It’s Drying Time Again . . .

After I got coffeenated this morning, I pulled the washer back out  and popped the top lid. I had figured it would be quick and easy replacement/fix, but it turned out to be a little more involved. Much like most repairs.

Washer Dryer Blower Motor - New

I inserted the motor/squirrel cage fan assembly down into the housing and tightened it down using the 3 screws. Then turning on the power, I started the dryer.

And nothing.

Well, the drum started turning, but the fan motor didn’t. And when I tried to turn it by  hand it wouldn’t budge.

Well, it was working when I installed it.

So I loosen the mounting screws and tried it again. And it would now turn, but it was scraping inside. A couple of more turns and it was spinning free.

So I removed the assembly and compared it with the old one. And despite having the same part #, the new one was slightly deeper than the old one, so the fan was rubbing against the inside of the housing.

But a couple of shims took care that problem.

Cranking it up again and letting it marinated for a few minutes, I felt the washer door and it was hot. But before I buttoned it up, I went ahead and replaced the Thermal Overheat Fuse since they usually only last a couple of years.

Ten minutes later it was all back together, back in the cabinet, and doing a load.]

It’s Drying Time Again.

Jan will be happy.

Lowell has been sending over some photos of the great time they’re having down in Costa Rica.
