Hey all. Our Drier, which is a Kenmore series 80, just died. Based on the melted plastic smell coming from the back, and from the fact that it died after a couple of failed attempts to rev it with the starter button, I’m guessing it’s the motor that’s died on us. I’m also thinking it might be worth trying to replace that, since the cost of a new motor is a lot lower than the cost of a new drier.
Does anyone have experience trying to replace a drier motor? Is this an achievable goal, and if so, any tips on how I should go about it?
