Our dryer is about 7 years old.
It has had some trouble getting going recently. When you push the button, it buzzes and tries to turn the drum.
It gives off a smell of ozone. I think the motor's shot.
I've read as much as I can on your site, but my model doesn't seem to fit any of your diagrams.
I've got the front off, but there's a plastic bulkhead that seems to be permanently attached with no user access.

1. How do I (or should I) get the plastic bulkhead off?
2. Could it be that I'm supposed to get at the motor from the side?

I've attached a pic. I have more from different angles.
I'm very open to the idea of hiring a qualified, reasonably priced professional in the Arlington, MA area.
thanks in advance.

that plastic peice is mounted to the front assembly- remove the 4  5/16 in hex head screws that secure the front and remove the whole thing at once. piece of cake.

I've got the housing off, but getting the motor out seems like it's going to be hard.
There are some clips that appear to hold it down, but I can't budge them.
Also, do I need to disconnect the blower?
Do I need those fancy clip pliers?

no,needlenose pliers will work(bent needlednose even better)- as for the clips,they are actually springs-use a 1/4 in nutdriver in the curled end of the spring-press down with the weight of your body and pry outward slightly,peice of pie- same deal to reistall- have fun,and good luck.

I realize this post is over 2 years old, but I am experiencing identical symptoms and curious to know how this problem was resolved.  Was it the motor? 

I've researched similar symptoms and other potential culprits have been the timer and/or push-to-start switch.

I'm inclined to believe it's the motor, because it seems the drum is a bit "tight" when spun manually.  How freely should it spin?

Thanks in advance for any input.  I don't know if it's appropriate to resurrect such an old post.  Perhaps I should start a new topic?
