Where is the air intake on an electric cloth dryer


This link is to a video about cleaning a blower box lint trap housing of a Whirlpool , Frigidaire or Kenmore dryer..
There is a good view of the back of this dryer. Other than the controls and trim all of these models and makes are nearly identical.
As viewed from the back the air intake is at the lower right. The air enters the bottom of the heater flows through the heater coils into the dryer drum out of the dryer drum into the lint filter blower box into the blower and is expelled out into the dryer vent pipe.
There are other makes that may be different. On some LG dryers the blower is located at the front bottom left of the machine.
There are lots of help videos on youtube.

I can not locate model or serial on duo theme by dometic air conditioner. Located electrical serial no e9196051 inside but cannot find AC info. Pls help


If it's a 'ducted' installation you will need to drop the filter, usually 6 screws. Then you will see the air intake area sealed off from the rest of the unit. Looking to the rear of the RV the intake will have some sort of baffle that may even have the aluminum duct tape helping to seal the intake from the ducted output. My Model & SN were located on a tag on the AC unit behind that baffle. Mine was totally covered and without removing the tape and baffle I would never have found it. Good luck---

Heats with front panel off, but not with front panel on


3b524099-f5e5-4a68-9cbb-7c75f853808e.pngAir Flow issue sounds like. Is there go air flow at the rear of unit? Maytags of this style usually wear out blower wheels which moves the air through the unit, check the blower wheel see if you can move it without turning the drum, This is of course with the front panel off, The blower wheel is item #4 in the diagram and it's locate just behind the front panel.

My dryer does not heat. Clothes do not dry.


Pull the dryer out away from the wall. Unhook the vent from the dryer completely. Do not put anything over the dryer exhaust on the back of the dryer. Do a normal load with the vent unhooked. If it dries better or ok like this then the problem is in the dryer venting. Like a blocked vent pipe or a smashed or restricted vent hose. If the vent doesn't make a difference, then check the blower wheel for excessive lint build up, check that there isn't anything stuck to the air intake baffle inside the drum, (i.e. the screen on the back wall of the dryer when looking into the drum). Check the lint filter chute for blockage. Check that the heating element isn't shorted to ground. Check the exhaust temperature of the dryer. A meat or pocket thermometer can be used for this. It should cycle approx between 120 degrees and 160 degrees ( without clothes ). Check that the drum seals are not worn out.

There does not appear to be air blowing from the dryer to the outside. I think the air duct is clear.


A common problem associated with these dryers is the blower wheel getting stripped out and slipping.

How easy or much time it take to change a front blower fan on a 2001 grand caravan and can it be done at home?


It is easy and takes about 1-hour to change out.
However, before rushing to the conclusion that the Blower Motor is bad....
1. Does the Blower work on High (or #4) only? If so then it is not the Motor it is the Resistor which is located behind the Glove box, mounted onto/into the Fire Wall. Follow step #a. below and take out the Glove Box to access. It measures approximately 3 1/2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches high, and has 3 to 4 wires going into it.
2. Have you already checked and/or replaced the Front Blower Motor Relay located in the Fuse and Relay Center. If not you should do this first before anything. However if the Blower does only work on High then this Relay is good and you should only replace the Resistor Only.
I am very convinced that it is either the Relay the Resistor as these fail far more times than the Motor.
a. Disconnect the Negative Cable from the Battery and wait at least two (2) minutes to deactivate the Airbag Sensors.
b. Remove the Glove Box.
c. Disconnect the Electrical Connection.
d. Remove the two (2) screws holding the Air Housing to Lower Air Intake Housing.
e. Remove the two (2) screws holding the Recirculation Door Actuator.
f. Disconnect the wire harness from the clips holding them onto the Lower Intake Housing.
g. Remove the three (3) screws holding the Lower Air Intake Housing to the Lower half of the Evaporator Housing.
h. Push the rubber grommet of the blower motor wires throught the hole in the Lower Air Intake Housing.
i. Remove the Lower Air Intake Housing from the Evaporator Housing and Upper Air Intake Housing.
j. Manipulate the Recirculation Door to have access to the three (3) screws holding the Blower Motor to the Blower Housing in the bottom of the Evaporator Housing.
k. Gently bend the Recirculation Door so that you can remove the Blower Motor and Blower Wheel from the Blower Housing.
l. Remove the Blower Motor and Blower Wheel.
Some Blower Motors do not come with the Blower Wheel. Remove the retaining clip from the Shaft of the Blower Wheel and remove the Wheel off the Shaft.
Let me know if this helped, or if you have additional information or questions. Feel free to contact me at FixYa.com!

Whirlpool dryer drum making noise




window.google_render_ad();There are many places & parts that could be causing your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy. To find out what is causing the noises, you need to find out where are the noises coming from.
Start the dryer and let it run for a while and listen to try to pinpoint where in the dryer the noises is coming from. Once you have an idea of the area, you will need to disconnect the dryer from the wall outlet and take the dryer apart.
Below you will find the parts that you need to check when your dryer is noisy.
The drum baffles:

The drum baffles are use to tumble the clothes inside of the drum, in other words, the baffles job is to separate the pieces of laundry as the drum turns.
When the dryer is getting older and if you use the dryer a lot, the drum baffles holding screws will become loose. Loose drum baffles will cause noises. All you need to do, is to open the top panel and tighten the drum baffles holding screws.
The drum support rollers:

These dryers uses four drum support rollers, tow on the front and two on the rear. The job of the drum support rollers is to keep the drum tumbling smooth.
When the grease on one of the rollers dry out, the roller start to make squeaking noises and the roller bearing will start to wear out until the bearing on the roller is gone. When the bearing on the roller is gone, the noise will change from squeaking to a clanking noise.
The blower wheel:

The blower wheel is use to circulate the air inside of the dryer drum. The most common Whirlpool blower noises are cause by something falling inside of the blower housing and hitting the blower when the motor runs.
The Idler pulley:

The Idler pulley is use to apply the necessary tension on the belt. There are two types of idler pulleys, the pulley with the wheel and the pulley with the teflon slide. A bad idler pulley could cause a Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
The drive motor:

Worn out bearings on the motor will cause the motor to run kind of noisy. When the motor starts making noises, the solution to this problem is to replace the motor.
The belt:

The belt on most dryers is only about1/4 inch wide. These belts work very hard making the drum tumble. When the belt stretch just 1/2 inch more that it supposed to, the belt will start slipping and that could cause your Whirlpool dryer to be noisy.
As you could see, there are a lot of parts that could become noisy in your dryer. When your dryer starts making noises, make sure to check it out before it gets worse.
