Question and Answers

Q:

Dryer repair

A:

Diagnosing dryers can be difficult. While you wait for the expert to review your model, you can check a similar question from a previous expert post if you like. I attached the link below. If you do decide to have a technician diagnose and make repairs, an option is to visit Sears Home Services and use the handy scheduler.

I talked to the repair folks yesterday. $129 for service call plus parts. I would rather put that toward a new dryer. If the epoxy will hold the plastic fan blower wheel to the shaft and is safe to do so, it will buy me some time and only cost $4.

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

I have never tried nor have I ever see any one attempt it. The motor shaft will get very hot from the heat of the motor and from the heating element and I'm not sure if a high temperature two part epoxy would withstand the heat or not. It may be worth a try but if it doesn't then the epoxy would have to be cleaned off the motor shaft before a new blower wheel would fit over the shaft.

Let me know if it works.

I thought about that and decided the potential mess may prohibit me putting on a new wheel later. However I was able to put on a new wheel myself for its cost of $32, thus saving the $129 service charge. I would have paid $32 for the part anyway. Thanks for your input.
