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 :(

I have a 2008 Kia Sorento LX 3.3. where is the adjuster bolt for the idler pulley? Trying to change serpentine belt and idler pulley.

The idler pulley deflects out of the way using a special wrench, the pulley is held against the belt only by a preset spring tension mechanism. You put the wrench on the bolt or in the square drive hole and deflect the pulley away from the belt, it must be manually held there to put the new belt on and then released to tension the new belt.

I am not sure how to remove the head and body screw from inside a binks model 7 spray is tight and dont want to break anything

remove bottom adjustment screw this is the fluid adj rod will be a long one, then you should have a special wrench that came with gun , there is a square surface behind the tapered head that seals to the fan cap put wrench on the square part and remove, being careful noy th burr up tapered surface on front of valve, then you can thourly clean out gun, make sure not to loose any seals during process, do not sand or use abrasive material on these parts, use lacquer thinner and brush,you do not want to bend or scrape these in any way shape or form, caues then your gun will not spray right when reassembled. good luck

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 do i get the fan shaft off so i can get the water pump out?

There is a tool for it but you can use a big wrench put it on the fan shaft nut with the belt still on so it holds the pullley, give the wrench a quick hit to the left with a hammer to break loose then spin off.
