Thanks brntoast.

The motor was indeed seized, but I bought a used one for 50 bucks. Thanks for the oil tip, though.

I also had a broken coil which I replaced. Can you tell me now how to run the drum belt and any tips on attaching the drum to the bearing. There seems to be a hollow round sheet metal hubcap-type attachment that goes between the two, I have no idea how to line up the drum, hubcap, and bearing to screw in the three screws. Is there a trick I'm missing, maybe use a dowel to locate first?

Thanks for your continued help.

OK, managed to connect drum to bearing. Duh, I should've realized the easiest way to remove the drum (and afterwards, re-attach) is to remove it, bearing and all. This is done by opening a little access panel on the back of the machine, and unclipping a retaining clip to free the drum assy. This way, no need to remove the hubcap piece which guards the heaters from the drum.

Drum reinstalled, still no clue how the belt config should be, every way I try, there's slack. I plugged the machine back in and gave a test run. Motor running, heaters working, drum stationary. Almost there, folks. If anybody can attach the belt config, I'll be all set, Thanks!

Thanks very much Reg. The thing is, the motor shaft, when looking from the front of the machine, is to the right of the pulley wheel. These belt config diagrams, which seem to be from the back of the machine, all show the motor shaft and pulley the reverse position of mine. Is this normal? Thanks

:headscratch: I'm not sure what you're saying, but these are all "looking at the Motor pulley" wherever that may be ...

OK, I'll try and simplify. The horizontal position of he pulley roller and the motor shaft are reversed in my machine, compared to the diagrams above. Therefore the configs above seem to be incompatible with what I have.

Are there config diagrams for situations like mine, where the position of the pulley roller and shaft are like mine. I'll upload a pic.

From the rear of the dryer, put the belt around the drum rib side down, put both sides of the belt with the back against the idler pulley on the outside edge, make a loop and while pulling the idler assy down toward the motor pulley put the loop around the motor pulley so the rib side is against the pulley, carefully release the idler assy, if it slips you will sure wack your fingers...if it looks wrong it is on right and will be tight,

If you were, instead, facing the Motor Pulley, then the Motor would be on the lower right of the Drum,
as shown in the previous diagrams...

here's some more diagrams:

I do not know if your brand is made different than those with the GE, Hotpoint name, if so just imagine that photo reversed...

You ain't got the right motor I would bet on it.

It's the right motor. Anyway for this specific problem, the motor makes no difference, since the shaft of any motor will be at the same position, which as I'm saying for my machine seems to be the reverse position wrt the idler pulley than the diagrams posted indicate.

I installed the belt having to tension the pulley to get it on the drum tight as Pegi recommended (thanks) and ran the machine, but had to stop due to a shrieking sound. Will remove the drum again tomorrow and see what the trouble is. Just by hand now, the drum doesn't seem to move freely, it did on my first test before I put everything back together.

Will check tomorrow and post back.

Hi again. I think I located the source of the shrieking noise. The fan seems to move along the shaft about 1/2 inch, so that when it is close to the end of the shaft (ie. nearest the front of the machine) it rubs against the vent housing in which it is situated. Did I miss something in mounting the fan to the motor shaft.

Here's a pic of the two pieces I attached the fan with onto the shaft. One of course behind the fan, the other in front, with the screw attaching them together. Should there have been a spacer or something to prevent the fan from sliding laterally on the shaft?. Thanks!

is there a snap ring for this blower assy? i don't recall removing one on the seized motor nor seeing one on the replacement, just those two mating metal brackets that screw together.

It has to be "tight" . Center hole in fan not rounded out?Give it one more shot . If it moves again I have always installed a new fan and hardware.
