When I posted the question, I had not removed the front of the dryer. I thought the gas burner etc. had to be accessed from the back. As soon as I removed the front of the dryer I realized it was all up front and accessable. Conversion was straight forward from that point.

I need to replace valve coils on Whirpool LGR3624JQ2 Gas Dryer. Problem is I don't know how to access the coil. How do I remove the front panel. Thanks NAL


Disconnect power to the dryer then pull the lint filter out and remove the screws near the opening.

Insert a putty knife blade or similar tool between the top panel and the front panel to release the clips securing the top panel to the top of the front panel on both sides as shown then rotate the top panel up to the rear of the dryer.

Disconnect the door switch wire harness then remove the front panel screws and lift the panel up and off the cabinet.

You now have access and view of the burner assembly where the gas valve coils are located.

Disconnect the wires from the coils and remove the screws from the bracket then lift the coils out. Slide the new coils in then secure it with the bracket and reconnect the wire harnesses.

Reinstall the front panel from the bottom then up and secure it to the cabinet. Rotate the top panel down back into position then push it against the top of the front panel until the securing clips engage and snap into place

Maytag mdg5500aww gas dryer sensor


First of all shut off the power by pulling out the plug.

If you are sure of the sensor issue then you need to remove four screws on the inside of the door. Two screws are located on the left and two on the right, look at the hinge and you will find two. The door will lift out when you remove the screws. When the screws are out of the front, the front panel can be remove by pulling on the outside surface.

IGNITER LIGHTS BUT NO FLAME


Hi, You will need to change the coils on top ogf the gas valve. If this is a Whirlpool model with rear panel access here is how: UNPLUG the dryer. This model you need to remove the two screws under the lint screen. Now use a flat blade screw drive and insert it in the gap between the top and the front panel and pry the top up. Now locate and remove the screws on the inside of the front panel in upper corners. The front should lift off. You will see the two black coils on the gas valve. When you remove the three wire coil, make sure the sleeve inside it gets put back on the post the coils slides onto.
If this model is a front access model, just remove the lower front panle and the valve is on the right side
If I can assist you further, please let me know.

Thanks
Vic

Dryer Paddle Loose


Take the four screws, out of the door and remove it. The front of the dryer will fold down and lift off, you will be able to see in side the dryer. If you want to lift the top remove the screws that are now exposed. Along with the brackets the top will now lift up.

This should allow you to access the tumbler.

Remove front panel of maytag MDG7400Aww gas dryer


You have to remove the front panel first to access the clip that holds the front of the top down. Instructions:

crosstip medium screwdriver
1/4 inch socket
5/15 inch socket
  1. UNPLUG DRYER
  2. TURN OFF GAS
  3. Disassemble by taking apart the FRONT of the dryer:

    a. Remove the door and opposite side door plugs (crosstip screws)

    b. Remove the front panel - this exposes sheet metal bolts (5/16 inch) some with crosstip on left and right of unit. Set panel aside (right side) WITHOUT unplugging wires

    c. Unscrew all the exposed bolts.

    d. Top bolts left and right secure the unpainted metal hooks which secures the top of dryer. Unscrew these bolts and wiggle the metal retainer hooks off. Lift top and support to create 6 inch gap in the front (top unit hinges in back and has electrical connections - do NOT disconnect wires)

    e. Release belt from pulley by reaching left and under drum (this is out of sight)

    f. gently lift out drum and belt and set aside
  4. This has exposed the interior.

Maytag dryer model mdg5500aww


OPEN THE DOOR AND REMOVE THE TWO SCREWS IN THE MIDDLE OF EACH HINGE. LOOK AT THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF THE OPENING AND REMOVE TWO SCREWS FROM THAT SIDE ALSO. PULL FRONT TOWARD YOU FROM THE TOP. IT IS HINGED AT THE BOTTOM. ONCE THE TOP IS FREE, LIFT THE FRONT OFF THE HINGES. THERE IS A CLIP HOLDING THE TOP TO THE CABINET AT THE FRONT CORNERS. REMOVE THE SCREWS HOLDING THE CLIPS IN PLACE AND SWING THE CLIPS TO THE LEFT AND RIGHT TO REMOVE THEM. THE TOP SHOULD SWING UP AND TO THE BACK AT THIS TIME. IT IS HINGED AT THE BACK.
