If is a condenser dryer, then it has 2 fans, one on the inside of the
dryer on the motor, the other is located on the other end of the motor behind the heater cover panel, at the rear of the m/c.
The outer one is easy to replace, it is usually helds on with a corbin clip.
If it is the internal one, then it is a complete strip down to get to it, not recommended unless you feel competent enough to do it.

The motor doesn't start; just hums.


I would have to agree that the motor is the problem, but before you replace it, check the bearing and blower fan to make sure they are in good shape. If the bearing is bad or the fan is blocked it could give you the same indication.

Please check the belt connecting the motor and drum. It could be loose or worn out. Also clean the belt with water. Check the couplings and ensure that they are not loose or worn out.

The dryer hose fills with water, the lint trap never catches anything and the roof of the dryer gets hot but the clothes wont get dry. Any ideas? Thx


It sounds like you have no fan blowing. OR the vent is completely blocked so no air flow.

You could check fan by disconnecting the vent hose in back, and turn dryer on. Is is blowing a good volume of air? If so then you need to look at the vent. Any critter build a home in there? etc..

If there is no significant air blowing from the vent, you'll need to figure out why the fan is not blowing.
It's possible the fan is turning but is choked up and unable to move the air.
Perhaps the fan is bad, or there is a capacitor gone bad,.
That's as far as I can go from here.
Others may assist you further..

Fan is making a loud noise by the ice maker. Sounds like it is rubing against something. It turns off when you open either door.


the fans normally stop when you open door fan probably has ice or frost in cover area remove food from area and check cover make sure not cracked and pushing in on fan also check and see that fan doesnt have plastic or foil stuck in it if ice dont have to defrost whole system clear food away and use a hair dryer on high directed on fan housing after a few min 8-10 check fan to see if ice or frost is gone

If you don't hear the fan running then the fan motor has gone bad. If the fan motor is bad then most likely your element has burned out. If you hear the fan motor than probably your element has gone bad..

Lint trap


http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php This will show you how your dryer is put together. The lint has gone directly to the fan, where it could affect fan performance. You would have to remove the front off the dryer, and the cover off the fan area. It's not a bad idea to clean this area once in a while.
