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.
Can't break the plastic fan loose off the motor shaft. I tried what it said by turning the motor shaft clockwise while holding the impeller. Doesn't seem to work, any ideals?
Answer Hi Howie. The blower wheel is part # 694089. As the old saying goes "use a bigger hammer" you can get a 12" long chisel and careful split the wheel in half from the center out. Be care full as to not even get close to the motor shaft. Then hold the belt pulley end of the motor shaft tight as you re-thread the new blower wheel on. Thank you.
How do you get to the belt on the drum?
Answer Hello Sam. Disconnect the power to the dryer. Remove the screws under the lint filter. Then release the clips under the front corners of the cabinet, and raise the top of the dryer. Unplug the door switch, and remove the screws holding the front panel on the dryer. Pull the front panel forward, and lift the front panel off the dryer. You can now access the belt for replacement. Reinstall in reverse order. Hope this helps.
Burner comes on, but drum does not turn.
Answer Hello Sam. You will need to check and see if the belt 341241 is broken. If so, you will need to replace the belt. Hope this helps.
How does the blower wheel unscrew from the motor?
Answer Hello Mike. This part can be rather difficult to remove. It can be rather tight on the shaft. You would need to find a way to stabilize the motor shaft and with enough twisting, you should be able to unscrew the blower wheel. I hope this info helps.
