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.

After removing te front panel you can see the blowe rwheel inside hte housing, probably 6 1/4 hex screws holding sheetmetal face on housing as well as to 5/6 hex screws holding motor down

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.

I have a stackable washer/dryer gas maytag. Purchased around 17 years ago. The dryer is not drying clothes. Gas is powered fine and it is heating up. The cycle seems shorter than normal

The problem with it not drying is most likely going to be a worn out blower wheel thats slipping and not moving the warm air through the clothes to dry them properly. Always a pretty good sign the blower is slipping is,if you hear a rumble noise from the dryer at start up and also that same rumbling noise when the power stops. So if you hear it at start up...wait 30 seconds and open the door and listen for the rumble noise as drum stops. also you can check where the vent exits the house and see if their is air flow when the dryer is running.

I think I have to replace the blower wheel in my dryer. Is it harder to get access to this part in this type of dryer (stackable vs. unstacked)? Is this something I should even try to do?

Why do you think you need to replace the blower wheel assembly? If it is not drying completely make sure the ducting is clean and free from obstructions. If the dryer is not getting hot you may need to check the three thermostats or the gas valve and igniter. You can order parts from, which are in stock. If one of the thermostats are defective the dryer will not heat up. You need to use an ohm meter and a heat gun to test the thermostats. If the thermostats are good see if the igniter has voltage to it and is sparking. If it does you need to make sure the gas valve is functioning.

The advantage of the stackable unit is the compact size and lower total cost. The disadvantage is the small tub and drum limiting the size of loads you can run. I also think the larger units do a better job of cleaning if you have the space and funds.

Can you repair it yourself? If you have the knowledge of how to use a Volt/Ohm Meter and some mechanical skills, I think you can repair it yourself. Keep in mind you need to fix the cause of the problem before you fix the problem, or you will have the same failure again (make sure you have good air flow in your ducting). Most appliance parts stores will not take back electronic parts once you have opened or installed them. Therefore, you need to identify the part is defective before replacing it. Some appliance parts stores will test the part for you.

I have lse7806ace (stackable) and problem with water leak. I live in condo and this washer/dryer stackable in small closet. I can't reach locking tabs. This stackable is also on the pan (bottom). 'BTW,...

Remove the 2 screws which hold the lower front washer panel , lift out from the bottom and remove the panel.You can now run the machine and use a flashlight to see where the leak maybe. Usually the top tub seal under the plastic tub cover will leak. The other possibility is the main tub bearing and seal on the main tub where the transmission goes up through tub. Hope this helps.

Maytag LSG7800AAW Dryer not working

Its Either One Of Two Problems If Its Electric Its The Thermostat but if its gas it can be either the thermostat or the igniter. If its gas you can watch the igniter or listen to hear if its lighting. If it lights its the thermostat cause if the thermostat is malfunctioning it will turn the gas off when it doesn't detect the flame. It turns the gas off to prevent your home from filling with gas. Hope this helps.
