Hello Dale, thank you for your inquiry. We have on our site, a testimonial from a previous customer that shared his repair. He says: Unplug dryer, remove screws and panel. Take picture of dryer motor so you will put wires back the same way . Remove screws using Allen wrench, then unplug wires put the new motor on secure, then put wires back on. View the photo make sure the wires are the same. Then plug your dryer back up. Total Repair Time 15-30 mins. Good luck with this repair.

Screw drivers
My dryer would not start
Step 1. After unplugging the dryer from the wall outlet, Removed 6 screws holding the back cover of the instrument panel.
Step 2. Removed the start switch by gently twisting left and pulling out of the socket.
Step 3. Removed the three wires, one at a time and placed them on the new start switch, then installed the new switch in its socket by gently twisting to the right.
(Note: plugged power cord back in and tried the new Start Switch. Still would not start.)
Step 4. Removed the Timer Knob by pulling strait off the shaft, then replaced with the new knob. Pushed the Start button and the Dryer worked. The old knob was obviously stripped so as to slip on the Timer shaft, giving the impression it was moving but it was not.
