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.
