The dryer motor that spins the drum is the same that drives the blower so being that it spins we know the motor is good.The only thing it can be is a blower wheel issue. I have seen these where the wheel was cracked where it fits onto the motor shaft (they are plastic )and I suspect thats whats happening here the part is about $25.00 and is not that hard to replace but please make sure you UNPLUG THE DRYER pefore doing any repair Good Luck

The blower inside. Is it a certain way the srcew have to go on the shaft so that the blow wont spin on the shaft?

Hi, most residential blower motors have a 6"x 1/2 in diameter shaft. Most shafts are round but also have flat area's down either 1 or 2 sides from tip to motor face. They come 6" Long so if you need to, you can cut with a hack saw if it is to long. These flat spots are for the set screws or bolts to tighten down on the shaft to prevent the blower wheel from spinning on the shaft. I have seen on rare occasion a motor with a round shaft only. They have allen head screws that are pointed which are supposed to dig into the shaft as they are tightened. If you have this type, make sure you really torque them down. On the other with the 2 flat area's on the shaft, just spin the wheel or motor shaft to the bolt, center wheel so it doesn't rub, and tighten down good.It will not move. I have replaced hundreds over the years believe me! I hope this has been of help to you. If you have allen head screws, it takes a Long hex wrench that fits tight and you may have to use something to slip over the end for more leverage but try not to break the tool. Please let me know if you need more help.This will solve you're problem.Best of Luck and happy Holidays to you and family. Sincerely,

My duet dryer makes a loud noise when i push statr and doesnt turn...

What does the noise sound like? Is it a humming noise? Might be your motor. before we assume that, Take the bottom panel off and the blower wheel housing should be there. Take off the srcrews that hold it in and make sure there is nothing in there blocking it from turning. follow the filter chute down. The part you put the screen into. make sure nothing fell in there and is blocking the blower wheel from turning because the motor shaft is screwed into the back of the blower wheel. The motor is what spinns the blower wheel and if something is blocking the blower wheel then the motor wont operate and your drum wont spin. try checking tha out.

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.

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 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!

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.
