Question about Dryers

1 Answer

I have a broken blower blade I want to remove from Kenmore dryer.

I have a Kenmore 600 electric dryer. The blower blade is broken. I would like to remove it from it's housing if possible. It is larger than the opening. I have not yet detached it from the motor. There are 3-4 nuts attaching the housing to the frame, but how can you access them with the blade on?

You cannot remove the blower intact with the motor. The motor has to be accessed from the front the motor shaft has to be held still with vise grips and then the blower has to be twisted off. This repair is trickey and should be done by a service tech.

Electric dryer, vent is clear, no air coming out vent line.

You most likely have a broken blower fan wheel. The hub sometimes will crack on the blower wheel and it will either not turn or turn very slowly on the motor shaft. I used model 110.6808600 as a reference since you did not include your model number:
See this link: (Item 10) $19.12 part!

Have a kenmore electic dryer just changed out the heating element about 2 months ago dryer is not heating up properly taking 2 times to dry a load of clothes

check for a blockage in the evacuation hose (four inch tubing)
also, check to make sure the blower blades are turning (they can wear out and slip on the motor shaft). assuming the new element is still good, it is probably a blocking of air flow which will inhibit drying properly. or the blower fan blades are broken or worn. good luck. jay

Heating element and blower work but clothes still damp

Sounds like it's operating on only one leg of the 220v. Reset breaker and try. I think you will find that this is all thats wrong.

Dryer is hot, clothes arnt getting dry. blower? less that 1 year old Kenmore

Remove the vent hose from the dryer and dry a load of clothes . If they dry , then dryer is pushed too far back , kinking vent hose , or the vent from the dryer to the outside is blocked somewhere . A dryer either heats or doesn't heat (except for maytag associated dryers ) in which the blower wheel could be stripped out . But Kenmores don't have blower problems .

Trying to access the blower fan on a Kenmore 80

Remove the rear panel.
Then remove the screws that secure the blower fan vent on the left side to access the blower wheel.

Remove blower wheel

Put a good fittting wrench on the blower nut and hit it with an impact wrench(left handed threads righty lucy). OR do it the tried and true redneck way get a friend to hold a pipe wrench on the pulley inside the dryer, around the back slide a small hammer handle or piece of wood in between two blower blades at 3 o'clock position and slam downwards to pop that mutha loose. The threads are left handed(backwards). That blower does not wanna go easy.
