Got a blower wheel 31001043 for my dryer. The serial number is 10562193sf so I thought it would fit. However when I go to slide it on it will not move unless forced. Is this supposed to happen?
Answer Hello John,
If you make sure that it is lined up with the flat spot on the motor shaft and you are still having trouble pushing it on. You may want to take a little silicone grease and put light coat on shaft to help slide it on.
Need blower wheel. It shows two different wheels. Which is the right one for my dryer?
Answer Hello Dave, the reason two are listed is because Maytag had a change during production, so you will need to check your serial number to determine which one is correct for your model. If your serial number starts with "10" you need to order part# 31001043. If it starts with "11" you need part# 31001317. Hope this helps!
How do you get blower off shaft. Have taken clamp off but blower wheel will
not come off. Which blower wheel does this model take?
Answer Hello Elliott. Based on the model and serial number you provided, 31001043 is the correct blower wheel. Once the clamp is removed, the blower whell pulls off the motor shaft. Hope this helps.
To remove blower fan from motor shaft I have no clip. The replacement motor #279827 dose not have a flat spot but a round shaft with threads. Dose not separate by trying to unscrew. Broke pully trying.
Answer Hello Jerry. The blower wheel this question is under pulls off the shaft. The blower wheel 694089 for your model number, does unscrew from the dryer motor shaft. However, they are very hard to unscrew and remove. The easiest way to remove them is to use a chisel and bust them off and replace the wheel. However, if you use a large crescent wrench and a large pair of channel locks to hold the motor shaft, they will unscrew. Hope this helps.
How do you remove blower fan from motor shaft to change motor?
Answer Hello Jerry. Remove the clip from the blower wheel 31001043 and the blower wheel pulls off the shaft of the motor. There is a flat spot on the motor shaft that lines up with the flat spot on the blower wheel for reassembly. Hope this helps.
