ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS

You will have to remove the drum to try to repair the fin

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch. Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer. This will expose the drum and belt. Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm pulley and motor.
You can now check the drum to see how the fin is attached, but also
now is a good time to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots, if they have flat spots on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots on them then they probably only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade of machine oil such as 3 in One oil. Reassemble the dryer, plug back in.
I will include these two websites for parts and further help:

Both also have chat assistance 24/7.
Good Luck,
I hope this helps

Sounds like you need to replace your electrical breaker in the main control box of the house that feeds the dryer. You should get 120volt on each leg coming into the dryer. Good Luck, I hope this helps Please rate me, Thanks

The wheel has left handed threads. Use an impact wrench and an adjustable wrench to get it off or get a vice grips or pipe wrncha nd lock down the shaft then get a stick of wood or a hammer handle and shove it in between two fins at the 3 oclock position. Slam downwards on the wheel and it should pop loose.
