0. Opened packaged and receipt verified the parts against the drawing and packing slip. 1. Disconnected dryer from power source by pulling the plug.2. Removed the two screws (philips) on left and right side of the main frame to allow access to the blower assembly.3. (Optional)Verified power dead at the circuitry near the blower wheel assembly (former navy electrician- "check it dead").4. Removed the two screws at the base of the wheel cover using the screw driver (philips). The other screws on the assembly cover required the use of a 1/4" nut driver.5. Opened the assembly, and with a flathead, pried the Retaining Omega ring, and removed the damaged wheel (broken vanes and missing straight end of the center ring) and disposed.6. Inserted the new wheel on the shaft and was able to manually do it until about 3/4 of the way; to get it fully insert it, tap it with a mallet (tap the center of the wheel and avoid the blades). 7. Insert the retaining ring and operationally test it by manually rotating the tumbler and verifying the blower wheel moves freely and without noises.8. (Optional) Vacuumed the lint and dust from the wheel assembly, the filter and exhaust line (found several broken pieces of vanes there). Inspected heater assembly for obvious signs of damage9. Re-installed the assembly cover and the main cover back to the frame10. Reconnected the plug to outlet and tested by a starting a 10 minutes cycle- no noise and constant flow of air.11. Smoked a Motecristo Churchill as I grilled the steaks and pondered the greatness of the free market.,
Lifted the top, then removed two screws holding on front panel, then removed cover holding this part in place, then used retaing ring plyers to remove the ring, then plyers to remove wheel clamp, took off the blower wheel. After that did everything in reverse to put it back together. And now the dryer is quite.
