Removing the front panel on a Bosch WTV76100US dryer

I have to break down a Bosch dryer to get it into the engine room of my boat. Got it all apart except for the front facia which seems to be held on by a screw under a vent panel that won't come off.

1. Open dryer door and remove the phillips head screws at the 5 and 7 O'Clock positions. 2. Remove three screws at very back, allowing top cover to be moved back about an inch and lifted off. 3. remove screw at top left and top right from front top panel. 4. pull plastic front panel along top edge to release front top panel. (watch for sharp edges) 5. Swing top up and over onto top of dryer. 6. 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: Amana NEW7200TW (1 year old) runs, but stopped heating.

Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

To answer the question regarding access to servicing your model of dryer, it is done from the front. You'll want to re-install any screws/fastener's removed from the back before you proceed. Some dryer's can be serviced from the back...not your's.

**Turn off the power by way of shutting off the breaker at the service panel or unplugging from the wall**

Starting with removing the "kick plate" or "toe panel". The top can also be removed from the front, that requires unscrewing the two screws at either side of the control panel and "flipping" it back to reveal the screw's which hold the top in place. (move the unit out from the wall a few inches for clearance of the wall so you don't damage the control panel or the wall)

If you look closely to the seam where the kick and main front panel meet you'll see clip's at either end. With the aid of a flat screwdriver or puddy knife, push in slightly on these clip's (one at a time) as you pull the kick forward gently. The panel should pull forward on both sides and is then held in place by way of hinge bracket's/clip's at the bottom and will pull off easily.

With the top and front "kick plate" removed you can now remove the entire front panel if necessary. To do this...Undo the spring's from the door hinges. Loosen the screw's at either side supporting the panel (don't remove them, just back them out slightly) then move up to the top of the panel. On the inside of the cabinet facing the front panel will be a screw on either side you must remove completely. While you are removing these upper screws, lean into the panel or have someone support it as it will fall forward when the screws are removed as well it put's less stress on the screws allowing them to be removed with less effort.

**Before pulling the panel off completely take a picture or make a drawing of the location of the door switch wires, you will then need to remove the wires and the panel should be free to remove.**

Hope that explain's the procedure enough for you to move forward. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Good luck and thank's for visiting "fixya" today for your repair tips.

Loud, low (bass) noise, not coming from the vent or the heating element

Most probably caused by one of the belts being frayed and about to break. You might want to replace the small drive belt (00096426) first as it does the most work of transferring the motor power to the shaft causing the drum to rotate. A worn belt can cause a low frequency hum and potentially slow down drum rotation as it slips on the hubs. Replacing the large drum belt requires a lot more work than the drive belt because you must remove both the front and side panels of the dryer; whereas, the drive belt is accessed by removing the right side panel.

The top of the unit pops off, you have to pry it up. Be careful not to damage the paint. Then when it is off, you can see the screws that hold the front control panel on.

I just got a Bosch WAS20160UC AXXIS front load washer with BOSCH WTV76100US AXXIS dryer. the washer and dryer slide across the floor. I then put a rubber mat under it but it did the same thing. What is...


Welcome to FixYa.

i'll start with the most obvious, but still quite common oversight, have you remove the shipping bolts from the rear of the washer ?


The next thing to pay close attention to is detergent usage. Regardless of what one may have been told, "He" detergent has to be used, and even then not too much.

Look for this symbol when buying/using detergents...


These are the most common things that can (and DO ) contribute to the machine acting in the manner you've described.

If neither of these things apply to your situation, please let me know and I'll be glad to assist you further.

Thank you for choosing FixYa and Good luck.

Cleaning out the dryer vent in the front of the dryer

The easiest and effective way is to get a long brush and use it from the top down with your vacuum hose to catch the lint as it breaks free.

If you are really adventurous here is how to take it apart...

- Remove the lower panel in front by pressing on the release springs, they are in the slot between the upper and lower front panels about 3 inches from each side. Lift and remove the panel.

- Snap the end caps off of the console on both sides.

- Remove the two screws that point down in the console into the top

- Swing the console up

- Remove the 3 screws under the console that hold the top to the back and slide the top toward you and lift off

- Look inside and tilt your head down like you are looking back at yourself. Locate and disconnect the wires to the door switch. Mark which ones went where.

- Remove the 2 screws from the front panel on the bottom first, then the top and pull the front panel off.

- From here you can clean around the motor the bottom and take the door apart to clean the lint chute.

I scuffed the door handle on my Bosch dryer. It is plastic. Can I touch up or get a new handle> Model WTV76100US

You could try sanding with a very fine grit sandpaper. If that does not work satisfactorily a new handle is in order.

Very loud squeaky noise on Kenmore dryer model 417.80042990. Seems like it's coming from the back. Is there a way to lubricate it?

yes there is you'll have to get high temp lubricant or grease. Here is how to get to it. first check this site out to help you see and recognize the parts Check out items 1851 and 774936. This is were you need to get to. First remove small access panel on rear after unplugging from power source of course. Reach in and undo belt. Then look at the very bottom of your front panel if you see two screws lay the dryer down on it's back and remove the screws. Lift the bottom a bit to see door switch wires undo them and remove front panel it will hook in at the top under the main top. Then unscrew the 3 screws inside the drum in the middle and pull drum out. note the 2 items I have given you item 1851 slides out of the cup(774936) apply high temp grease and replace item 1851 and put it back together. If you don't have the 2 screws at the very bottom of the front panel for removing then the other way to open it is by prying the main top up with a wide flat screw driver toward edges between main top and front panel then removing 2 screws on the inside of the front panel toward top then unhooking at bottom. To facilitate belt replacement I use small scotch tape pieces to tape the belt to the drum so that when you have it back together and you re-stand the dryer you can reach in from the rear access panel to re-attach belt to motor and tensioner. If this scares you too much you may call me and i would be glad to walk you through it. My name is James 417-926-0106. I hope these directions help and you have a successful fix. This type of problem is very simple. Do not forget to re-connect your door switch wires or it won't run at all. Good Luck
