Blower Motor not working

The Blower Motor on my Dryer isn't working at all. When I turn on the dryer, there isn't any air coming out of the exhause vent. The vents have all been thoroughly cleaned. How can I tell if the motor is bad or the control board?

    This dryer has a separate Blower Motor and it is a 3 phase motor. It is located in the front of the dryer on the left behind the front cover. I have measured the voltage coming from the Power board and the voltage intermittantly comes on and off. It is only on for about a second then turns back off. I don't think the blower turns at all but it moves very easly when I turn it. Any other ideas???

This is not a board issue.It sounds like the blower is either broken or fell off the motor.Remember your dryer has 1 motor.On one side is where the belt is attached,and on the other side your blower is attached.

    I wasn't aware that you have the GE DPGT750EC Dryer .The control board is where this problem is.

    these dryers have problems with the blower wheel motor,i don't think you have a problem with the board.

Hello there and welcome to Fixya :
This is a fairly common problem with these whirpool dryers.
I will provide you with the 7 most common things to look for
which contribute to the symptom Dryer won't stop are listed below. Check or test each item and watch any available videos. If you are still unable to solve the problem you may need to do additional research and troubleshooting.
Show all parts for model GEW9878LW0 For the symptom you selected, these are the most common parts or causes, ordered by the likelihood of fixing the symptom.
othercausesandconditions.jpg Air Flow Problem The most common problem when a dryer is slow is when the vent is clogged. If the dryer is slow, check the vent from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house. If that is clogged, clear it completely and test the dryer. If the dryer is slow after the vent is cleaned, clean the internal ductwork of the dryer. This will require some disassembly.
blower-wheel-694089-00918612.jpg Blower Wheel

Item # 686172
The blower wheel draws air through the dryer and pushes the air out the vent. If the dryer won't stop, the blower wheel may not be spinning properly, which reduces the air flow. Check to see if the blower wheel is securely fastened to the drive motor shaft.

The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity.

We have a air flow problem but exaust tube is not clogged no air coming out of bottom of dryer

On this weird dryer the blower is not mounted to the motor. Instead a fancy blower is mounted away from the dryer and requires a second smaller belt to drive it. What goes wrong? The drive pulley for the blower often falls off the motor. Locktite is recommended to keep the blower pulley secure to the motor shaft or this will be the result:

Lint all over clothes

when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and the vent line?next time send the brand name and model number off of the machine,just cleaning off the lint filter isn't good enough,you should have the dryer taken apart,clean the duct that the filter slides into,vac out the cabinet where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run from the back of the dryer to the outside you can remove the vent line from the back of the dryer and blow it out with a leaf blower,as long as there isn't a cage or anything on the outside hood stick the leaf blower in the vent line and blow the lint outside,also while you have the vent line off the back start the dryer and make sure you feel air blowing out the back of the dryer,if it doesn't you could have a problem with the blower wheel the dryer should be cleaned out at least once a year if it's gas and once every 1 1/2 to 2 years if it's electric.hope this helps and good luck with your dryer.

Dryer will get hot but will not dry clothes

If the dryer gets hot, but not drying the clothes my first question would be if the drum is turning or not. If not then I would check the belt and make sure it isn't busted. Then I would check to make sure that your exhause hose is not clogged up. If so clean out.

But if that isn't the problem then I would check the blower assembly.

Electric dryer, vent is clear, no air coming out vent line.

You most likely have a broken blower fan wheel. The hub sometimes will crack on the blower wheel and it will either not turn or turn very slowly on the motor shaft. I used model 110.6808600 as a reference since you did not include your model number:

I had a chipmunk climb into my vent and into the dryer. It was ran without knowing the critter was inside, now the dryer over heats. The top right side and the line where the wires run get so very hot. ...

Something is still blocking the air flow to the outside, or the motor is burned out. Pull your lint filter out and turn the dryer on. You should be able to hear and feel air rushing through the lint filter hole. If no air is coming out the blower motor is porbably burned out. If something actually stops the blower wheel from turning it will quickly burn the motor out. Remove the back panel to access the fan motor. Be sure to unplug the dryer before removing any panels. If air is flowing at the lint filter, your vent line is stopped up.

Maytag Bravos dryer heats but does not blow air out the vent.

Since you did not provide a model number I picked a similar model for reference using this model number: MDE5721TQO (there are at least 40 different model numbers but the blowers are all the same) You blower is driven directly by the motor so unless the blower itself has come apart or the drive spline in the blower has failed in some way you more than likely have a major build up of lint in your dryer.

You can look here to see the blower location

You can turn the motor by hand and see if the blower is turning by losening the housing screws for the blower while using a flashlight. If the blower is turning then you need to find out where the blockage of lint has built up and remove it. I would startt around the lint filter. NOTE The drum will also turn.if you rotate the motor pulley. Just make sure the unit is unplugged while you attempt this. If you do locate the blockage I have found that a well bent into a U shaped METAL coat hanger works well. Do NOT poke any sharp objects into the air ducting areas of your dryer while trying to find any blockages and avoid the heating element area with anything metal or sharp. A vacuum crevice tool works great during this task. Good luck and I do hope you are able to locate the problem based on the information here.

Kenmore series 90 electric dryer: exhaust air is

that's normal,obviously you haven't cleaned out your dryer and vent line,nobody ever tells the customer when you buy your dryer that it should be cleaned out at least once a year so you don't have a fire more so if it's a gas dryer with an open flame inside the dryer,you gotta vac out the inside where the motor is,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into and blow out the vent line,i use a leaf blower to clean out the vent line,take it off the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower in the line if it's a long run if it runs through the wall and to the outside flapper and blow all the **** out of it,also if you have a shop vac put it on blow and blow off the motor,you won't believe how much lint comes off the motor even though it looks clean,so vac out the inside of dryer,clean out the lint filter duct and blow out the vent line
