This comes with a metallic hub clamp to hold it firmly in place.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
This blower wheel clamp is less than an inch long and is used for some clothes dryers to hold the blower wheel firmly in place. This green clamp is made of metal.
At 100 inches in length, this dryer drum belt is 3/8 of an inch wide and has five ridges. This belt is all black in color and it is made entirely of rubber.
How to disassemble the dryer has been covered in past repair stories. I will add a make shift repair that will get you up and running until you get your replacement blower wheel. We repair gas dryers for a living and this repair works and some machines are still running for two years. Remove the blower wheel. Cut a piece of plumber strap of similar sized metal to about 3/16" x 1/2". Hold it with vise grips and then heat it with a torch. When it is hot melt it into the hole in the blower wheel. This will give you a flat spot in the shaft hole that will keep the blower from spinning on the motor shaft. Some trial and error fitting is involved. If you do it carefully the blower wheel will fit very nicely and will not vibrate or make noise.

I observed that the top of the dryer was affixed by two screws at each front corner. With these removed the top of the dryer could be easily lifted and with the front support panel removed the drum, drive motor and idler pulley could be accessed. This allowed the installation of a new drum belt in a short period of time. Installing the belt from the front lower left hand side proved very difficult for me but with the top raised and coming in from the top it was accomplished in short order. Thank you, Wesley Harmon
Problem was the blower wheel, (Plastic deteriorated). Replaced the tumbler and motor belt as well as th idler pulley. While the blower wheel turned out to be the problem, the other parts were significantly deteriorated. Since I had the dryer disassembled it made sense to replace the other parts. The 24 year old dryer runs like new. The parts select instructional videos were extremely helpful.
There were two screws to remove the front of the dryer. Then 4 screws to remove the front drum support. Remove the drum. Then one nut each on changing the back drum support rollers. Assemble the drum and front support in reverse, and door front, don't forget to put the new drive belt ovre the drum. Then from the rear panel opening, one screw to change the idler assembly. Easy
Removed front cover, removed housing cover, took old fan off, installed new fan, put covers back on.Your instructional video was very helpful. He told which screws to remove to get the covers off. I was unsure about how access the fan until I watched. Well done!
I took the access panel off the back, realized that belt was in very bad shape. Ordered a belt when I got that changed I put it back together and it still had a clunking noise. Found out that the blower wheel was rounded off where it goes over the shaft. So to change that I took the two front screws off, then the four hex screws off of the tumbler guide. There were eight or so screws over the blower wheel, took those out and the clamp on the blower wheel then used the snap ring pliers for the snap ring, then changed the wheel. Problem solved. This website is very helpful I would not have attempted to fix my dryer without this website.
First remove 2 screws on bottom of front panel,pull panel out from bottom to remove. Then remove 4 screws,2 on each side to remove tub support. Then remove approx. 6 Screws on fan access cover to expose fan. Then remove snap ring and clamp on fan hub. Pull fan off and push new fan on and reverse procedure.
My husband took off the front panel and noticed that the center of the wheel was melted. We went on to this website and confirmed the noise with other customers. We ordered the part - received it in 1 day and the dryer was repaired and back together within a 1/2 hr. Part was as is - istructions excellent.
I removed the two screws and removed the front panel, next I removed the fan cover that also directs the air movement into the drying tub. I then removed the external snap ring that held the fan in place on the shaft. The fan very easily slid right off of the shaft. It was reassembled in the opposite order. A very easy procedure. The entire procedure was not more than one hour.
Removed two screws on bottom of front panel. Lifted bottom of front panel, it then it dropped down and was moved to the left side. Removed 4 socket screws and removed drum front cover. Replaced felt strip, removed belt and replaced. Replaced two idler pulleys in back. Removed blower housing front cover, removed blower wheel and replaced. Installed front drum glides after drilling out rivets from the old glides. Vacuumed entire inside thoroughly and reassembled.
Removed (2) screws at bottom of dryer. Removed about 5 screws on blower housing. Used pliers to remove clamp and replaced the blower. Installed everything in reverse. I looked at what others did before me and it made it easy.
I followed the instructions given by other DIYs. The rubber band for the belt was a great suggestion, however having no rubber band nearby, I used a zip-tie that worked out perfectly.The only tool that I wished I had is a pair of split ring pliers. Not having a pair, used a pair of needle nose and a very small screw driver to provide the leverage to remove the washer.After following the instructions that came with the belt on how to properly align it to the motor wheel and tension wheel, I plugged everything back in and started it up. Sounded like it was brand new.I decided not to replace the rollers or drum guides as they looked to be in good shape.
Found the answer online, ordered the blower from here. I used a pair of scissors in place of a snap ring pliers. Otherwise went smoothly.
took off front of dryer then front of drum supports then took the blower fan off and replaced it. pulled the drum out replaced the shafts and rollers put it back together was not a very hard job.
