Question about Amana NDE2335AY Electric Dryer
Unfortunately your motor is bad, which is most likely why the belt broke.
Try to turn the spindle on the motor by hand; It should turn freely. If it doesn't, it is frozen and needs replaced.
Replacing the motor is a bit involved, but since your in this deep....
You can order the replacement motor from www.searspartsdirect.com or call 1800-252-1698.
I can help you more if you give me the make and complete model number. Heres info on how to find it:
But...generically you can:
1. I'd take the drum completely out to give you room. Remove all wires connected to the motor, noting were they go. Usually there is one wire harness and a ground to remove. That's about it. 2. You'll notice there is a metal clamp that is slotted on one end and is snapped on the metal tab on the brace under the motor. Best way to get off is with flat-head pliers (regular pliers will work). Grab the end of the metal brace perpendicularly and bend down, using leverage to pop the clamp off the tab. It should pop free, releasing the motor 3. The other end of the motor should insert into the fan blower assembly. You'll have to release it from the back. 4. Take the back panel off then remove all the screws from the fan blower assy. 5. Once inside you will see the fan. It will be attached one of two ways: A. With a odd looking metal clamp of sorts that hooks on the motor spindle on both sides of the fan. There is a release bolt to loosen up. DO NOT REMOVE THIS BOLT ALL THE WAY. It is difficult to put back on. Once clamp is removed, pull fan off. B. The fan screws off, most likely in a counter clockwise direction. Easiest way to get fan loosened, believe it or not, is with a tire tool. A big socket will work. Pliers are not recommend because the fan is plastic and will chew up or wear down easily and become impossible to get off. Ideally, have some one else use vise grips on the other end of the motor, the spindle. It's locked up, but it may still spin as you try to remove the fan. If it is just use, hook the vise grips on tight and lodge them against the bottom or the side so they won't let the motor turn as you turn the fan. Once loose, remove fan. 6. Once fan is removed, the motor should be free. Put new motor in place and simply reverse these directions. Ideally, you would want to test the motor before you put EVERYTHING back together. Once the motor is secure and wired up, put the front of unit loosely in place and connect the door switch. Carefully plug in, standing clear of wires and motor. Start dryer. If motor runs, but it all back together. If it doesn't, there may be an interlock switch associated with the tension lever. Have someone hold the tension belt down until the switch makes and turn on. If it's just you, use your foot to hold down tension lever. If drier works, put everything back together.
I think this should solve your problem, but if it doesn't work, I can troubleshoot further with the make and model number.
Good luck. Let me know. If this helps you, please leave a testimonial for me. Thanks! G
