they are mostly the same basic instalation, hope this helps, thanks Bryan
