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!!
Thanks for the response. I tend to go into rant mode when I think about how how un-handy most folks are. Then I hear about how un-handy so many of the "professionals" are. When it comes to electronics, I'm defenseless. So many repairs around the house result from the ability to run a screwdriver and a box of band aids. I also had two screws left over. 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 person....you'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.
