S'cuse me, Tom, but you're making suggestions that might prove harmful. Regarding the Frigidaire blower versus the Maytag blower, the shafts might appear the same, but take a closer look...
The Frigidaire blower is a 15-vane wheel, designed this way for a specific air velocity. The Maytag wheel is a 20-vane wheel, with a much increased velocity. Problem here is amp draw on the motor. A bigger, stronger fan will pull down the motor amps badly and may kick it out on overload, not to mention poor drying results from airflow that is too fast..
The blower you recommend will suck the laundry thru the lint filter and shoot them out the back
Remember, that's a dinky little drum on that thing. We call them the 'disposable models' at the shop.
