The motor is reached from the front you have to take your 2 screws out where your filter is on top then you have to pull the top foward and up then there is 2 screws on the front panel inside then you can take it off then reach under drum and remove belt from motor and remove drum then there is access to your motor

    put a wrench on the pulley where the belt is then go to the back and take the 4 screws out of the filter housing at the bottom and then you might be able to turn it if not most of the time you have to bust it off and get a new fan blade

Kenmore dryer 70 series


Check the vent for clogs and kinks. Could be something in the blower wheel causing the noise and blocking the vent.
Remove the vent from the back of the dryer, unplug the dryer, and reach inside the dryer vent to check for items lodged in the blower housing.

I have a ken series 90 has a lot of build up lint and i would like to know easiest way to get to the inside to clean out thanks


In the trap itself there is a flexible brush you can buy and reach in. As for the vent pipe you will have to remove and clean and replace it once cleaned.

My dryer stopped working. I can hear the timer, but it doesn't start


Sounds like a blown thermal fuse problem which is caused by blocked lint duct and vent or a faulty cycling thermostat. The exhaust air temperature rises when there's a blockage in the duct/vent or when the cycling thermostat fails to cycle off properly. The thermal fuse blows when the temperature reaches the fuse rating and terminates power to the motor. The dryer will not start and no dryer function works.

Problem for Frigidaire FSE748GF Dryer Brown marks on clothes - What could the problem be and how do you fix it.


If the clothes have a 'burned' smell, likely, the air flow through the machine is restricted and getting too hot. Vacuum out the exhaust hose and the outside vent of lint. Reach inside the machine's air outlet pipe and vacuum all that you can reach. Remove the lint filter and wash it in hot water and detergent to remove fabric softener deposits. Vacuum below the lint filter opening as far as you can reach and inside the door cavity (be careful of sharp edges!). Hope this helps!

My kenmore dryer heat element goes on and off. The clothes take hours to dry.


It seems to run forever If your dryer seems to run forever, it could be because of a clogged vent or internal ductwork. Your dryer may have an automatic cycle that turns off the dryer when the clothes are dry. It does this with a special thermostat or moisture-sensing system. Normally, this is what happens during an automatic cycle: The thermostat tells the dryer to heat until the interior of the dryer reaches a pre-set temperature--say 135 degrees. When the dryer reaches the pre-set temperature, the thermostat tells the timer to begin advancing. (If there's a moisture sensor, the timer advances only if the moisture content of the clothing is low enough.) The timer advances until the interior cools, then the thermostat tells the timer to stop advancing, and tells the dryer to start heating again. This cycle continues until the clothes are dry. But…if the vent is clogged, the dryer may never reach the proper operating temperature, so it doesn't send the signal to the timer and the dryer continues to run indefinitely, even if the clothes are completely dry. To fix the problem, clean the vent and/or internal ductwork.

Where is the dryer vent located?


most vents are standard size an in the worst case you can find a flexible duct to reach out to where you need to go!

If still heating, clean out vent and check for kinks. Also, REMOVE PLUG FIRST!! Remove back and remove four screw holding filter duct assembly at bottom left. Pull duct toward rear and reach into bottom of duct and remove lint. Also, wash out filter screen.
