broken drum belt

Shut off power. Opened the top, removed 2 screws one on each side of front door. Opened clip and removed switch and unplugged wire. Removed front door by lifting it up off bottom clips. Removed the drum and checked the drum support wheels, idler and motor pulley. Shop vacuumed everything to get all the lint, dirt and spider webs out. I was lucky, my idler has a spring, so I cut a small piece of wood and put it between the exhaust pipe and the idler to keep it out of the way. I replaced the drum, slipped the belt over the drum and centered it over the pulley (old belt mark on the drum). I reached under the right side and put the belt around the motor pulley and carefully removed the wood holding the idler, turned the drum by hand to check it. Set the front door back in place, plugged the wire back in, put the switch back in the clip, put the 2 screws back in, turned the drum by hand again. OK! Turned power back on and started the dryer. Total new belt installation time was under 10 minutes.

I had to spin drum for dryer to start, bad start winding on motor, not sure if the problem could have been fixed by replacing the motor contactor. I could not find a part # for just the contactor.

You have to disassemble the dryer. I looked up how to on youtube.com. I am grateful that people take the time to record the steps in which to do just about anything. Disassembled and ordered motor and fan, damaged fan taking it off, got it in in just a couple of days, installed motor, fan and drum, tested before complete assembly. Works great. Thanks

Broken Blower Wheel

  • Customer: James from Mosca, CO

  • Time to Complete: 1- 2 hours
  • Tools Required: Pliers, Screw drivers, Wrench (Adjustable)

Remove the back panel, then remove the housing around the blower, just slide the housing of to the side, you don't have to take it completly of the machine. Remove the top, and remove the front until you can get to the blower motor. Cut the blower wheel plastic down to the metal nut with a fine blade in a recipricating saw, used a bi-directional broken stud remover socket on the nut that was at the center of the blower wheel and large slip joint plyer on the other end of the shaft. Replace the wheel and put back together. It took about as much time to gather up the tools as it did to fix it.,

Dryer would not run

Motor was tight, very hard to turn by hand. take the back motor mount strap off and you will be able to put an adjustable wrench on the shaft of the blower. you should be able to put vice grips on the pulley end and turn motor counter clock wise (CCW) to let handle of vice grips rest against the bottom of the machine and turn adjustable wrench CCW to turn off blower wheel. However, the one I did, the wheel was so tight I ended up having to break the blower wheel down small enough so I could pull the motor out. remove the front motor mount strap and pull the motor out. Install the new motor wheel and motor in the revers order. Set motor in place, install front motor mount strap, put blower wheel in from the back of the machine and start treading on the motor shaft. Then,from the front, tighten the blower with wrenches turning clock wise and put machine back together. Always unplug machine whenever working on it. If you go to Whirlpool web site there is a step by step video that will walk you through this entire process.

Once I watched a YouTube video showing me how to do the job I ordered the part from you. Am so impressed with your fast shipping and best prices via the Internet. Thank you SO much! The water level switch was easy to install, it ws getting the cover on the washer back on that was hard for me since I am 68 yrs old and have a bad knee. Its why it took me two hours to do what most people could do in 20 minutes.
