Stackable Dryer - motor replacement help
« on: February 20, 2010, 05:54:07 PM »

Hi have a Frigidaire Gallery FSE447GHS0 stackable dryer- just ordered the replacement motor (131511900) - as it was refusing to start unless you hand started it and even then would sometime cut out during the drying cycle.  I had the dryer apart today - front cover off, rear access panel off, pulley wheels off but still couldn't get off the blower in order to replace the motor.  Was afraid I was going to strip the plastic nut on the blower.  

Any tips?  manual, any help really would be great.  I ended up putting it all back together until i can come up with a way to remove the blower assy from the motor.

Thanks - great board.  I found that this is a two person job as I needed someone hold the shaft while used my Oxygen sensor socket (7/8th inch) to turn to the right to loosen the blower.  Reading through the manuals posted on this thread I found that the blower is installed with left-handed threads so left loosey means you are tightening the nut!  But,once the blower was off it was a straightforward replacement that took then about 15 min to finish up.
