FA4B blower assembly noise


It is possible that the actual fins have separated from the hub. Hold the shaft of the motor (as to stop it from spinning) and the try to spin the fins. You then may notice the welds are broken. Could just be a bad motor, could be just the wheel. Good Luck!!

Duet f70 erroe


An F70 error is indicating that an overheating condition has been sensed.
Causes:
1. Lint build up at the outside wall vent flapper (Clean and Vac)
2. Lint build up in the dryer ducting (Clean and Vac)
3, Poor Air Flow through the dryer due to a blower wheel problem. (Broken blower wheel fins or the venter hub fails causing the blow wheel not to turn at full speed.
4. Lint filter is clogged with fabric sheet particulate. Wash it with vinegar and water and then soap and water.
5. Lint filter cavity is full of lint. Use a folded wire coat hanger to reach the inaccesable areas to dislodge lint build up.

This error is always caused by poor air flow. The dryer vent external connection should push a relaxed hand gently away from the dryer vent connection of the dryer. If you do not have this type of air flow you need to find out why.

I have a maytag heavy duty gas dryer model number LDG412 i need to know how to clean the vent all the way to the duct, the dryer is getting hot but it is taking a long time to dry clothes now, inside where...


Hello,
while cleaning the venting is never a bad idea and i recommend its done yearly,a common problem with older (the ldg 412 is from the mid 1980's) Maytag dryers isa stripped drive hub on the blower wheel and absolutly no air is being circulated throughout the dryer. A lot of times when starting the dryer and when it stops a rumbling noise will be made if the blower wheel is the problem. To check it if is the blower wheel you can remove the front panel by removing the screws that are a slight angle at the bottom of the front panel,tilt it out toward you at about a 45degree angle,then off. At that point remove the four 5/16" hexhead screws holding on the front drum support,lift it up slighly then off. The blower wheel will be in the lower left corner and you could spin it by your hand if it spins around the motor shaft it slips onto and does not move the drum while turning the blower wheel,it is stripped and needs to be replaced.To replace it remove the 1/4" hex head screws that hold the front plate to the plastic blower housing(7 screws) and the 5/16" hex head in the tab also in the plate in the front of blower housing the plate where come off. To replace blower wheel remove the greenish/black clamp from the center hub and the thin metal ring that fits ina groove on the motor shaft, a special c/e clip ring pliers are needs to remove the ring. A inexpensive pair could be picked up at most places that sell tools(ace hardware/lowes/home depot/sears) The part number for the blower wheel is 303836 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

I hope this will help you to repair your dryer,

I have a 2005 chevy Silverado 4x4 . How do you find out if the hubs are bent..


Do you mean hubs or do you mean wheels?

If the hubs are bent, your tires can wear funny depending on which way they are bent. In this case, the spindles may have to be replaced a long with any other parts that may be bent. In some bad cases, it can cause brakes to malfunction because the hubs do not sit centered in the wheel. It can also cause bearing failure in minor cases. I believe your model has the bearings sealed into the hubs? it would be very hard to just bend the hub without bending other vital suspension parts.
In the least cases, tires will wear funny and there will always be a "shimmy" when you drive until the suspension is fixed. You shouldn't have bent hubs unless your vehicle has been in a decently hard front end impact collision.

If you are talking about your wheels, the easiest way is to have your local tire store put them on a balancing machine (and let you watch if you want) you can see if the wheel is warped when the machine spins it at low speed. You can check for flat spots on the rims just by looking but it's much easier to see these with the tires off of the rims.

The flywheel is located behind the recoil assembly. There are 4 bolts that secure the recoil to the engine. 2 on top near the spark plug and 2 at the bottom of the recoil houseing.
