My Dryer is making a high pitch crackling noise
You will want to check the blower wheel to make sure that it is not damaged and that there is nothing caught in it that would cause the noise that is occurring.
Will the blower wheel make your dryer run really loud?
Answer Yes Clifford, the blower wheel can make a loud rattling noise when it has failed or is failing. You may also experience poor air flow and the dryer could get too hot and trip the thermal fuse or high limit thermostat. If you could re-post and provide your complete model number, we can confirm which blower wheel is correct for your model. Thanks!
How to replace Assembly, Blower Fan? If blower wheel is loose can it cause the loss of ignition flame lasts only 10 sec. and it stops.
Answer Hello Naim,
A loose blower wheel could cause a loss of ignition but would be more likey a clogged vent system or bad gas coils. You can test coils and should have 1220 ohms plus or minus 50. On the 3 terminal coil you should have between 1 and 2 1365 plus or minus 25 and between 1 and 3 560 plus or minus 25.
I noticed that the blower drum is loose, there is a nylon nut in the front. Is this broken or need to be tightened ?
Answer Ricky, The "nylon nut" on the front of the blower wheel, is actually part of the wheel, and is used for tightenning the blower wheel onto the motor shaft. It has reversed threads and is designed to tighten as the motor turns. If the blower wheel is loose on the motor shaft, you'll need to replace the blower wheel. " Hold motor pulley securely and unthread impeller from motor shaft (right hand thread). Use a 7/8 inch,
6 point socket to aid in the removal of the impeller."
I have tried using 7/8 socket to remove the blower fan while holding the motor pully, it is now starting the strip the plastic on the blower fan. What should I try now?
Answer Hi Theresa. It may be time now to sacrifice the blower part # 56000 and replace it. I have carefully used a cold chisel and split the blower plastic wheel in half so then you can use vise-grips to remove the rest. Thank You.

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.
