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,

How do you get the motor off of a whirlpool dryer? We are trying to replace the bulkhead, but can't get the motor and blower separated


The blower will be held to the motor shaft by one or two allen set screws. Loosen these screws and the motor will pull out. the blower fan will drop down so make sure you can somehow hold it while you pull the motor away. Obviously unbolt the motor from the chasis.

Hope that helps.

My Maytag LDE8600ADM Electric Dryer is making a loud knocking sound when it startes up and continues slightly quieter, but none the less knocking, while running and then the same loud knocking as at the...


Hi, Start the dryer and listen down in the lower front corner for the noise. This sounds to me like it could be the blower wheel loose on the front motor shaft.
Remove the 2 screws in the front panel and then remove the 4 screws holding the front bulkhead to the cabinet. You will be able to see the blower wheel and try to spin it by hand. If the blower spins free on the shaft, it will need replaced.
I hope this is helpfull to you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Thanks

Motor replacement


there is a half in square drive recess in blower wheel insert half in drive into it ..usually a 7/16 open end wrench will hold motor shaft but if not use adjutable wrench to hold motor shaft at belt end turn blower clockwise ..if still can get loose use service tech method chisel and hammer ..if motor has overheated the heat will almost weld blower wheel to motor shaft ..by the way some parts houses may sell the switch as a separate part

you need to check the blower fan. the motor has a "D" shaped shaft. over time the blower wears, the motor will spin but the blower does not. the air flow stops and the drier over heats. replace the blower and it should be fine.

Blower moter fan


Before attempting to remove blower, run the motor and note the direction of rotation. The blower wheel can be very difficult to remove. It is screwed on to the motor shaft opposite to the motor rotation such that every time the motor starts, the blower wheel gets tighter. The best way to remove, is to put an adjustable wrench on the blower wheel (from the motor side) and using another wrench or locking pliers on the side of the motor shaft where the belt goes. Rotate the motor shaft where the belt goes, in the opposite direction of normal rotation while holding the wrench on the blower wheel. It will be VERY TIGHT. If unsuccessful, the only alternative is to strike the blower wheel REALLY hard and break it off. GOOD LUCK!

If you need further assistance, let me know

Drum drive/motor growling, also very brief repeated hesitation audible


Dale you are correct, the dryer has a part starting to fail. If you remove the top and shift the cabinet the noise may increase or decrease. If this happens, then the rear panel is bent in that supports the rear bushing. You can replace that to resolve this. If the noise doesn't change, I suggest you check the blower, Sometimes the blower will spin freely on the motor shaft and cause a noise. Since this blower wheel also cools the motor, it could be spinning. Try removing the blower and add a washer behind it to tighten it to the motor shaft. This is just a press fit blower wheel. If that doesn't resolve the issue, then replace the blower wheel. Hope this helps.
