I'm guessing the motor is locked up and has some thermal protector that opened when I kept trying to start it.
I started taking the thing apart, I have worked on it before and eventually figured it out, but I can't figure out today how to access the electrical components inside the triangular shaped panel / console at the top rear of the dryer to do some testing. I took out the sheetmetal screws from the back of the panel attaching the panel to the dryer, I removed two screws from the rear top corners of the panel that were attaching some kind of plastic hinge looking things to the panel, I wrestled the top of the dryer off with the whole panel still attached to the top (without breaking anything yet).
My questions are:
What screws or clips am I missing to get the top electrical panel open?
Do you guys think the symptoms indicate a motor that won't turn and what would be by next step if that's the case?
What's my next step if you don't agree with my guess?
The dryer has been putting brown marks on our light clothes. I retired my last dryer when it was 10 years old because I had replaced the roller guides/bearings once already and it started marking up the clothes like this one now is. This dryer is now ten years old and I have done one repair on the roller guides/bearings. My guess is I'm looking at a motor, new felt gaskets/adhesive and the guides (which I think I should do while I have the drum out) and the 2 to 4 hours to complete the repair, does that sound about right? I'm considering deep sixing it.

Use the instructions for the Sears Kenmore, Whirlpool, Roper, Kitchen Aid, Estate dryer with the lint filter in the door.

Does whirlpool make a dryer that's 27" wide like my old Kenmore, which has the drop down loading door?
