Blower stopped working
I expected to find a broken blower belt so purchased that belt and the others I planned to replace since the on line instructions indicated that I had to pull the drum to replace the blower belt. I did not, so didn't use most of the parts at all. The instructions that came with the parts, were only slightly helpful because they were for a far different model. Some youtube videos were more help. I had to pop the top, which is easy and explained in the instructions, remove the front panel, which only requires removing two 5/16" small bolts, then lifting it up and off. Simple. With that panel off, I could see the blower belt and it was intact and seemed to work fine. I could have replaced it easily with no further disassembly at that point. However, since it was not blowing the air out of the dryer, I knew there was another problem. So I removed the front of the blower housing, which is four, 1/4" small bolts and it just pulls off. I could then see that the entire front of the blower was packed with lint that had gotten past the normal lint filter. I cleared that all out and checked that the blower itself was intact and clean and there were no other obstructions. When I rotated the blower by turning the motor, it moved easily. So I put it all back together without changing any parts and tested it. It worked perfectly again. I kept the parts for the next time I might need them.

Blower belt came loose, but didn't snap. It was old and perhaps brittle.
First, lift top by pushing in the 2 locking clips ( with the dryer door open), otherwise it won't lift.
Secondly, remove front cover by taking out 2 screws easily seen . If you see any electrical connectors, remove them.
Only thing a bit nightmarish was installing the new belt. It didn't seem long enough even though it was the original exact replacement. I got hair dryer blower, used on belt for 30 seconds, and mission accomplished.

The drum is functioning. The dryer is too hot. "af" signal is on panel. All lint filters and screens are clean. No air is flowing from back of machine.
For model number WED7300XW0
PartSelect logo
Hi Jay, Thank you for your question. The AF error code means restricted air flow. The lint screen or vent is clogged; the vent may be crushed, kinked or have too many turns. If all of your ventilation parts are fine, your problem may be with your control board. You may have to check that part. Good luck with your repair.
