Anonymous asked 7 years ago
I am trying to replace the blower fan on an LG dryer.  I took the bolt off and the washer but there’s also a lock plate that I cannot for the life of me remove.  Is there any trick to this?  I saw a video on YouTube and it just came off easily like the washer.  That’s not what’s happening here.  Help!
