Hello, there are 2 hold down clips about 2 inches in from either side that hold the top to the front panel. Take a putty knife or a flat head screw driver and pry the top up on both sides. now you have access to the 2 screws that are located about 6 inches down from the top on either side, remove these and the front will now come off and you can change the glides. good luck

Remove the screws on each side holding the front on, each under the drum and remove the belt , now you came remove the drum, and get to the idler pulley spring. Re Assembly is opposite of removal.

I have a maytag electric dryer (model SDE4606AYW) which is making a constant screaching sound. Researching websites, it looks like it could be the bearings and/or guide rollers that have worn out. Please...


ALWAYS UNPLUG YOUR DRYER BEFORE STARTING ANY REPAIRS
I agree, I think it is the drum rollers.

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer by removing the screws at the top corners of the machine, the bottom should clip to each other,also remove the lint filter, and the two screws that hold the housing to the top of the dryer.
This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

No heat coming out tested power have 220 no continuity between leads figure element burned out how do you replace?


In general, remove the cabinet top, then the cabinet front. This should give access to the drum which needs to be removed. You need to release the drive belt tension by accessing the lower back panel to get to the motor where the tension device is located. Remove the screws in the center back of the drum and take out the drum. This should expose the heater assembly along with a thermostat switch and a safety high-temperature switch. Both switches should be 'on' when cold. The element(s) should read fairly low 'ohms' if good. You can sometimes just replace the heater wire, or replace the whole assembly--your choice. Re-assemble in reverse order. Check the condition of the drive belt and outer drum bearings (rollers or sliders) while you have it apart. Hope this helps!

Unplug the dryer.
Remove the lint filter.
Remove the 2 screws at the lint filter slot.
Place a flat blade screwdriver under the front edge of the top and pry it up. Remove the 2 screws holding the front panel to the cabinet on the right and left sides just inside the cabinet.
Replace the door switch assembly and reverse the above order to re-assemble the dryer.

THE GAS VALVES AND COILS ASSEMBLY WILL BE ON THE BOTTOM RIGHT. UNPLUG AND TAKE THE SCREWS OFF THE BRACKET AND REPLACE COILS. CHECK FOR CONTINUITY ON COILS, IT SHOULD READ 1.3 TO 1.9 OHMS. THE ONE WITH THREE TERMINAL, CHECK OHM FROM MIDDLE TERMINAL TO OUTSIDE TERMINALS.

I need to change the belt for my Kehmore Series 80 dryer


HI. this guide will help you replace this worn belt. make sure you have safely unplugged this unit before initiating this procedure.



1 From the top of the dryer, remove the lint trap. Using your screwdriver, unscrew the assembly that houses the lint screen and remove it from the dryer, setting it aside.

2 Using your screwdriver as a lever, insert it under the front right side of the dryer, between the top and the body. Press down to force the top slightly up from the body. Repeat this process on the left side, and lift the top off the dryer.

3 Remove the lower panel from the dryer by inserting the screwdriver into each side and rotating to release the clips that hold it in place. Slide your phone book under the now-exposed dryer drum so that the drum will be supported.


4 Loosen the screws at the bottom of the front cover, but do not remove them (this allows access to the belt without requiring you to remove and replace the entire front cover). Move to the top of the dryer, and remove the screws holding the front of the dryer in place. (These will be located at the top, behind the front.) Tip the cover toward you, exposing the drum, and slip the broken belt off the drum without fully removing. Slip the new belt over the drum, and lift up on the drum while returning the cover to the closed position. Replace the screws to the front cover and tighten the lower screws. Remove your phone book from its position under the drum.

5 Check the rear drum seal to the back of the dryer, and position the new belt identical to the old, with the textured side facing down.

6 Directing your attention to the motor area, remove the old belt and feed the new belt through, passing the entire belt, doubled over, under the idler pulley. Push the belt toward the motor pulley, placing the belt around it, and allow the tension to release on the idler pulley.


7 With your hand inside the dryer drum, rotate the drum counterclockwise to ensure that the belt has been properly installed. Replace the top of the dryer, exerting downward pressure for a snug fit, followed by replacing the lint screen assembly, and the lint trap, and then replacing the lower front cover.

8 Run the dryer for several minutes to ensure that the dryer is operational and that you have installed your belt correctly.

I have an lg dle7177wm dryer - i'm trying to get to the heating element to check for a circuit and am having trouble figuring out how to get the dryer apart


Try this approach.. with the dryer situated so that you can access the back of it.. look at where the top cover projects over the back..directly beneath that is 3 screws that when removed ,..should allow you to slide the top back and release it from the chassis.. Once that has been done, you should be able to remove the front panel ( after you undo the lint trap screws with the door open ).. You can tilt the front panel away from the cabinet to unhook the door switch.. than you should be able to lift the front panel assembly up and off the guides on the bottom.. Once it is set aside, you should have access to everything you need from the front.. Hope that helps...

Loud Grinding Noise when Tumbler Rotates


Ok, these GE's sometimes have a problem with the front guides bearings going bad, and then the drum starts to eat into the top of the door hole and sides. That is probably what is making your noise. Before you spend a lot of time fixing something that cant be fixed, open the dryer door and look up in each top corner of the opening. Look to be sure the drum hasnt eaten its way through that area. If so, scrap it, because it will eat your clothes badly, and the front panels are to expensive. If not, UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE PLEASE, then standing facing the dryer, open the door, and remove the two screws that are in the top of the door housing area (not the door itself, these would be up by where I told you to look for damage). These screws hold down the top. After removing these screws, lift up on the cabinet top, and pull GENTLY towards you until the top clears the console guide posts in the top rear. After removing the top, inside the cabinet, on either side and at the top, you will see a phillips head screw that holds the front to the cabinet. Remove these screws, and fold the front towards you slowly, removing any wires that may be holding up the swing out (i.e. door switch, light wires, etc., be sure you remember the way the wires reattach). When you look at the top of where the drum rides, you will see a plastic ring with smaller like plastic flat peices that the drum rides in. More than likely, you will have to replace both parts. The ring separates in the center, and is replacable (you should only have to replace the top half). The drum guides are the smaller plastic type guides that just slide in. Reassembly is reverse. Let me know if you need further help. Jim
