700 dryer maintenance


What information are you looking for exactly? Maintenance is basically cleaning the lint trap and making sure you have proper air flow out the back and through the ducting outside of the house. Are you wanting to take the machine apart and verify something. I'll post something for that but remember, if its not broke, don't fix it.

There are 4 different designs that used on these dryers and each one has its own specific way to access the element, blower, fuses. etc In this FAQ I will describe each design and method to access for each one. ---------------Design 1: This design for this dryer has the heating components located in the front of the machine, which means to gain access you'll have to lift the top and remove the front. You can visually verify this specific type because the lint screen is located inside the dryer requiring you to open the door to gain access to it. As with any do itself repair, always unplug the machine before you start. Here's the method of access listed in numerical order. 1) Remove the lower kick plate by pressing in the two clips, one on each side located in between the upper and lower portion of the front In doing this you'll gain access to the element, located on the right hand side facing, the high limit and thermostat fuse located on the element, the cycling thermostat, located on the blower housing, and thermal fuse, located next to the cycling thermostat. In gas models the gas coils and ignitor may be located on the left hand side facing. If changing the belt, rollers or motor, continue to step two. 2) Lift the top by placing a flat head screwdriver in between the front and the top of the dryer and pry it upwards. In some cases there are two metal clips, one on the left and one on the right, that need to be pushed forward to lift the top up. 3) With the top up and the kickplate removed take the door springs off, one on each side, and remove the door by taking out the 4 screws one upper left and right, one lower left and right, off and don't forget to disconnect your door switch-----------------Design 2 : In this design the heating components are located in the rear of the machine. All you have to do is get behind the dryer, remove the 9 1/4" screws and remove the panel. The element eill on the right had side with the two fuses located on it, the cycle and thermal fuse will be on the lower left on the blower housing. To access the belt, rollers etc, remove the lint trap on top, take out the two screws that are underneath it and using a flat head screwdriver pop the top up. Next, located the two screws that are on the upper left and right inside front of the machine that hold the front. Remove these and then you'll be able to lift and pull the dryer front completely off.--------------Design 3 : In this design the components are located in the front of the machine, but to access them you'll follow the method used in design 2 for accessing the belt, rollers, etc.take out the two screws that are underneath it and using a flat head screwdriver pop the top up. Next, located the two screws that are on the upper left and right inside front of the machine that hold the front. Remove these and then you'll be able to lift and pull the dryer front completely off. The set up will be like design one.--------------- Note: The best way to determine if your dryer is desgin 2 or 3, remove lint trap and pop the top. When you've got this done, you'll be able to look in between the inside rear wall and the rear panel and see if the element, fuses atc are there. If not it will be design 3---------Design 4 : HE, HE2, Duet, etc the way you take the top off is a little different. For these machines, there are 3 to 4 screws located on the top back side you'll need to remove, and then the dryer top can be slid back and removed. From there you'll remove the kickplate in come cases by taking the 3 or 4 screws off located at the bottom of the kickplate. With that removed you will be able to remove the front, but only after you remmove the control panel. The In some cases the components will be located in the rear like the second design.

I was told i need anew drum and felt gasket dryers 3 years old it is clonking so i dont dought it could it faulty


with out looking at it it sounds like the rollers have gone bad i believe you gain access from the rear of the unit to look at the rollers but you can remove the to by removing the 2 screws on the rear of the top and then pushing back and up on it turn the dryer on and look and see how round the tub is.if tub looks fine then stop dryer and turn drum in the direction it turned when it was running until you see where the factory welded it and see if the weld is broke or has a high spot.if these look good then the rollers are bad and you will have to remove the front by taking control panel off and the screws holding the front take note on how it comes apart because you have to put it back together.

Maytag dryer , drum not turning , belt broke


remove the two brackets on the back holding the top cver to the rear back cover. One screw is on each bracket. Next pry the top covers front section. It has hold down springs keeping it on. They snap right off. Now remover the front outer panel to gain access to the drum. You will need a new tensioner pulley and a belt to fix your dryer. The inner roller bearing is dried up and a replacement is needed with a new belt as well

How do I gain access to the motor on my Neptune dryer


Open the dryer door.
Remove four screws - two are holding the door and two are holding plastic pieces opposite the door.
With the screws released, the front pannel of the unit will tilt forward and can be removed.
With the front pannel out of the way, two metal retainers found at the top front of the dryer can be released which allows for the top of the unit to be lifted up and removed if desired.
From this point, four more screws found on the front face were removed which allowed the front ducting and front part of the drum to be removed.
The drum was pulled out (work the belt to the rear of the drum while extracting it - optionally, you can release the belt tension by reaching in and removing the belt from the idler)
The motor is accessable.

Professionals may want to pull all the screws from the side pannel and remove it for easier access.

My Kenmore HE dryer door handle has cracked. How


Carefully remove the door from the dryer by removing the screws from the hinges and lie on a flat surface face down. Lay a towel under the door to prevent scratching the door window. Remove the screws from the back of the dryer door and the hinge. The back panel should lift off exposing the screws holding the handle in place.

Searspartsdirect.com has some excellent exploded view diagrams that you can work from as well.

If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

I am trying to figure out how the cabinet to my dryer comes apart so I will be able to replace the heating element.


If your dryer has the lint screen on top of the cabinet, the heating circuits are located in the rear of the dryer. They can be accessed by removing the rear panel.

If your dryer has the lint screen in the door, the heating circuits are located under the dryer drum. They can be accessed by removing the lower panel under the dryer door. The panel comes off by inserting a putty knife in the seam, about 2 inches in on each side and depressing the release tabs. If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet model, the lower panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the lower panel.

If there is no removable panel, the entire front casing needs to come off. This is accomplished by lifting the dryer top to gain access to the screws that hold the front panel place. Use care not damage the door switch connector(s) in the process.

Lifting the top panel can be accomplished in the following ways (depending on model):

1. Grab the sides of the top panel and pull towards you while lifting up.

2. Lift the operator console first and then remove the three screws holding the top panel in place. Once the screws are removed the panel slides forward, then off.

I hope this is helpful to you. If you experience problems, please post back with your model number, so I can narow down which dryer configuration you have. Good Luck.

IF IT IS A WHIRLPOOL DRYER, A FEW YEARS BACK THEY CHANGED THE IDLER PULLEY FROM A WHEEL DESIGN TO A TEFLON GLIDE. THIS DIDN'T WORK AND THEY HAVE GONE BACK TO THE PULLEY DESIGN. IC THE BELT BROKE OR BURNED IN TWO, YOU WILL NEED TO REPLACE THE BELT AND IDLER TOGETHER. GAIN ACCESS BY REMOVING TWO SCREWS UNDER THE LINT FILTER. LIFT OUP THE DRYER TOP AND REMOVE ONE SCREW FROM EACH FRONT CORNER HOLDING THE FRONT TO THE SIDES. THEN TILT THE FRONT OUT AND LIFT OFF OF THE BOTTOM SUPPORTS. NOW YOU HAVE ACCESS TO EVERYTHING.

REMOVE THE DRUM AND INSPECT THE IDLER. IT SETS BELOW THE MOTOR PULLEY AND KEEPS TENSION ON THE BELT.

Door handle


I bought a handle and took a chance that I would figure it out. It turns out to be pretty simple. Open the dryer door and you will see 10 phillips head screws on the back of the door. There are also torx(star shaped) screws. Remove only the phillips head screws. This will separate the plastic outer ring from the door. On the back of the plastic ring are 2 screws that hold the handle. Remove the screws, replace the handle and put the ring back on the door. Put the 10 screws back and your done.
