• Unsnap glide from each glide bracket.

7. Reverse procedure to reassemble.

NOTE: Verify felt seal on exhaust fan cover is airtight on flange of duct.

If seal is installed improperly air flow will be restricted which can cause poor dryer performance.

When installing the cylinder seal it is important that the stitching on the seal face towards the dryer center.

The short flap must be glued to the bulkhead and the long flap left loose.

NOTE: Adhere sealant (No. 22506P) to bulkhead using a continuious bead completely around the entire flange

where the felt seal contacts the bulkhead.

(located on each end of the terminal block) and pulling away from motor.

10.Remove screws securing motor mounting bracket to dryer base.

NOTE: When reassembling, be sure seal on exhaust fan cover makes airtight seal on flange of duct.

If the seal is installed improperly, the airflow through the exhaust system will be restricted which can adversely affect dryer performance.

NOTE: When reinstalling motor and exhaust assembly, be sure wire harness on right side is clipped to motor mounting bracket

and is routed along dryer base (between motor mounting bracket and right side of cabinet).

Tab on rear of motor mounting bracket must be inserted into slot in dryer base.
