Question about Dryers
Got it! O.K.
Unplug the dryer. Remove the two screws (Phillips) holding the door hinge to the frame. Remove the other two holding the guides on theother side. Pull the top of the front out and lift it off the clips on the bottom. Remove the brackets (5/16 in screws) (right and left) holding the top down. Notice the direction that those brackets hook into the top.
Lift the top at least a few inches and disconnect any wires you see (light and door switch.) Remember the colors of the wires, and where they go. (The connectors are also different sizes.)
Remove the four 5/16 in screws holding the ring around the basket in place. Remove the ring (with blower suction chamber) and set aside. The blower wheel will now be visible. The blower wheel is held on with a spring clip (pliers) and a snap ring (snap ring pliers). The motor shaft is D- shaped as the blower wheel also was, originally.
If you need to replace the blower wheel, the cover is held on with about eight 1/4 in screws and and one 5/16 in ***** at the bottom. Just fold the wires to the right to get that metal cover out of the way.
While you've got it apart, be sure to clean out the lint in the blower suction area.
