Question about Dryers
I have a Frigidaire Dryer model FER341AC0 and just bought a new blower assembly for it. The blower assembly has a metal piece in the center that is half threaded. This will not fit onto my motor shaft properly. I ordered the blower assembly based off my dryer model number, so it should be the correct part. Why will the blower wheel not screw onto the shaft all the way? The shaft isn't even threaded. It appears that the metal piece is prevent the wheel from completely fitting onto the motor shaft, almost as if its not the correct part. But, I couldn't find another blower assembly for this particular model. What gives?

SOURCE: Can't remove dryer blower wheel
I would start by taking off the top and checking the belt to see if part of it tore and is hitting the inside of the cabinet. I have not found a real good way to get the blowers out without having to break them sometimes. the part of the blower that you have to hold is access through the front behind the motor. problem is when you turn the motor shaft, the wrench strips out on the blower, then you have to break them, but unless you need a new motor, it should not have to come off.

SOURCE: fitting tumble dryer drive belt
Looking from rear of dryer,one spring on motor is for tension,therefore put belt around drum(groove to the drum surface).Then rotate the motor firmly clockwise tensioning the spring,take belt from right of drum over tension wheel then put grooves of belt on shaft of motor.Release motor to tension spring,job done !!!!!

You don't have to remove the drum to get to the heating element. Remove the cover at the bottom of the dryer, it should be on the right at the bottom.
