    The design is differnt between some GE hotpoint dryers if You could give me a model number I could probably explain better, most older models have two screws on upper face, but if you are trying to remove the Upper area where Timer is then that also has several screws which are accessed by visual or underneath. I would love to help but too many factors.

Unplug the appliance from the wall socket then to take the lid of the machine off. This can be tight to come off, take the screws out of the rear then palms of the hands, a fairly heavy thump on the front corners is normally enough to get the lid to slide rearwards, then you can lift it off.

Look along the top edge and you'll find a couple of screws at the corners, remove these.
Take out the water container and remove the hidden screws from there.
The facia is now free to come away from the front panel.
There are some plastic clips holding it so be careful not to break them. It just takes a bit of manouvering and twisting to get the facia released.
Once this is released you should be able to remove the led display panel and pcb. I hope this helps. Thank you

In the front of dryer there are 2 equal indentations equally spaced from edges. with a flat headed screwdriver push in and up at the same and you will raise 1 side of top. repeat on other edge and lift top and rest it against wall so it doesn't go head over heels and start to break things

How do I get the top off my White Knight CL447WV Tumble Drier?


In reality, most of these aged appliances take quite some amount of force to get apart after they have been together for years. The model you listed is accessed from the top after the lid is removed for many repairs.

Removal of plastic face panel


usually not. Take the knobs off, they pull off and look for screws under them. Check the back of the panel to make sure there are no screws holding it on also

Need to clean out dryer vent...do not have manual for PALE956EAW is there a way to remove front bottom panel?


there are 2 screws near the floor that remove then pull down and out on the panel,then you can pry up on top cover at the front to raise top cover then lean this back against a wall so you dont stretch and break the wires to clean out the top area too,if you need to go further to clean you can remove drum belt and door then remove screws holding door frame and remove then you have the entire unit accessable

Need to replace dryer belt on maytag LDG7500AAW. Do not have manual, how do you remove front panel?


you have to take the screws off the back first, then you should be able to see along the inside top a few more screws that hold the top on , be careful when you release the top that you dont break the wires to the switches , then you shouldn't have to take the front off ( because sometimes the drum falls ) but try and wiggle the belt between the front and the drum, center it and grease the gears down there while you have it open or you'll have to do that later. Then put the top on make sure you dont catch the wires, then back

Dry Stop Working after My son put super wet towels in the dryer. Dryers display will turn on, but will not start.


is it a Bosch dryer, if it is then the belt break switch tripped:


To reset the switch unplug the dryer, remove the power cable and back cover completely. two screws holding back cover are under the top cover which is held on with two screws at the rear. Remove the screws then pull top cover back and then lift it off. Remove last two screws and take off the full back cover . On the front of the motor you should see two white wires going into the safety switch for the belt breaking. Push the button on the left to reset the switch (you probably will hear a click) Do not push the right button as that is what got tripped originally . Good Luck Tim

Hilti TE 10 stopping and starting, suspect bushes need changing. How do I get to bushes? Removed x3 front screws and switch grub screw but drill will not pull apart. Don't want to force it incase something...


To get to the brushes all you need to do is remove the 3 screws on the back handle of the tool. No need to seperate the motor from the gear housing. Pull the back cover off and you have access to the brushes

You will be able to fix this, it will take about 2 hours.Buy two thermostats for £10 from a 'local' repair shop.These components look rather like cylindrical bits of plastic wearing tin hats but one is twice the size of the other, the larger being about 2 cm in diameter, and they DON'T look identical. The part numbers (for my WD860) are: HPT 1605 160 and HPT 1604 802.

1. You’ll need to use a combination of finesse and brut force to get the lid off of the machine. It is secured by two screws at the rear but has troublesome plastic hooks inside, half way down either side, that stop the lid from riding up at the front. The process is to remove the screws and then pull back and up to ‘unhook’ the internal brittle plastic hooks. I found this scary and difficult, cracking sounds were off putting and I did break to tips of the plastic hooks a little but they still seem to work ok. Be careful and wiggle it gently from side to side is the only advice I can offer.

2. Once inside it gets a bit easier. You should be able to see a metal snail-shaped object bolted to the top of the drum with various electrical connections – this is the dryer and within it are the two thermostats. What you’ve got to do is remove/unplug all the electrical connections from the top dryer, of course, make a diagram first as you’ll need to put them all back after. You then need to unbolt/unscrew the top half of the dryer and remove this from the machine – this is another fiddley bit and I was lucky again here to have a very small ratchet socket set which made the hard to get to bolts/screws accessible. Note: some of the screws are the Torx type (imagine a more complex Phillips’s type screw). You’ll need to have a Torx type screw driver head that’ll fit the small socket tool to undo these.

3. Once the top of the dryer unit is off, you just need to remove the thermostats – one is fixed in by screws on the outside of the dryer top and the other is fixed in by screws on the inside. Screw in the replacement thermostats, then clean off the fluff and burnt fluff from both halves of the dryer and you’re there – put the machine back together.
