« on: July 27, 2009, 07:12:02 AM »
My dryer works but the noise it make is so loud you cant hear yourself think. I have replaced the blower 3 times in the past year. for 2-3 weeks its great nice and quite. It seems to be wearing out and not spinning evenly why would this be?

Model LDEA200AGE

This will end up being a vent restriction of some sort. PLease describe the exhaust sytem on the dryer, from the vent hose on back to the length and direction of the vent run. (up, down, etc)

the centre of the blower that fits onto the pin is what keeps breaking

Im not sure what you mean...the blower is at the bottom of the dryer and blows the heat up to the door the vet that takes away the heat lays vertical at the botom of the dryer

What have you got for vent piping?
Ridgid metal vent pipe is recommended to keep the blower cooler. Cheapasz plastic vinyl or tinfoil vent pipe won't cut it with this dryer. If the clothes are getting too hot then the control thermostat may be faulty.It is mounted on front of the blower.

I have a Ridgid metal vent pipe, the cloths dont get to hot everything works fine but for some reason the centre of the blower keeps wearing down and snapping, after a few weeks.

Are you installing the C-clamp AND the horseshoe clamp? If you are omitting the c-clamp that might be the probo.

To secure the blower onto the motor shaft they use a compression C-clamp that goes on first. Then a horseshoe shaped clamp called a snap ring is installed onto the shaft itself to prevent the clamp from sliding off in the event the plastic gets loose (which we all know it does). You must use snap ring pliers to install this part.
