No the motor can not be lubricated.
the blower wheel can be removed by usin a socket on the front nut and a wrench on the flat spots of the motor shaft .
then remove the clips that hold the motor down and you should be able to remove the motor.
you also need to check the tension pulley and make sure it is not seized up.

My Frigidaire gallery dryer stopped working it will buzz when I turn the starter knob but never starts nor does the drum turn ,then I smell a burning smell


if you can hear the motor running then probably the belt is either too loose and/or broken (you may hear a rubbing or squeeling sound).....if you cant hear the motor running then it may be burned out....a very acidy smell.

Either problem requires taking the dryer apart to fix (new belt or new motor)

Maytag Neptune Dryer MDE3000AYW. Replaced pulley and arm (pulley was seized to it), rear drum wheels, front drum glides, belt. Cleaned throughly inside. Worked like a charm for about 6 loads. Went to hit...


I'm guessing that your belt my have been misaligned, which means, no problem!

But, I recently had a machine that had a motor that would not turn, only hummed. I vacuumed the lint, then blew the lint out of the motor with a compressor, and vacuumed again. It still needed a push start to get the motor turning, but it starts on its own, now. So, if you have a lot of lint buildup, it can eventually stop the motor

My frig. agq600fs gas dryer drum will not turn.


Good bet it's the motor!
Disconnect electric plug.
Have to get access to back of the dryer, remove a few screws.
Look at motor and belt, motors sometimes over heat - Burn Up.
Motor could be replaced, depending on the age and how long you have had it!

Dryer makes noise that sounds like tumbling glass and smells hot


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO DO ANY WORK ON IT.
Sounds like your problem may be a broken belt, or the belt may have slipped off of the motor pulley, or idler arm pulley.
If you have to replace your drum belt and if you have a front loading machine.
Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer. Be real careful not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the machine, this will expose the belt and drum, remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm bracket with pulley, and motor with pulley. Pay attention to the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt and drum.
Sometimes the belt will slip off of the idler arm or motor causing the drum not to turn.
While you have the drum out, I would recommend that you lubricate the drum rollers at the shaft of the roller with a good grade of machine oil like 3 in One oil. This will save you a problem later with the rollers getting noisy, also check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them this will cause a noise like a thumping type noise. You will need to replace the drum rollers if they have flat spots on them.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Dryer is 10 years old, electric, and this is the first problem with the unit. Dryer was working, when another load was put in, it started and then stopped. It would not start again? I could smell a burning...


try and turn the drum by hand at the same time you are trying to start the dryer if it runs then you have a problem with you motor it may be dirty with lint and needs to be cleaned or the start windings have gone bad and needs to be replaced

FRIGIDAIRE GLEQ2152ES0 DRYER DRUM WILL NOT TURN


You need to check the motor isn't bad which is possible. All of what you have stated is possible. You are going to have to check out each and every one until you find it. But all three can cause it.

soulds like the fuse in the unit overloaded, fluff or oter items may have fallen onto the element, or the unit was overloaded, and the belt was slipping on the motor drive pulley. check for rubber drive belt debri. replace damaged items as required.

Whirlpool Ultimate Care II - Gas Dryer - Drum Won't Spin


If you are handy with tools, try to remove the back panel and feel the belt that should surround the drum. If access is that limited, try to turn the dryer on its side and you can get to the motor from the bottom. But like the guy said before, call a pro if you can't do any of this.

it could be the motor capacitor. to check, turn on and carefully give the drum a push in the direction of rotation. if the drum picks up speed and goea ok, then the motor capacitor is faulty. cheap part
