Question about Dryers
I'm willing to wager that your dryer is an older Maytag.
If it is then your problem is the blower impeller.
Unplug you dryer
1st. Remove front panel. Do this by removing 2 Phillips head screws located 4 inches from the bottom and on the right and left side. Once these are removed swing the bottom of the front panel out toward you at about a 45 degree angle. This will allow the top pivot clips to release allowing the front panel to be set aside.
2nd. remove the drum shroud. This is what supports the front of the drum and also has the lent screen housing attached to it. There are 4 hex head screws that hold it in place. There are two on the right and two on the left. Once these are removed pull it away from the machine insuring that there are no wires attached if there is mark were they go and remove. Allow the drum to fall and rest on top of the blower housing. This does not need to be removed.
3rd. You will see the blower housing and blower impeller located on the bottom left hand side. Remove the several 1/4 hex head screws securing it and move it out of your way. (there is no need to remove the wires from the Thermostats).
4th. Remove the snap-ring and clamp and pull old impeller off of motor shaft. Look at center if it is a round hole this is your problem it should have a flat side to match the motor shaft.
5th. To put back together reverse all above steps.
A hand DIYer with basic hand tools should be-able to do this job and save a service call.
