It might be reverse thread, i don't remember. hold the motor shaft with a wrench and turn the shaft clock wise ; it will be very tight.

How do I clean dryer squirrel cage?

To remove drum/fan drive motor:

• Remove rear panel & rear air duct. Remove belt from belttensioner. Remove top panel & drum if needed for better access.
• Disconnect terminal connector from motor, then remove two screws from motor mount & one screw holding fan to front shield. Lift rear of motor mount up and slide entire assembly toward rear of dryer.
• While holding motor shaft, not rotor fins, remove fan blade from motor shaft. Remove three screws, then remove fan housing from motor.
• Remove spring clamps by pushing ends of them down and away from motor. Lift motor up from motor mount.



Cage motor is the best blow out with compressed air. Also, by the way, clean the fan housing from the inside.

Bosch WTA3500: is the blower fan to be turning loosely on the axle of the fan motor or is it supposed to be firmly connected?

Hello, welcome to FixYa.

Based on your post I understand you have a Bosch WTA3500 dryer, correct ? Further to this you've stated "is the blower fan to be turning loosely on the axle of the fan motor or is it supposed to be firmly connected?"

...It should certainly be firmly connected and only spin when the motor/drum is in operation.

It can become loose, (check the 13mm nut attaching it to the motor shaft) but if so chances are it has broke from the shaft in my almost 20 yrs. experience. I do have service manuals for these machines, but they come at a cost.

If you want to investigate further and you think/agree the service manual would benefit you, please reply with an email address and I can send it to you, or you can contact me a

I am presently in the process of setting up my FixYa marketplace account, though I've been here for quite a while...there's been some changes here so I must adapt, lol.

I will watch for your reply.

Clothes dryer drum will not spin. open it up and belt looks ok. now what?

You need to check the blower fan and make sure there's no obstructions (you probably would have noticed by now though).
Remove the belt from the motor pinion and try to rotate the shaft of the motor manually. To remove the belt, you will need to relieve the tension of the belt by moving the idler pulley over to slip the belt off. If it is stiff, or almost impossible to rotate manually, the blower fan housing is clear, then you need to replace the motor. IF.........
The motor shaft rotates freely, try to run the motor with the belt removed. If it does run with the belt removed, then you need to check the idler pulley and the drum itself. The idler pulley is the little wheel that the belt runs around to keep tension on the belt. It may be stiff or frozen.
If you've gotten this far, try to rotate the drum by hand, if it is difficult to do, focus your attention to the rollers and pulley.
If the motor doesnt rotate, even with the belt removed, yet you can turn it freely by hand. You usually need to replace the motor or the motor start capacitor.
I hope that you have found this helpful.

I need to see a diagram on how to take apart and install a new wheel for pushing out the hot air to the outside.

Since you did not provide a make and model I cannot give you specific diagram or instructions. Here is the general procedure to replace a fan wheel that is attached to the shaft at one end of the motor.
Disconnect power. Remove drum drive belt from the small wheel at the motor. It should have a spring tension wheel that can be loosened to remove it. You shouldn ot have to remove the belt from around the drum. Remove the screws/bolts that hold the motor in place. Disconnect wiring if necessary. Keep track of what wire is connected to each terminal so you can reconnect easily. Lift the motor out and install the new fan wheel on the shaft (after removing the old wheel.) Reverse the procedure to re-install.

Can't remove motor from dryer

you need to pretty much disassemble the whole machine. the top cover comes off, the front panel with door comes off. the drum lifts out to access the motor as it is bolted to the floor.
