If this fuse is bad the blower won't blow

where do I locate this fuse? I was told earlier that I most likely have a bad blower wheel!

How should I proceed?
Thx

Why you think your blower is loose anyway. You cannot beat them dudes off the motor. If yours was loose it would be a freak of nature

The backside of the dryer is where all this stuff is. Here is your dryer. if your dryer has a lint problem then that fuse will blow so you needs to check fer stuff like blocked vents.

Well I am confused as to how to proceed! Do I need to worry about the blower wheel??

Could a worn blower wheel prevent the dryer from blowing air??
Where do I locate the fuse, I am looking at the back of it and don't see it!

Thx

I took the fuse off. How could I test it to see if it is good or bad?

What should I do about blower wheel suggestion that mine might be worn and therefore it won't blow air!

Please help as to how I should proceed next.

Thx!

Well you probably have a bad motor. If the drum was hard to turn then replacing the wheels and Idler might make it run right , but since it has no problems like that then the motor is toast. The bearing is worn out and is allowing the rotor to pole out or bind against the stator.
