Question about Whirlpool LGR6611L Gas Dryer

1 Answer

LGR6611LQ0 Thanks for your reply. Quick question: Can't I use an adjustable wrench and put it on the backside of the fan (which is square)... then turn the shaft... letting the wrench push against the flooring to the left (Facing from front) while turn shaft counter clockwise? I think what I really wanted to know is how it's connected... and you answered that... screwed on. I wasn't sure if it was pressed on and the end of the shaft was square.

    Thanks. I tried turning it and found it quite hard so I decided to stop and post the question. Wanted to make sure I didn't break the plastic and have to buy a new blower fan too. I'll let you know what happens when I try tomorrow afternoon. Thanks again.

    Ok... changed motor and nothing. Still wont start. The last tech that came in said it was the motor. Everything is hooked up correctly... maybe ON button? Man this stinks....

  • corvettece Jan 11, 2009

    Dryer would not start. The last cycle was completed... checked the dial... went to do next load, would not start. When pushing start button, I can hear it engage... when turned to off or unplugged, i can hear it disengage. Had a tech over yesterday, said bad motor and couldn't change it until Monday. Said no go, I'll change it myslef. That's where you came in. He checked each connection, got juice... that's where he decided it was the motor. No bad sounds came from it, went through a dryer a few years ago... could tell when going bad. So that's that. Last resort, buy a new one :(

Motor heats up and stops running how do remove

The blower fan on this model has reverse threads where it screws onto the motor shaft. At the small space between the motor and the rear wall of dryer you will see that the blower wheel has a square neck that will allow you to hold it stationary with a large crescent wrench. while holding the blower grip the pulley on the front of the motor with another wrench (or channel locks) and turn the motor shaft clockwise to break the blower loose. Sometimes a quick motion is better to free it as it may be on the motor threads pretty tight.
Good luck on this!

How to replace the blower on a DPGT750EC2PL

The way to remove/separate the spinner from the blower motor is that, if you'll notice, there's a flat notch on the back of the blower motor shaft. You have to put a crescent wrench or some sort of adjustable wrench on the backend of that shaft to keep it from spinning. Now, the other thing that you may not be aware of is that in order to remove the nut for the spinner/blower cage, you have to turn the wrong way. Yes, you heard me right, the opposite direction. I know we were taught, righty tighty, lefty loosey. Not in this case, the nut is removed in the opposite direction.

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
