The plastic piece off motor melted off. Do i have to replace the whole motor or can I buy this piece separately.
Also why do you think this occurred.
For the plastic piece that melted off the motor then you would need to replace the motor. You will also want to check the venting as it sounds like the motor could be overheating.
What are the steps for replacing the motor pulley whirlpool part AP3890688 in a crosley dryer?
Answer Sonja, After you remove power to the dryer, raise the top panel and remove the front panel(s) you'll need to remove the drum and belt. You then use a 7/16 in. open end wrench or an adjustable wrench on the front of the drive motor shaft, there is a flat area on the shaft. Use a pair of "vise grips" or an adjustable wrench and turn the drive pulley to the right (reverse threads) to loosen and remove the pulley. The pulley can be extremely tight and hard to remove. Reverse the procedure and test run the dryer.
