Can I change a motor myself?

After reading all the "read here first " topics,I feel I can safely say the motor on my Maytag dryer is going.It's 5 years old,and came with the house.The warranty is no good.Can I install a new or bebuilt motor myself without fear of causing a meltdown in my house?

Changing the motor is not rocket science. Make sure you unplug the dryer. Then, just pay attention when you open up the dryer and remove the old motor. Use your digital camera or take notes if you think you might forget where something goes.

Watch out for sharp metal inside the dryer cabinet. Changing the motor is easy, doing it without drawing a bit of blood is the hard part.
