    Interesting. I have 6 hex head screws. They were removed from the back, two at the top in line with the two that hold the top in place, and two from each side. When I examined the inside there is nothing to be re-attached. Nothing on the floor and nothing dangling anywhere. Any idea what I might be missing. Forget how I got into this thread, but the model # is YGEW9868KQ0

HOW TO GET INTO THE CABINET OF MODEL LER3622HQ0 WHIRLPOOL DRYER


You will need to remove the top panel, then the front panel in order to access the dryer interior on this model. With the dryer UNPLUGGED, follow these steps:
1. Locate the screws for the top panel in the REAR of the dryer. With the screws removed, the top panel should slide back, then lift off so you can access the screws holding the front panel in place.
2. Disconnect the door switch connector and any ground wires that may be attached to the front panel. Then, remove the panel screw on each side that holds the front in place. With the screws removed, the panel will lift up, then come off.
You should now have full access to your dryer interior. If you have any questions about this procedure, or if you need additional advice, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.
NOTE: There are helpful exploded view parts diagrams that can assist with disassembling and reassembling your dryer at the following websites:

How do I take off the back to get to elements and fuse on my kenmore elite dryer, I took screws off but the top appears to be welded.


Getting to the heating circuits is not the same on every model of dryer. Some dryers have heating circuits in the REAR of the dryer, some have the heating circuits located inside the cabinet UNDER the drum and others have heating circuits BEHIND the drum.

If your dryer has the lint screen on the TOP of the unit, you will need to remove the BACK panel of the dryer to expose the heating circuits.

If the dryer has the lint screen in the DOOR, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips. They will be located along the seam in the front about 2 inches in from each side. If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet, the lower toe panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel.

If you do not have a toe panel, you will need to lift the dryer top and remove the entire FRONT panel to access the internal components.

If you have further questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so I can determine how your dryer is constructed.

Whirlpool gas dryer


From the sound of your problem, it appears you may have a faulty overtemp switch that gets too hot , opens the circuit to disable gas and flame, then cools down and allows it to start again.. Since you didn't provide a specific model number with your question.. use this link to find replacement whirlpool thermal fuses etc.. http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/whirlpool-dryer.php#fuse

Hope this helps..

Removing top from Whirlpool Gold Ultimate Care Model GEQ8858KQ0 Dryer


Here is the answer to my own question and for anyone else who may have a similar noise problem with coins , metal objects, etc getting under the vanes or fins in the dryer drum. DISCONNECT OR UNPLUG DRYER-Remove 4 screws from the back edge of the control panel on the back of the dryer. Then lift up on the backside of the cover that also has the control unit attached to it. Slide the top cover towards the front of the dryer and then lift up on front and lay the entire cover and control panel towards the back of the dryer. A wall works great to hold this out of your way. The control panel remains on the cover and the drum will stay intact. Rotate the drum to locate which fin or vane the object is located. Move this vane to top and then remove three screws that is holding the vane. These are course threaded screws that screw into the plastic vanes. a nu6t driver was required. After removing the vane I found a quarter, and a few lint balls, There are only three vanes in the drum, so take about 10 more minutes and remove all three vanes to clean out the lint.To reinstall cover slide the cover back onto the two clips(one on each side) push towards back, checking to make sure front is held down by the clips, then replace the 4 screws on backside of dryer. If the lady of the house is around, it would now be a good time to clean out from behind and under the dryer to get up the rest of the dust, lint, and whatever remains or was lost.
