Customer Question

I have a GE profile type 405 gas dryer that seems to have a bad motor or starter capacitor, if it has one. I would like to take it apart to get at the motor. I could just start taking things apart but I would like to know were to start so I don't take things off un-nessesarily. Can you tell me the sequence?

Ok, open the dryer door and remove the screws at the top of the door opening and lift the top up then remove the screws inside the front panel then remove the front panel .

Remove the belt from the motor pulley and pull the drum out now you can get at the motor, if you require more assistance let me know please.
