Nope you gotta buy the whole blower assembly, the good news is it mounts up easy enough. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJufdn6BHbw

Jason, I have the same problem... the catch on my Zanussi dryer has broken. I've ordered a spare part... and remembered how I took the thing apart.
I'd have to show you... it can't be put into words. LOL
Hopefully by now you've figured it out. (Just seen the date you posted this).

URGENT WHEEL BEARING SAFETY ISSUE


Its your wheel bearing... replace it ASAP! You may have noticed a hum while driving over 35 that changes when you rock the steering back and forth. A while after this the lights come on as the sensor is part of the hub assembly.

Bang noise every turn of drum?


Check for a loose vane (inside drum paddle) to see if one is loose.

My Kenmore 90 series just quit.


Check the following areas to address this issue.


1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in.

2. Door switch / Door switch actuator lever
The dryer would not start with a broken door switch. Replace the door switch if found defective.

Most dryers have a door switch actuator lever - when you close a dryer door, it presses against the lever, which actuates the door switch. If the lever is broken, the switch would not activate and the dryer would not start. Replace the lever, if broken.

Note: Door switch actuator lever usually comes with the door switch assembly and it is recommended to get the whole assembly since there is almost no price difference between the door switch assembly and just the lever. Check your model for more details.

3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

Note: It is recommended by most dryer manufacturers to replace a hi-limit thermostat when replacing a thermal fuse.

4. Timer/control
Replace if defective (note: uncommon problem).

1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for a tripped circuit breaker or a blown fuse. Check the wall socket for power with a voltmeter or by plugging something else in. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.

Over the weekend, I notice a bird flying in and out of my dryer vent... then our Kenmore electric dryer stopped heating. I'm think that there wasn't enough airflow and the thermo-fuse probably blew... What...


Ah Yes! the old bird in the dryer vent problem!
I would say you are correct. The thermo-fuse blew because of not enough air flow through the heat tunnel.
You probably have a nest in your vent line now.
Clear the entire line from machine outward, replace flex hose if needed and get a new outlet cover with the flaper door on it.
I avoid the ones with screens on the outlet, because it catches lint.
Except in severe cases where a mouse or some other varmit has figure out how to lift the door.

Hi

If your dryer is noisy, check these:
Rollers Many dryers use rollers or wheels to support the clothes drum. When these rollers are worn, they can be noisy. You should replace the whole set of rollers at the same time.

Idler pulley Dryers have a tension or idler pulley that keeps tension on the main drive belt. When it's worn, it can be noisy. When that happens, don't lubricate it. Just replace it.

Glides Many dryers use nylon or plastic glides at the front of the clothes drum for support. When these are worn, they can be noisy. When that happens, replace them.

Rear drum bearing Some dryers support the clothes drum in the rear with a center spindle instead of rollers. The spindle may be a ball-and-socket type support or a shaft through a sleeve. When the components are worn, they may squeak, squeal, or rub. You can't repair them. Just replace them when they're worn.

Blower wheel Your dryer's blower wheel pulls air over the heat source, through the clothes drum, and past the thermostats, then pushes it out the exhaust duct. The blower wheel, which is usually plastic, may wear out over time. But if it's noisy, it may simply be clogged with lint. Clean the blower and test to see if the dryer is still noisy. If it is, you probably need to replace it.

Please revert for further assistance and Do rate the solution as "FixYa" if found useful.

Thanks
