Putting the neptune dryer back together

My son dropped a cheese spreader down the lint vent.  I pulled off the front and can not find the spreader.  Do you think that it went into the round area (looks like a fan)..  I also need to know how to place the thing that holds the top of the dryer in before I put the screws back.

It went to the bottom probly on the ground under the dryer, move the dryer see it isn't under it if not you can get to the section to unscrew and get it out, as far as putting it together push the back of the top in first then it will lock in then lower it down into place, put in the screws and you are done,,,,

Partial heat


when was the last time you cleaned out the dryer and vent line?all a dryer does is move air,if the dryer hasn't been cleaned it won't dry the clothes.your model has the lint filter on top,unplug the dryer,pull it out away from the wall,disconnect the vent line from the back,now pull it out so you can work on the back,first pull out the lint filter and remove the 2 phillips screws in front of it on the top panel,now go in the back and remove the back wall,on the left side you'll see the metal duct that the lint filter slides down into,remove the 4 screws and you already removed the other 2 screws on top so now you can remove the metal duct and clean it out,vac up ant lint in the back,if you have a shop vac set it up to blow and blow out the blower wheel and the heater duct on the right side,after it's all cleaned up put it back together but don't put the 2 top screws in,after you have it back together clean out the vent line,if it's a long run i use a leaf blower,stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out to the outside,just make sure the outside duct is clear,no cage or anything that will block the lint,put the vent line back on and push the dryer back,now pop the top and clean out the front of dryer,i'll send you a viideo on how to take the dryer apart.

good luck and if you know the heat is working most likely you have a block somewhere and you should do this once a year so your clothes will dry on time,if you see that it takes more time to dry your clothes this is where to start also so you don't have a dryer fire.

your lint filter is on top so unplug it,remove the lint filter and the two screws on top in front of the filter,get a screw driver,stick in into the space where the top and front meet around two iches from each corner and lift up,pop the top up,on the right side you'll see the door switch harness,get a small screw driver,stick into the harness to separate it,pull it apart and then look at the right and left side a few inches down and you'll see a 5/16 inch screw one on each side,remove them and pull up on the front panel,,pull up first on right side then left side.now reach in on the right side,stick your head inside the drum and lift the drum with right shoulder,pull up on the belt pulley and remove the belt,first look at how the belt connects to the motor so when you reinstall it you know how it goes.now lift the top and pull the drum.there's a kit that comes with the belt rollers and new pulley,change out these parts and your noise should be gone,also while you're in there vac up all the lint,put the dryer back together but don't reinstall the two screws on top,pull out the dryer and remove the vent line and back wall,on the left side remove the four screws that hold the metal duct in place,clean out the duct and vac up any lint,put that back together and the two screws on top,if the vent line is long,i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,if you clean out the dryer once a year and the vent line you'll hardly have any problems with this dryer,.watch this video and good luck,if you need any other help with any appliance let me know and hopefully we can get it done.

Newer LG front load gas clothes dryer. power hooked up dryer controls light and operate. gas hooked up and flowing. i hear the igniter light but gas doesnt stay lit. no heat. do i need a special gas dryer...


if you hear the flame light but it doesn't stay on for a long time most likely you have lint blocked up in the dryer or in the vent linepull out the lint screen filter and look down into the duct that the filter slides into,if that's blocked you can try to stick a brush down in there and pull out as much lint as you can and then get a shop vac and set it up to blow and try to blow the rest of the lint out,if this doesn't work you have to pull the front of the dryer off and clean out the duct,also vac and blow out the gas tube and the motor and vac up any lint that's in the cabinet,unplug the dryer,remove the top,then the control panel and then the front panel.put it back together and then go out side and make sure the duct is clear no cage or screen,go back inside,remove the vent line off of the back of dryer,if it's a long run to the outside stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it to the outside,put it back together and you should be fine.this should be done once a year with a gas dryer so you don't have any problems with parts or how it's running and most important you won't have a fire.if you need anymore help let me know.

My whirlpool dryer model LER4634EQ2 sometimes takes really long to dry a load of wash


most likely it's blocked with lint.all a dryer does is move air,if something is blocked the air can't move and it takes longer and longer to dry clothes.your lint filter is on top,unplug the dryer ,pull it away from the wall, disconnect the vent line,remove the back panel,on the left side you'll see a metal duct that the lint filter slides into,take that off and clean it out,first remove the lint filter and the two phillips screws that are in front of it on the top panel.now go in the back and remove the four screws that hold the duct in,clean out the duct and if you have a shop vac vac up any dust you see bakc there and then set it up to blow and blow through the blower wheel until it's clean,put the duct back into place,now if the vent line is long you can blow that out with a leaf blower,first go outside and make sure nothing is blocking the outside vent,if there's a cage or anything outside that's blocking the air from blowing out remove it and don't put it back,go back inside and blow out the vent line,put the dryer back together except the two screws in front of the filter on top,with a screw driver pop up the top lid,you'll see two 5 1/16 screws one on each side of the front panel around 2 inches down from the top,remove them disconnect the wire harness on the right side and then pull up one side at a time to remove the front panel,if you don't want to pull the drum use the shop vac to blow all the lint from in the back forwards and vac it up,put it back together and do a load,you should see a big change in the time it takes to dry the clothes.go here to see how to take dryer apart

good luck and i hope this helps,i can't see it being a part because if a part goes bad it will work or it won't,the only other thing i can think of is the cycling thermostat could be bad or if you use cling free sheets lint could be stuck on the back of the t-stat,when you're in the back and have the duct off,look to the right down low,you'll see the t-stat with four wires on it,just remove the screws,don't have to disconnect any wires and look at the back of it,clean it off if you see any white film or lint on it,i've seen this happen before.hope this helps.

How to open front of kenmore dryer to clean out lint


next time send model number, unplug the dryer,if the filter is on top remove the filter and the two phillips screws in front of the filter on the top cover,go to the front and with a screw driver pop the top up,there is a clip one on each side around two inches from each side just pop up the top,use the screw driver and slide it in between the plastic piece of the wire connector and pull apart the door switch harness on the right side,it's hard to just pull it apart,now you'll find a 5/16 inch screw one on each side around 4 inches from the top,take them out and pull the front panel up one side at a time,vac out the front of dryer,if you have a shop vac blow off the motor,alot of lint gets stuck in the motor,put that back together but don't put back the 2 screws on top,now slide out the dryer,remove the vent line and take off the back panel,on the left side you'll see the duct that the filter slides into,take out the 4 screws that hold it in and remove it and clean it out,put it back together,if the vent line is a long run from the dryer to the outside vent i use a leaf blower to blow out the vent line,check the outside to make sure nothing is blocking that,stick your hand in there or a brush and clean out the opening if it needs it.
if the filter is on the inside,remove the bottom panel,remove the lint filter,take off the duct that the filter slides into and clean it out,if you have a shop vac blow all the lint from the back forward so you don't have to remove the drum to clean it,again blow out the vent line if it's a long run.do this once a year so you don't have a fire and the dryer will run like it should and parts will last longer,good luck

My Neptune is not drying the clothes in one 90 minute time period, and it's sweating aroung the door and there is wet lint around the door,


you need to clean out the dryer,you should do this once a year so you don't have a lint fire and so this doesn't happen again,your lucky you didn't damage any parts,the dryer runs hotter than normal like this,take off the vent line,if it's a long run from the dryer to the outside i use a leaf blower to blow all the lint out of the line,make sure nothing is blocking the outside vent,now you gotta clean out the duct that's below the lint filter,if you have a shop vac it blows on the other end,i take the dryer apart when i do a clean out but you can blow the lint out,stick the nozzle in the left side and the lint will blow up and out on the right side,if you have a brush for cleaning out dryers you can stick that down in there and pull some of the lint out like that,you should take the front panel off and vac out the inside where the motor is also,blow the lint forward with the shop vac so you don't have to pull the drum out,sounds like alot of work but it isn't and your dryer will last longer,unplug the dryer,open the door and take the four screws out to take the front panel off, 2 in the door and the other 2 opposite the door screws remove the door and pull the front off

Lint trap


http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/model-display.php This will show you how your dryer is put together. The lint has gone directly to the fan, where it could affect fan performance. You would have to remove the front off the dryer, and the cover off the fan area. It's not a bad idea to clean this area once in a while.

Cleaning out dryer


Okay. If the dryer is running well, there's no need to open the dryer to clean it. Clen aou the lint filer and wuth a special brush get any lint out of the area where the lint filter goes. Run a brush or vaccuum cleaner hose or your hand up the lint tubing and get all the accumulated lint out. Don't forget the vent leading outside.

If you MUST go into the dryer to clean it, check for a repair manual online or at an appliance store. ALWAYS unplug it from any power and if it's a gas dryer be carefull with the gas line. You may have a valve to temporarily shut off the gas flow. Turn it off in case you break the line when moving the dryer, if necessary.

Depending on the model dryer you have will determine how you get in. There are usually mounting screws on the bottom or bottom front (someone had to assemble it and if they can put it together you can take it apart) that hold the sheet metal "skin" on the frame. Once you 've removed the front and are inside, you'll see if the drum rides on rollers or just on a felt seal on the front. The tension of the belt may pull the drum down so be careful and watch out for sharp edges on that sheet metal.

This would also be a good time to check the belt for fraying. If it's an electric dryer there is a heat coil. Look for loose or heat-damaged wires.

Disconnect the vent tubing from the vent in back and using a brush designed for dryers, or a vaccuum cleaner, or your hand, pull any lint out of the dryer vent hose and the dryer itself. You might lube the rollers if it has any and check if the drum rides on supports or a felt seal that might be wearing down. And give the lint filter a good cleaning. Check it for holes, tears, and other damage.

Once all the lint is gone, and you find the spare change that dropped into the bottom, and maybe found that missing sock, you reverse the process. Put it all back together, making sure the drum spins freely by hand. Reattach the vent hose, and then plug it in, (turn on the gas if applicable), and before you shove it back into place give it a test run to make sure the motor turns the drum and the heat works.

Dryer maintenance once a year will keep it clean and running well.

On the other hand if it requires special tools, or if opening it up will void your warranty, call a qualified repair technician.
