Are there any special tools needed to replace the motor in this model? That's the dryer motor. I know the blower wheel can be a challenge to get off on some brands never done a motor in a fridgadaire. Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks,
Rich

Search this forum for "blower wheel". There are different tricks from brand to brand. If I remember right, someone asked Samurai this same question, so your search should find his answer.
First, do no harm.

It turned out not to be the motor. The customer had another tech come and replace the bearing two months ago. He did not put in all the screws on the shaft. Two missing. fixed it with two screws I had from a previous repair.
