How do you access the blower wheel on a maytag stackable dryer. I have the LSG7800AAW, the housing is on the lower left but after removing the four hex screws the housing does not come off. Can anyone explain how to access the blower wheel.

    When you take the front panel off there is a front housing on the ower left that seems to be connected to the lint trap. I can't figure out how to get that part off.

Replacing pulley on Blower Housing


If there is no access panel on lower right side behind machine, you will have to lift the top of the machine from the front and remove the front panel to access the inside of the machine. While there it would be a good idea to check out the drum rollers if present and drum glides for wear. Also make sure that the blower wheel is not loose on the motor shaft. All of these will cause noise issues and are common.

Maytag Legacy series dryer making loud noise. Sounds like something flapping.


A common problem on these dryers is the blower wheel itself will wobble out and make noises. Pop the top with a putty knife then remove the front panel. Check the blower housing for looseness.or something in it. I worked on a monkey wards dryer with a bad blower wheel and made crappy movie on my phone:

I have a maytag heavy duty gas dryer model number LDG412 i need to know how to clean the vent all the way to the duct, the dryer is getting hot but it is taking a long time to dry clothes now, inside where...


Hello,
while cleaning the venting is never a bad idea and i recommend its done yearly,a common problem with older (the ldg 412 is from the mid 1980's) Maytag dryers isa stripped drive hub on the blower wheel and absolutly no air is being circulated throughout the dryer. A lot of times when starting the dryer and when it stops a rumbling noise will be made if the blower wheel is the problem. To check it if is the blower wheel you can remove the front panel by removing the screws that are a slight angle at the bottom of the front panel,tilt it out toward you at about a 45degree angle,then off. At that point remove the four 5/16" hexhead screws holding on the front drum support,lift it up slighly then off. The blower wheel will be in the lower left corner and you could spin it by your hand if it spins around the motor shaft it slips onto and does not move the drum while turning the blower wheel,it is stripped and needs to be replaced.To replace it remove the 1/4" hex head screws that hold the front plate to the plastic blower housing(7 screws) and the 5/16" hex head in the tab also in the plate in the front of blower housing the plate where come off. To replace blower wheel remove the greenish/black clamp from the center hub and the thin metal ring that fits ina groove on the motor shaft, a special c/e clip ring pliers are needs to remove the ring. A inexpensive pair could be picked up at most places that sell tools(ace hardware/lowes/home depot/sears) The part number for the blower wheel is 303836 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

I hope this will help you to repair your dryer,

Made a odd sound like a spoon in a garbage disposal then would not turn on.


Hi, thanks for using FixYa.com! I suspect there is something caught down in the blower wheel. To access, remove front panel by inserting a putty knife between the lower panel and upper panel about 2" in from each side. Depress clips and pull top of lower panel down, pull panel off and set aside. Remove lint filter and then remove the two 1/4" screws from each side of the metal filter housing. Remove housing to access blower wheel and remove any foreign objects, likely to be an underwire from a bra...most common!

How do you access the belt tension pulley wheel on a Kenmore Elite HE4 dryer?


First, unplug the dryer. Live voltages are still present inside the unit even with the dryer turned off. Then, follow these steps:

1. Remove the lower panel under the door. The screws are located under the bottom edge. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then slide off.
2. Open the door and remove the lint screen. Close the door. (The reason for this is because you cannot remove the blower fan housing with the lint screen in place.)
3. Remove the blower fan housing. There should be three to four screws with a retaining clip on the bottom holding it in place. Loosen all the screws. With the screws removed, pull the housing towards you from the top first, while releasing the retaining clip. The whole unit should come out. NOTE: Some blower fan housings have a ground wire attached. Make sure you disconnect the wire if this is the case.
4. With the blower fan housing removed, you should have full access to the belt tension pulley on the right hand side next to the heating element.

Is there a reason why you need access to the belt tension pulley? If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope this helps you.
