Removal of fan on Kenmore Dryer Model 110.63942101
« on: April 07, 2010, 06:12:32 PM »
A.J. told me that my problem with the Moisture Sensor is likely related to an air flow problem.  He suggested removing the fan housing and cleaning it out.  I removed the cover to the fan but don't know how to get the fan out.  It looks like maybe a special tool is needed.  Can someone help me with this situation?  Thanks,  Keys

You do not need to remove the fan blade to clean things up.

This photo shows you what to clean.



btw: The fan has left hand threads on it.

The photo of the fan housing is useful.  However my cover to the fan only exposes the fan, not the vent pipe like the one in the photo.  I don't know how to remove the fan since the shaft turns with it and there's no way to hold the shaft due to the housing.  The one in the photo may allow access to the back of the shaft but mine doesn't.  From what I can see there is no blockage of the vent though.  I also looked into the vent pipe from the rear and it looked clear.  Is there an electronic part that might need replacing for the Moisture Sensor Control since there doesn't seem to be an air flow problem, as A.J. mentioned?

Thanks
