Question about KitchenAid Dryers
I just fought to get the blower fan off, had to resort to breaking it with a hammer. Once the fan was off I replace it with the new one. Put the machine back together, plugged it in, pushed the on button, now the motor wont spin. Just makes a loud humming noise. Did I damage it trying to get the fan off, or did I over tighten the new fan resulting in unknown problem ? I took everything apart back down to just the motor, tried to run it again with same humming noise. Any thoughts.
Try taking it apart again and try to turn the motor by hand. It should spin freely. If it does you've probably got a bad motor. If it is stiff or doesn't turn at all, then you might have missed something putting it back together. I wouldn't think you can overtighten the blower, it is probably something else, and with it apart it should be easy to see.
