Drive motor bearing failed

My Repair & Advice
Replaced the motor. While in there, I replaced the blower wheel because it was fused to the old motor, the rear drum support wheels, and the seal on the lint screen housing. Everything was an exact fit with no drama. Never having done this before, it took a while (and some skin) to align everything as it went back together. Especially the drum alignment and the front panel with the clips at the bottom and the screws at the top (a two person job in our house). Otherwise, after watching the videos on YouTube, the job was smoother to accomplish than I had imagined it would be. Thanks especially for the videos!
