Blower motor does not work, no heat.

I took it all apart, checked for blockages, checked all continuity - all good. Drum turns, no air. Blower motor does not even begin to turn.

If you check for voltage at the blower motor and have zero volts ,change the Control board. If volts are present then change the blower motor. Please Rate This !

GE duet electric dryer. Airflow is erratic/sputtery.


M Pandora,
The squirrel cage fan would not have any bearings. When you turned the fan and you said it did not turn freely, you may have also been turning the entire drum because you would have been turning the motor shaft which then turns the belt and pulley. Not necessarily a bad thing. When you shut the dryer off, does it make a rattling noise as it comes to a stop? If it does, you may have a stripped hub in the center of your fan, and it will need to be replaced. Another way you can tell if it might be stripped is have someone watch the drum while you turn the fan, and if the drum does not move while you are spinning the fan, the hub is stripped. Those fans have a flat spot in the hub and they can get rounded out and that can cause the symptoms that you are describing. Hope this helps!

Hello. I have a 1990 oldsmobile 98 regency elite and I can't get the blower motor to work. I tested all the wires for currency and they good. I also changed out the resistor as well with both relays. I...


There have to be something you missed during your troubleshoot. If the switch to turn on the a/c is good, since it turns on the a/c compressor, then it must be a wire that it's not connecting, or (not sure if there is any in these vehicle) a sensor, which controls the speed of the a/c blower. I'm sharing this because I took apart my vehicle's a/c blower motor, and right at the firewall, there was a sensor. If that is damage, then the blower won't work.

Dryer not heating


usually when the dryer is not heating is because the heating element has break. you can purchase a heating element kit with insulators at a parts appliance store.requires taking the dryer apart and removing the drum. the heating element is behind the drum. if your handy you should have no problem. good luck!

Frigidaire electric dryer. F2143 Hot smell and drum stopped. took apart belt looks good, but the motor will move but with great turning pressure. Can I lubricate the motor and if now how do I replace?...


no the motor can not be lubricated.
the blower wheel can be removed by usin a socket on the front nut and a wrench on the flat spots of the motor shaft .
then remove the clips that hold the motor down and you should be able to remove the motor.
you also need to check the tension pulley and make sure it is not seized 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 http://www.appliancepartspros.com/partsearch/model.aspx?model_id=5133558&diagram_id=1301439#d1301439

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.

No air coming out of vents when air is turned on. the fuses are all ok


2 things come to mind: can you hear the fan turning?

if not check for power at fan location. If there is power and the fan isnt spinning replace the fan. If there is no power
there is a problem with the fan circuit which includes wiring fuse (you stated were ok) and Fan speed switch (might be a module)

Or there is a blockage it is possible for your heater core and evaporator to plug up with dust .

Start button humms when pushed won't start dryer


Mike, I know this is NOT what you want to hear, but the drive motor is failing. No, let me be specific... the motor BEARINGS have failed. There are 2 bearings on your motor, one on either side. They are permanently lubricated and not serviceable. Unfortunately, they can not be replaced without replacing the whole motor. Sorry. Care to know how it works? There's one motor that performs 2 functions (hence the 2 shafts, hence the 2 bearings). One function is to turn the drum, the other is to power the blower assembly for air circulation. From my experience w/ Kenmore (which is almost always built by Whirlpool, btw) I'd almost bet that you have noticed that it takes a long time to dry the clothes, right? Like you put it on timed dry and when the dryer buzzes, you come in to find the clothes still damp and hot? Then you re-set the dryer for another 30 minutes or so? Almost always this is the case. The blower is designed to expel warm, moist air continually. When the dryer vent (to the outside) gets blocked, this air has no place to go. The heat inside the cabinet increases because of the blockage and heat stresses affect the interior components. One of the components especially vulnerable to this heat is the motor bearings. When they over heat, the "permanent" seal expands and blows out. This allows the bearings' lubrication to leak out. When the dryer cools down in between uses, the bearings contract thereby pulling in lint and dust. This cycle continues for a long time. As the bearings continue to deteriorate, the motor must work harder to overcome the "grip" the bearings have on the shaft. This continues until the motor can no longer overcome the resistance (much like the **** during the French Occupation) and all you hear now is the low pitch sound of a motor in its' death throws. My advice? Well? The motor itself costs around $140.00. You'll also need to replace the blower which will be another ~$30.00. So for about $170.00 in parts, you could do this. But I gotta tell you, it's one of the most difficult jobs on a dryer that there is to do. I've done around 500 of them and even knowing what to do it takes me about an hour and 15 minutes (the ENTIRE dryer must be disassembled, repaired and rebuilt). If you call a repair tech to come do the job, the repair cost would be near $300 if not more. So this is your call. If you decide to do the repair, write back with the entire model number (open the dryer door, it's on a sticker on the panel [not the door] and it'll start like 110.*********) and I'll get you part numbers and walk you through the entire procedure. Deal? Cool. Hope this helps. SG
