Insert a putty knife into the seam where it meets the front panel about 2 inches in from each side. There is a small retainer clip that you will need top depress in order for the panel to release. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number, you can find a helpful illustration under the "Cabinet" heading. The clips I mention are listed as item 46 just ot give you a perspective. I would also strongly recommend that you UNPLUG the dryer before cleaning the interior cabinet. There are live voltages present even with the dryer turned off. Particulary around the heating circuits. I hope you find this information helpful.

Kenmore Elite Oasis 6806 Electric dryer with burning smell


you must disassemble the unit and clean the lint out of the heating unit area, it is lint catching fire and could be dangerous to continue using your unit in this condition. a vacuum cleaner should do well to clean the lint and the drum must be removed to do a proper cleaning

The only way to know is to get into it and do a quick clean. Oil the rollers and idler,remove the lint chute and get the stuff out of the blower area.

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.

Kenmore Electric Dryer Series 80 Model


Disconnect the dryer from your vent completely,. pull dryer out 3 ft. from wall and test to see if the smell continues, You have to test for a few minutes to clear out any burning lint from vent restrictions. If the smell hoes away then you know you have venting problems. Also check on the grate that covers the element( the part you look through when you see the orange glow from the element) sometimes plastic or clothing burns onto this grate and needs to be cleaned off. I the smell remains, you will have to tear down the dryer to see if you can find the cause of the smell.

Clothes smell musty


The big door seal is probably the problem. Put on gloves and using a solution of Laundry detregent and hot water and rags, carefully wipe clean all the folds of the seal. It will be icky. Next run a cycle with some detergent and oxyclean or bleach if you have it.

Especially during warm weather, damp clothing left in a front loader mildew slightly very quickly- you can't really see much but you can smell it! So get the clothes in to the dryer immediately. You'll want to relaunder the smelly clothing after you have cleaned the washer.

Good luck to you and Thank You using FiX YA!

Kenmore dryer (electric )


Almost always a thermal fuse.

If your lint screen is in the door, follow these directions:
Disconnect the power. Remove the lint screen. Slide a putty knife in between the toe panel and the bottom of the door three inches from either side. this will release the clips at the top. Tilt the toe panel out at the top and lift it off the clips on the bottom.
Remove the two 1/4 in screws at the top of the metal triangular box around the lint screen. There may be one more ***** near the bottom right of the box holding a gold bracket in place. Remove that ***** or lift the box off the black metal clip at the bottom.
You can now reach the thermal fuse. It's the white plastic part with two wires on it near the blower wheel. If you have an ohm meter, you can test it now. Or remove it (one 1/4 in *****) and take it to the parts store for testing.

If your lint screen is in the top of the machine, follow these directions:
Disconnect power. Remove the lint screen. Remove the two Phillips screws under the lint screen handle.
Pull the dryer away from the wall about 2 feet or more. Disconnect the vent pipe from the bottom of the dryer. Remove the nine 1/4 in screws holding the back panel on, along with the small metal cover. Lift and remove the back panel.
You can now reach the thermal fuse. It's the white plastic part with two wires, close to the blower wheel. If you have an ohm meter, you can test it now. Or remove it (one 1/4 in *****) and take it to the parts store for testing.
While you're back there, be sure to clean out the long metal box that the lint screen goes into (four more 1/4 inch screws.)
