Remove the front panel by following these steps:

1. UNPLUG dryer before servicing.
2. Open lint screen and remove lint screen filter.
3. Remove the two screws at the lint screen opening.
4. The top panel with console, should lift up at this point (you may have to pull it towards you slightly if there are retaining clips holding it in place).
5. Unplug the door latch plug (small white connector plug).
6. Locate the retaining screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side of the cabinet interior at the upper left and right corners of the front panel.
7. With the screws and connector plugs removed, the front panel should lift up slightly, then come off.

NOTE: Note the position of the small retaining clips at the bottom left and right corners behind the front panel. These clips will insert into two slots at the bottom corners of the front panel to hold it in place when re-installing.

I hope you find this information helpful. If you still have questions, please let me know.

PS You can go to searspartdirect.com and type in the same model number you provided. There are helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can assist you. The "Top and Console" and "Cabinet" headings will help you with disassembly (if needed).

Replacing heating element in Kenmore model 110.65922


The heating element will have multiple coils to it with two leads coming into it. POS/NEG. If that is it then it is very strange that it is not enclosed in some way shape or form.

Does not heat


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
There are a few reasons why this is happening i have listed the most common items to check listed below
1st is the heating element this is the most common thing that fails
The heating elements are a common problem with dryers not heating and are an easy do-it-yourself repair. On the Newton style dryers, the heating element is located under the tub on the right in a round heater-can. To access it, first remove the front panel by removing the two screws on each side at the bottom of the front panel or if it's a newer model, prize the clips under the front panel. Then pull out the bottom of the front panel until the top clips release.This should release the top so that you can lift it up. Once up, you should see the heater at the back. Checking the heating element is the same for both styles. First disconnect power from dryer then unplug the wires going to the heating element. Next using your ohmmeter , check to see if you have continuity between the terminals on the heating element.
If you don't,have continuity the heating element is bad and needs replacing, if there is continuity the heating element is ok.

Kitchen aid kgys750gq0 works but there is no heat


The KitchenAid KGYS750GQ0 is a gas dryer, so the solution of looking for a heating element is not helpful. There are several heat switches and a gas burner assembly (which includes a gas valve and an electric ignition), any of which could be the problem.

Kitchen aid kgys750gq0 works but there is no heat


your heat strip is possibly blown out.
This strip is located at the base of the dryer and looks like the inside of a toaster. These wires heat up your dryer to dry the clothes. If this element is burnt out the dryer will not heat. I would suggest having an appliance tech look at the dryer since some of the different types of heat strips need to have the thermal high limit switch replaced when the heat strip is replaced

My kitchen aid dryer does does not reach the higher temperatures it used to--it takes a much longer time to dry clothes.-even when set at "high"


Please clean the entire vent system from the dryer to the outside.
Make sure the vent is not smashed behind the dryer.

Long time to dry complaints are usually due to restricted house exhaust vents.

To test...Remove vent from dryer and operate dryer with a wet load if the unit dries ok the vent is @ fault.
If not one stage of the heat element could be burnt out.

Trying to locate heating element on kitchen aid dryer


Do you have the part number, is so Put in (Find kitchen aid dryer Part# 111111* ) Or( Find kitchen aid dryer heating element* ). If this is a old dryer some parts are not made anymore. Any Dryer over 7 years old is no longer energy efficient. Hope This Helps.
