How often should the blower wheel be replaced? When the dyer is started, a wobble-knocking sound comes from the platic blower wheel housing. Could the blower wheel be slipping on the motor shaft? I removed the clamp and blower wheel, and cleaned off the lint (to balance the wheel), and it still knocks. Do you have any suggestions? Might the pressure fitting loose it's pressure?
BTW: I replaced the front felt glide (AP2150497) and belt (AP4565702), and the drum sounds great.
ANSWER Hello Buba. It sounds like the wheel is slipping, and you will need to replace it. Hope this helps.
