Dryer Repair / Re: Kenmore electric dryer motor

Thanks for the suggestion. I used a similar tool arrangement and the fins started to distort badly so I stopped. I am considering using a heat gun on the hub area to soften it but I am sure the threaded metal insert will just turn out which negates saving the wheel.  This design is pretty robust but does not come apart easily like the Maytag design. The video on Appliance Part Pros mentions using a chisel to break out the center part of the hub to get it off but I want to salvage the wheel.  As an alternative for the motor being sluggish I am wondering if anyone has tried a motor start capacitor into the electric wiring. I have seen  these on washer motors Which also have a lot of starting inertia with a load of wet clothes. A Speed Queen washer I have here has one.  Comments ?

Take the back and the lint housing off. Put your wrench on the motor shaft at the pulley. You want the wrench braced against the floor of the dryer, to the left of the motor. Take large channel locks and put the handles into the blower fins, 180 degrees apart. Put a pipe between the handles and twist clockwise. I've been using this technique on the stubborn ones for a couple of years with 100% success.

Washer Repair / LG top load washer - no hot water
« Last post by tagarman on May 19, 2016, 09:06:59 PM »
Hi everybody, I came across a LG top load washer that will not fill with hot water.  The model no. is WT5101WH and the SN. is 005KWDJ02178.  The customer has to turn off the cold water at the wall to fill the washer with hot water.  I made sure the fill hoses are connected to the back of the washer correctly.  I ran a heavy cycle with hot fill and sure enough after it filled and started to wash I unlocked the lid and the water is cold.  I know this washer is supposed to fill for the first 45 seconds with cold water thru the dispenser but it should change over to hot after that (and it is not).  If you know what the number of the LG service manual is please let me know so I can check it out.  If anyone has run into this problem before please let me know what needs to be done.  Thank You Very Much!!!   Tom

we ordered a Bosch from Lowes
What model? Feel free to post a link to it.

and now I won't have to repair a 31 year old DW ever again!
Yeah, your new dishwasher (any new dishwasher) won't ever last that long.

Glad you found something that works for you.

BUT think about it. Clogged cap tube equals scrap EVEN TO THE MANUFACTURERS. Not defrost circuit or clogged drain lol.  :2funny: :2funny:
Dryer Repair / Kenmore electric dryer motor
« Last post by Thorning on May 19, 2016, 05:48:40 PM »
I have a series 110.66812691 Kenmore electric dryer that I sold a few days ago.  When I took it apart to clean it and after I noted that the motor seems a bit sluggish to start even when empty of clothes. The customer complained that when he put a load of wet clothes in it it would not always start. I have an alternate motor I want to try but cant get the blower wheel off the motor shaft unless I destroy the blower wheel by drilling out around the hub. The rest of the dryer is in good shape but a new blower wheel and/or motor is too much money to put into this older dryer. Any suggestions on how to get the blower wheel off without destroying it ? I already pretty much rounded off the square boss on the back of the wheel trying to do it the normal way.
