So to remove the blower fan from inside the dryer, I turn the fan counterclockwise?

I have replaced the two coils that fixed the dryer back in live for about 5 months. Now another problem is only the motor spinning. No heat, and the igniter doesn't glow at all. I'd checked that there is no 120V from the motor to the igniter. Is it the problem on the motor's starter this time. Thanks.

Purchased gas ignitor AP3094138 but didn't light, measured 63 ohms (50~800). Checked gas coil, measured 1310 ohms (1000~1300). Checked 3 prong gas valve between 1&2 measured 13800 ohms (1300~1400); between 1&3 measured 587 ohms (500~600) and between pins 2&3 measured 19800 ohms. No voltage on ignitor and flame sensor is closed (conducts current). Looks like voltage comes in on black & white wires to 3 prong plug, measured 6.4 volts with motor running. There is a spike when turn motor off. Tried re-seating the large plug to motor, no luck. Motor runs fine, no power to ignitor. Is problem the motor for sure? If so I'll scrap this lemon. Can I get return credit for the ignitor (never energized)? Thank you.
