My dryer heats up fine and the spins fine, without any noise. The problem is that the clothes don't dry, there doesn,t seem to be any or very little air blowing through the dryer. Is this problem just the blower wheel?
Answer Hello Brian. You will need to check and see if the blower wheel 56000 is stripped out on the unit. If so, replace the blower wheel. If not, It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked. You will need to check the vent and clean it out. Be sure and clean the vent pipe and the dryer air duct assembly. If the air flow is not good, the unit will retain moist air causing the clothes not to dry. Try running the unit with the vent unhooked from the back of the dryer and see if the dryer works properly. Hope this helps.
Every once in a while when I start dryer, drum does not turn. I open door and push on one of the fins inside drum to turn it. Close door and push start and it works fine. Any ideas on any parts I may have to change?
Answer Hi Cliff. Remove power. Check to see if the 240 vac supply is tight at the terminal block. If the terminal block is broken it is part # 61923. Most of the time, it is the dryer motor part # 2200376 that gives this response when it needs replaced. Thank You.
How do I remove the blower wheel if it's no longer tight on the motor? It's just rattling on the motor shaft?
Answer Hi Michael. The blower wheel is part # 56000 is accessible by removing the blower housing cover. You Can use a deep well socket to reach in from the front and also use an adjustable wrench to hold the back of the belt / pulley wheel while loosening the fan assy. Thank you.
