frigidaire dryer rumbles

customer complaint... dryer rumbles

tested unit... heard excessive noise and vibration

removed front panel to inspect blower wheel(expecting to find a dryer sheet)

blower wheel looked clean,further inspection found the plastic blower wheel to be stripped off its shaft(uncommon in frigidaire dryers(stripped blower wheels are a maytag problem))

replaced blower with part #131775600 blower kit(wheel and housing)

inspected rear bearing and greesed during reassembly
