I have a maytag neptune dryer, model number MDG5500AWW with a serial number of 62759275CN.  The serial number determines the blower wheel configuration.  The blower wheel does not have a snap ring or retainer ring to hold it on the hub.  The wheels hub has a what I believe to be a reverse thread.  I cant loosen it due to it wanting to turn the big drum.  Help!  I caused this mess by droping a foreign object into the lint trap and forgot to tell my wife.  She loaded the dryer hit the switch and KABOOM!

Thanks David

You're right,they have left hand threads.They tighten to the left and loosen to the right.You need two wrenches one for the front and one for the back..:)

OK the wheel has been replaced, I snaped the cover back on and then the door.  Smooth machine now except it has a high pitch humming niose that my wife does not like!  Any idea what it could be?  I guess I could stand taking it apart just once more,  My wife did close the door to the laundry room because my son was in ear shot, DAM should not be his first word

 

Thanks !

David
