    I also know about the 2 screws in the top under the lint filter. I took it out & took out the screws & the top wouldn't lift off. it seems like it's stuck under the control panel. Do i have to take that off too?

    I got that far last night. Luckily I worak at an appliance service co. & can get the part from either a scrapped unit we get to recycle or I can get it wholesale. Nice!! I will probably need a little more help with the positioning of the belt when i put it on as I'm not a tech just a glorified secritary! :) Will folloe up when the part is located...

You have to pop the top with a putty knife. That will get you access to the scews holding the front on. from then it is relatively easy.

Dryer spins but no heat


Conventional dryers are usually accessed by removing the rear panel. I would think these would be the same. Unplug the dryer and remove wires from heating element. Test for continuity with an ohmmeter. If there is no reading, the heating element is bad. Disconnect wires from the hi temp thermostat and test with an ohmmeter and if no reading it is bad. Sears has these parts available.

How do I open the drum area of Kenmore model #66712694 dryer to clean it?


First you need to determine if your dryers blower housing and other components are located in the rear of the dryer or underneath the dryer. The quickest and most simple way to do this is to look at the front of the dryer and see if it is one complete front or two pieces. There will be a small gap completly across the front about a quarter way up if its two. If its two pieces then your work is going to be up front. You remove the lower kickplate with a flat screw driver and pressing the clips, one on each side in the groove. If its a solid front then you'll need a 1/4 " driver or drill with 1/4" socket, adapter, etc. From the rear of the dryer, there are about nine 1/4 inch screws you take off to access the area your looking for. Hope this helps, good luck. Now to look around the drum area, it also depends on if its one or two pieces. If one, remove the lint trap and take the two phillips head screws then take a flat head and pop the top up. Then inside, top front left and right sides there are two screws, either 5/16" or 1/4" screws you need to remove to pull the front off. If two pieces you'll have to pop the top as earlier, but you'll have to remove the kickplate, then two additional screws at the lower portion of the top piece as well as the top.

Kenmore dryer hums/heats up, but drum does not spin!


Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Yank out the tub. Clean the junk out (send me the coinery) oil the wheels and Idler with temp resistant zoomoil from ace hardware. Use this guide to replace dat belt Kimosabe:

Dryer blows cold air but no heat


The heating element is in the back of the dryer. Sometimes there is a small access panel that will allow you to check the terminals to the heating element. You will need an ohm meter or multimeter to check.
