My dryer is taking up to 3x longer to dry, could this be the blower wheel? It's getting hot and spinning but taking forever. It had stopped spinning about 2 weeks ago, I took it apart today and found that one of the pulleys had come off, I put it back and put the belt back on, but still taking at least 3 hours to dry.
Answer Hello Rayanne777. It sounds like the venting system is clogged or kinked or the blower wheel is bad. 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.
Hi. Our dryer is making huge noise and .....I found out part of blow wheel inside of venting tube. Do you think replace blow wheel would solve the problem? Thanks.
Answer JunI N, Yes you'd want to replace the blower wheel as soon as possible. The off center rotation will put a lot more stress on the motor and bearings and cause a premature failure. You'll also want to clear any debris that has accumulated in the housing and exhaust pipe.
There are two blower wheels listed for this model--ap2997251 and ap2910465. Other than the price, what is the difference between the two?
Answer David, our site only reflects one listed compatible blower wheel for the given model. According to the model number given the blower wheel listed for your appliance is part number 694089. Unfortunately, we do not have the specs available to determine the difference in the two inquired blower wheels. Thanks.
The dryer shuts down after gets too hot. The motor is only two years old. Could it be that the blower wheel is clogged with lint, causing the shutdown? The dryer is quiet when running.
It is very possible that the blower wheel could have lint built up on it which would cause the issue but also check the venting to the outside of your home as this can be a possible cause as well.
Does not blow hot air out the back, gets clothes hot and tumbles, just doesn't blow out the back. What could this be?
Answer Hello Jimmy. You will need to remove the front panel of the dryer and see if the pulley on the top of the blower wheel has come off. If so, replace the pulley and nut and use thread locker to install it.
