Heres a link to the schematic. Youll have to start by taking the top off. There are 3 screws on the rear top that hold it on. After you take them off, you should be able to slide the top off by pushing it back. In the diagram youll see the screws in the top front that hold the front panel on. Also when you open the front door there are a couple screws that need to come off the face. From there the front panel should pull off. Hope that helps. Dave www.washermd.com

How do i convert from natural gas to LP or Propane?


You need the LP gas conversion kit: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/Appliance-Parts/whirlpool-lp-gas-con-item-number-ap4300853.aspx . Other sources may exist. This includes a replacement orifice and a spring and the installation instructions. The orifices are swapped with a small wrench. The spring fits inside the regulator inside the blocking plug.

You will also need to remove the cap from the regulator and turn it over. This makes the regulator compatible with LP gas. It's easy to tell which side is which - each side is labeled.

However, the conversion kit should be installed by a professional trained for the job. Your local LP dealer should be able to help you find a repair person with the skill. (Improper installation could result in a gas leak.)

I hope this helps.

Dryer not heating


  • There are two house circuits/fuses in an electric dryer's circuit.
    If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
  • Outlet wired incorrectly.
    Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
  • Gas supply valve to a gas dryer is not open.
    Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
  • LP gas supply tank is empty or there has been a utility interruption of natural gas.
    Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
  • Dryer does not have enough air supply to support the gas burner.
    The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
  • Incorrect cycle or temperature has been selected.
    If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.

The front panel clips usually hold by friction. Just pull gently on the upper corners and it should hinge down.
