LEW0050PQ, got the service manual here. It appears like the blower wheel is accessed and replaced by doing most of the steps on pages 30 to 40, In the service manual.  Am I correct in my assumption?

Which manual are looking at?  I'm looking at Job Aid 8178475, L-76.  Blower removal in that manual is just three page:  4-10 thru 12.

I'm looking at the Merloni 24 inch Electric Dryer. The L-76 Job Aid. On page 4-10 it says to refer to pages 4-6 & 4-7 to remove belt and drum. I think you answered my question, its a lot of work. Thanks Samurai. I am doing the job on Monday, I will give an update when completed.

Went and did it Monday, sorry no pics. Pretty easy. Sock in the blower wheel. It is about an hour labor.

 

Thanks

I have both the washer and dryer in my shop.  I bought them for resale.  The dryer wont start and something sounds jammed in the washer back.  Just now downloading the manuals.  Do you want me to take some pictures.  I wonder about how reliable they are.  The washers is as heavy as a full size unit.  I was thinking they would be good for an appartment or even an RV.  I started tqo not buy them but they were so rare to me,  any info on them would be great.  It looks to me like you have to disassemble it from the rear,  I have to study the job aids.  If they have resettable thermals, I havent seen the easy way to get to them.   I can take pictures let me know.

These washers and dryers are something else. The washer often has pump problems and the dryer has thermal fuse and heater problems. I would not recommend this set to an enemy. They are made in Italy or somewhere. Whirlpool messed up in putting their name on them. The heater for the dryer is about $110

The dryer has a power on switch that is bad on my unit, it pushes in and clicks, but one of the poles is not making.  You can hold it in and the power light will start flashing.  I was looking at the switch and trying to figure out how to get it out ( have to look at the manual) it has a rubber seal in there and two tabs, looks like easy to break if you dont do it right.  It ran pretty good, and reversed like it was suppose to.  220 VAC at the door switch and there are exposed terminals male, on the back terminal block, so if your running a test, dont have tools in your pocket or hand, it's a no touch when running with the top off.

 

Lots of loose lent balls, so if you own one it needs an anual cleaning..

The botom switch is my problem 110.00 does not stay in all the way, and light will not flash to indicate power on, when you hold it in it flashed, hit start the light goes steady.
