Agrevatin ain't it. I bet you are talking about a whirlpool dryer. The rest of them ain't hard to get off. The blower has a squre nut on the back of it, hold that with a wrench and the pulley with a good pair of vice grips. The blower threads are backwards. Righty tighty is righty loosey. On tough birds I do this: I lock down the pulley inside the dryer with vice grips. I go around to the backside and insert a hammer handle in between to fins at the 3 o'clock position and slam downward. Get mean with it I mean. Works for me!!!
