Could you give instructions for changing Amana LEA60AW dryer motor? It looks as if it can only be accessed from the front of the dryer. Thank you!
Answer Hello Steve. Disconnect power. Remove the lower access panel. Open door and remove lint filter. Remove screws securing the bulkhead to the panel. Disconnect wires from heater and thermistor. Remove the belt from the motor and remove the drum. Unplug wires from the motor. Remove the screws securing the motor bracket to the base of the unit. Pull forward and disengage the exhaust duct. Rotate and slide the motor assembly out of the unit. Remove the cover and the blower wheel from the motor. Pry off the clamps and replace the motor.
How do I access the drive motor to replace it? It does not appear that you can access from the back of the dryer. I was hoping there may be a video or intructions. Thanks
Answer Hello John,
The front panels will have to be removed and the main top raised. The drum is then removed and the motor is accessed. We can send you some illustrated instructions if you could re-post with a valid e-mail address.
Can I get the pulley off this motor? Or is there a pulley that would work with this motor?
Unfortunately the pulley appears to be pressed onto the motor shaft of your unit and cannot be replaced. You would have to replace the motor assembly 2200376.
Where do I connect the Green Ground Wire for this Electric Motor - AP4029141 ? The original motor 501211 connected the ground wire (via screw) directly to the motor's metal bracket/housing. I also noticed the wiring harness connection is on the opposite side as the original, but the harness still reaches.
Answer Josephus, Looking at the motor from the front of the machine, the motor centrifugal switch should be rotated so the switch assembly is in the 1 or 2 O'clock position, " When reinstalling motor and exhaust assembly, be sure wire harness on right side is clipped to motor mounting bracket and is routed along dryer base (between motor mounting bracket and right side of cabinet." The ground wire will attach to the rear motor bracket with a 1/4 hex head self tapping screw. The other end of the wire will be attached to the hole in the motor casing to the right of the switch assembly. This motor position will keep the wiring away from the idler arm and pulley, which moves during the tumble action of the dryer and deter any damage to the wiring.
