Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will assist you today

repairguy :

So that I am able to give you more solid advice on this unit I will need you to provide me with the model number of the unit

repairguy :

If you open the door of the dryer you will see a model tag,

Customer:

mod dpgt750ec1pl

repairguy :

ok thank you, XXXXX XXXXX see the entire unit now

repairguy :

How do you know the blower is not blowing fast?\

Customer:

i took the front cover off and start the dryer

Customer:

its heating

repairguy :

From removing the front you can see the blower wheel correct

Customer:

yes took off that lent cover

repairguy :

That blower mounts directly to the motor, does the drum turn normal?

repairguy :

or does the blower wheel look like it catches only every once in a while

Customer:

no its a seperate moter

repairguy :

You are right i am very sorry

repairguy :

Does the blower wheel look like it is slipping

Customer:

no seams tight

repairguy :

Then the only other thing is the motor then, do you want me to look up the part number for you?

Customer:

does the motor has a speed control

Customer:

or its one speed

repairguy :

one speed that is why i asked about the blower, usually the blower wheel is just mounted to the same motor that turns the drum, I guess Ge wanted to get fancy with this one.

Customer:

ok so u say its the motor bad

repairguy :

there is only the motor and the blower wheel and the housing, so yes if the vent is not blowing strong then the only thing is the motor, I will be happy to look it up for you.

Customer:

no i can get it thanks alot
