Thank you!

Just wanted to thank everyone here who posted their discoveries regarding the very loud vibrating noise coming from their dryer, especially MrWrongsAlive. After reading all the post, I knew what to look for when I opened up my Frigidaire dryer. And sure enough, there were two cracks in the blower wheel right were it screws onto the motor shaft. With the aide of a how to video put out by "Repairclinic" I was able to remove the old blower wheel housing and install a new one. Also, greased the bearing and cleaned it up real good while I had it open. Put it all back together, and it runs smooth and quiet just like new! Thanks again guys!! You were an answer to prayer!!

I went back in and found their homes. Blood....yes....that's half the fun. Kinda like red meat and beer in the mind of a man. To you women folk out there, you too have the ability to be a handy'll probably fix the problem with no blood shed.

Thanks and keep the common mechanical sense and abilities alive!
I thought I was the only one that felt like this. I've had people over the years ask how I know how to fix so much stuff. I tell them that I've never been able to afford to pay anyone to fix it and can't afford to replace it so you learn ti fix it. And I always tell my son, If you get blood, it's gonna turn out alright. No blood and you just as well do it over.
