My Repair & Advice
Removed a dead chipmunk from my blower wheel. I originally thought I had a motor problem and began to remove the motor, necessitating blower wheel removal. After having difficulty removing wheel (plastic nut strips easily, inset steel nut takes more force to free). Removing rear exhaust ducting to expose blower wheel, I discovered the unlucky chipmunk, wedged between several blower fins :( I broke the motor free of the wheel and determined the motor was undamaged. In doing so, I trashed the blower wheel, hence my order for a new wheel. Wheel arrived within a day, dryer was reassembled and has dried two loads since.
