SOURCE: removing front panel

The first thing to do is to remove the plastic plug on the lower left front corner of the dryer. it is just a small square plastic piece. This way you can see if the ignitor is glowing red. But to answer your question, You remove the 2 screws underneth the lint filter. Then the top will just pop up with a screwdriver. Then there is 2 5/16 screws holding the front on. (this is for the most common kenmore. If this sounds all wrong i will tell how the other model comes upart.

Unplug light and door switch. 7. remove four screws at top of large lower panel. 8. lift panel up a bit and off. 9. unplug sensor plug at bottom allowing panel with door to be set aside. 10. gas dryer has dime sized high limit thermostat on left front side of burner chamber. Has two wires on it, with a small pin in the center. Push the pin in. Reassemble and clean out vent, eliminating flexible venting, replacing with rigid aluminum piping and elbows. Outside vent should have a four inch vent flap opening, not just a two inch if it is that style.

SOURCE: Whirlpool dryer front panel

I located a video on youtube.com free of charge. I removed the lint screen, and removed the two screws located in the lint screen housing. Then I pryed the top off near the front of the dryer, which has two clips. Then I remove the two screws locate on the top of the front panel, but they are located on the inside. I removed the door lid swich by removing the two screws. Lastly, I pulled the front panel outward and pulled up lightly. The front panel was off. The issue I had was the dryer would heat up and then got cool after five minutes. The solution was to replace the coils. Important point is that the coils ohm readings were within specifications, but I did located information on the web that indicated this was a potential solution to the issue, and I replaced the coils even though the resistances were within specification. Total cost $22.95 plus tax.

Be sure to unplug the machine from the mains,

1.-Remove the top cover of the machine, very straight forward.
2.-Unclip the universal coupling from the main timer to the back of the knob.
3.- The whole knob assembly is held in place by a backing plate.
4.- There are 2 clips at the top of this backing plate raise them and the backing plate and knob can be pulled out.
5.- there is a plastic clips but be careful not to break it.


Your ffeed back and ratting are so important for me. thank you

The knob breaks when it has been turned in the wrong direction several times. It's a safety device so as not to damage the main timer.

How to remove the front panel of my lg dryer


  • Hey Nicholas Coccovizzo


    Unplug the dryer's 3-prong electrical cord from the power outlet.


  • Pull the dryer away from the wall and turn to one side to access the back of the appliance.


  • Remove the screws at the top of the dryer on the back panel.


  • Push the cover of the dryer from the front toward the back to disengage it from the cabinet, then lift the front of the cover up a few inches and toward the back at an angle.


  • Remove the two screws inside the front corners that attach the cover to the control panel. this will disconnect the cover from the front control panel.


  • Unplug the control panel from the wire plugs connected to the knobs and buttons. Set aside the control panel


  • Remove the two screws that were hidden underneath the control panel. These screws hold the top of the front cabinet in place.


  • Open the dryer door in the front of the appliance and remove the screws just below the slot for the lint screen, keeping one hand braced against the front of the cabinet to prevent it from falling forward. Removing these screws will detach the front cabinet from the sides, exposing the motor, dryer drum, belts and the blower for circulating hot air


    Good Luck!

    How to disassemble LG steam dryer


    You can start by removing three screws on the lid of the dryer, slide the dryer lid off. Then if you need to remove the front, you'll need to remove steam-dispenser tray, and remove the screws there, and then on the other side of the control panel. Then once you remove the control panel assembly, the front of the machine has 4-5 more screws to remove. you'll need to disconnect the door switch, before removing the front cover of the machine, sometimes this is very firmly in place, be careful.
