Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Sometimes the nut will freeze on the motor especially if the motor was overheating and shutting down on its overload. The only trick I have found to break the blower wheel loose as applying any type of rust buster or bolt bolt penetrator on the backside of the blower wheel. Let it sit for a few minutes and get a 1in drive socket with an extension on it and put it directly in the center of the blower wheel. (it has a 1in drive in the center) Then grab the motor pulley from the back with a wrench or channel locks and try to break it loose with swift jerks on the motor pulley while holding the blower wheel in place with the ratchet. You will want to put the motor clamps back on to help hold the motor in place. Remember it is a reverse thread.
Swift jerks usually work better to break it loose than just increasing pressure. (if you dont have a 1in drive anything you can fit into the blower wheel to hold it in place will work).
If you still have no luck at breaking it loose you can always take a flathead screwdriver and a hammer and chisel around the blower wheel and break it off. The only downfall to this method is you have to buy a new blower wheel Part# 697772 for about 40 bucks.
Hope this helped _MJ_
