Lint duct to blower removal
« on: October 17, 2009, 12:05:11 PM »
Just joined Hi to everyone!

I have Admiral Dryer ADE7005AYW, it sounds like something is bouncing inside the blower
fins or rattling from the plastic lint duct leading to it, I raised the top and removed the
front panel but cannot get the door switch connector apart, I am always very careful
with all type connectors that's why I'd rather ask here first before proceeding,
 
Also the manual says remove the moisture sensor connector as well, I did not see that
anywhere any advice on this would be very appropriated.

Just yank the wires off the switch, I believe all 3 wires have different size clips on em so you can't screw up the replacement. Or mark each wire with a color, write a quick diagram of what went where.  I take a magic marker and write it on the panel.

Just yank the wires? we must be on the wrong page or something, the door switch is a
connector that needs to be depressed in some way to separate  I don't even see the
moister sensor connector.

If you don't see a little clip to depress on the wire harness then it is just a straight pull, grab it with a pair of needle nose and work it back and forth.  You will either find the clip to depress or it will come off.

Hi ours is a little bit different, but that's not my problem

I need to know how to disconnect the door switch connector so I can freely
remove and set aside the door and where is the moisture sensor connector
the manual says I need to disconnect that as well before removing the linty duct

even in your photos that lint duct part is already removed that's what I need to do
my wife tried to vacuum out that lint duct inside with a crevice tool and poped something
out of whack I think

I think it is where the cover inserts into the fin area, and the fins are catching the plastic
a very tiny amount when spinning, I need to probably just straighten that.

I posted when you where replying,  OK I will take a look again in a bit, most of these connectors just need to be depressed that s good to know? I broke a engine connector
one time years ago that was so expensive, and I never will again for anything.

No thanks that was it, our model number is in it
can you please take a look at the pdf and let me
know

In the dryer manual pdf under motor blower removal...
just above #5 I found the moisture sensor connector
do I pull off the plastic block like part or the wires from
inside it?

I do not want to pull those two wires out and find out
that I ruined it.

Thanks

PS that's a good area for everybody to know how to dissemble
for maintenance cleaning as well.

OK saying yank out the wires might not have been a very good way to explain it.
Of course you would never grab the wires but the connectors or the spade clips.
It might a good Idea to wear latex gloves with these newer machines to prevent static discharge from affecting these lame mexitronix. LOL

Really sorry about the big production over something so simple to do, Just got it,
a big paper clip was lodged near the blower exhaust opening at the top, there is a nice
scrape trail in the plastic under the blower blades

I bet that door switch is a very popular item at the parts dealer those spades are really
on their and that switch is so chincy but I really went gentle as possible taken them off
made sure the blower duct and front panel seal sat just right.

I don't think it's possible for them to make these dryers any cheaper they didn't even
waste the electrical tape going up properly for the harness as it entered the control panel
