Default blower wheel repair
Model Number: LNC7761A71   Brand: Admiral   Age: More than 10 years

After my last post with you regarding a noisy dryer, we agreed that the blower wheel was wearing out in the center. I ordered the new wheel from you (#AP4038939 {31001317}). I tried installing the new wheel and the center hole is slightly smaller than the spindle it slides onto. It won't go on.

My old blower wheel has the number >PP-TS20< in one quadrant on the back and the number 4 in the quadrant to the right. Your replacement part has the exact same number >PP-TS20< in one quadrant but the number 3 in the quadrant to the right.

Could this difference affect the size of the center hole?

Any suggestions as to how to get your new wheel onto my center spindle?

Thanks,

Mike

Mike,

This part number is correct. This is the OEM part and should fit properly. It could be slightly tight to put it on.

Gene.

Hi Gene,

Tried again today to attach new blower wheel. Still too tight. I tried gently using a rubber mallet to no avail. The plastic center started to chip away-the center hole is too small. I measured my motor shaft diameter to the flat side of shaft. It is 7/16". The diagram says it should be 3/8" which is what the new blower wheel opening is. I tried to google my model number (LNC7761A71) but it did not come up. The closest number was LNC7760A71 or LNC7764A71.

My serial number is 10415075QZ if this helps.

Any further help would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Mike

Hi Mike,

In your first thread Mike posted on 12/05/11 you stated that the model number of your dryer is LNC7764A71. The part number for the blower wheel given to you is for this model number. The model number LNC7761A71 does not come up anywhere. Is it American model?

Gene.

Hello Mike,

I read the posts, watched the video an purchassed the same part. It didn't fit. I hammered it on and broke it. Now I have two broken impellars. That is the technical term for the PP-TS20 WHEEL. The date of the old part is 11/31/2007. You would think that Maytag would know better than to treat their customers this way.

I'm in the same boat as you. I see this was from May of this year. What did you do to resolve the issue??
