I have a gas stacked frigidaire dryer and washer. I assume the motor has gone because one you push the start button the drum does not turn. How do you get to the motor to replace. Does the top and back come off and how do you do it. alan

I would bet the manufacturer has an adapter for just this kind of problem. I did an installation on a stacked unit with a similar situation and there was an offset angle piece that attached the base of the dryer to the top of the washer. The front had a molded plastic piece to allow the dryer to rest on the front of the washer.
Hope this helps
stacks vary, you may be able to access between washer and dryer... there is usually a panel there, but some do have the large acces panel in the back and yes you can access the belt... watch your fingers aroound the motor because when you put a new one on, the tension is very tight
You are supposed to remove the top of the washer, and the dryer feet lock into brackets...but being lazy I just bolted the dryer to the washer using some metal straps (1/16" x 8 x 4 ") with some machine screws, and it's been fine for years. Not pretty, but I had the same question and no handy internet to help me at the time ;P
You have to take the top off the washer a put it aside. You no longer need the top. Then you put the two angle brackets on the front top of the washer. this is where the front of the dryer will attach. The back of the washer either has or needs the brackets put on the top (been a long time since I did this). Remove the leveling legs from the dryer. Then lift the dryer and slide it on top of the washer with the back touching the top of the washer and the front about 2 inches higher than the washer top. The back of the dryer slides into the back brackets which are on the top back of the washer. Then lower the front of the dryer and the two "L" brackets on the front top of the washer slide through cracks into the dryer. Pop off the two plastic plugs on the dryer bottom front and place a screw in each one to hold the unit in place. Replace the plastic caps and you are done.
