When you open the door you will see two philps head screws on each side. Two of the screws hold the door on. Remove the 4 screws and the front comes off.

Kenmore Electric Dryer 110.62922100/Runs but no heat


When theres no heat check these

Power from the house Check to see whether there's power getting to the dryer. Is it plugged in? Check for blown fuses or tripped circuit breakers--your dryer uses two fuses or circuit breakers. The dryer could tumble but not heat if only one of the two fuses is blown. If you have circuit breakers, one of the two circuit breakers can trip, even if the two for the dryer are connected.

Heating element Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.

Thermal fuse On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Wiring A common problem is for the main wiring connection from the house, at the dryer, to burn and break its connection. Because the dryer can still tumble with partial power, the connection may be only partially defective. You may need to replace both the power cord to the dryer and the terminal block inside the dryer that the wire is attached to.

LG dryer Model DLE3777W Very loud & rumbling, Drying times longer and not spinning as fast


Loud and rumbling usually means that at least one of the drum support rollers is not turning freely. It is a bit of work to replace them.
1. disconnect power to machine. 2. remove top by taking 3 phillips head screws out of back edge of top, then standing in front of machine, use palms of hands to sharply push top back about 2 inches and lift off. 4. remove control panel (you do not have to disconnect wires to it, just lay it on top of machine.) 5. remove screws at 4 and 8 O'clock positions behind door, screws along top edge of front panel, electrical plugs to light and door switch, and by tilting panel forward, the plug near the bottom for the sensor, allowing the front panel to be removed and set aside. 6. remove 2 phillips head screws from each side of drum support, allowing support to be lifted up about a half inch and removed, giving access to the front support rollers. 7. Release belt and remove drum to access rear drum rollers. 8. replace offending rollers and re-assemble.
I've skipped over a few minor steps which should be obvious as you go.

Dryer wont start. Seems like the motor is jammed. Drum rotates by hand, belt is ok, rollers ok. electrical smell when I tried to start. Automatic shut off/breaker kicked the switch, disabling it...


if you can move the drum by hand you have a bad motor,when was the last time you cleaned the dryer?when i clean them i blow off the motor,all kinds of junk blows off the motor even though it looks clean,it over heats the motor,also overloading will kill it,try popping the top on each side in the front,if the filter is on top remove the two phillips screws on the top panel in front of the filter,once you pop the top you'll see two 5/16 inch screws one on each side around four inches from the top,remove them,take off the door switch wires and then under the door section remove the springs and the other two screws one on each side and remove the front panel,whatch out for the door,you just removed the tention springs so it will pop open and unplug the dryer before you do this,remove the belt and take out the drum,i'm not sure what model you have,if you can't figure out how to remove the motor send the model number and i can help you to get the motor out,it's not that hard in kenmore dryers

KA dryer has been running without a lint filter. Other owner. I need to know how to take off the front and back panal to clean inside due to fire hazzard. Mdl # KGYE800TWHO . Need schematic drawing. I am...


Disconnect Power. Lift Cover on lint filter. Remove two Phillips screws taking care NOT to allow them to fall into the blower housing. Next, place a putty knife in the space between the upper and lower panel at the front of the dryer about 4 inches in from either side to push up the retaining clips while pulling on the lower panel. This will release the lower panel and give you full access to all the main components and most internal areas needing cleaning.

The only area affected by running with no lint filter is accessed by removing the rear panel. With rear off, the filter housing on the left will have several 5/16" hex head screws to be removed for access to the blower wheel and housing interior. With screws removed go to front and insert putty knife in the seam between the top and front panels about 4 inches in from both sides. Lift top at same time and raise when disengaged.The filter housing can now be moved sufficiently to vacuum the interior from the rear removing any large foreign objects first.

You have now cleaned all the dryer areas that need cleaning. Don't forget the airflow through the vent line of the house.

Reverse the above process to reassemble unit. Good Luck.

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.

Dryer won't start


It sounds like you have a blown thermal fuse. Searspartsdirect.com has a replacement kit available. Just type in your model number and the kit can be located under the "Heater" heading as item number 5 (part #LA-1053). The kit contains the hi-limit thermostat and thermal fuse. Replace both components at the same time. NOTE: Only one of the thermal fuses will be used, however. One is for a GAS dryer, while the other is for an ELECTRIC dryer. They are marked accordingly.

To access, you will need to remove the dryer front panel. This is accomplished by inserting a putty knife into the seam where the dryer top and front meet (about 2 inches in from each end) and pushing in to depress the release tabs. Disconnect the door switch wires and the front panel comes off and can be set aside (make sure you label the wires). With the front panel removed, the dryer top panel lifts up. The heating element will be located in the center-rear of the dryer behind the dryer drum.

If you require further assistance, please let me know. I hope this information is helpful to you.

NOTE: The website also includes helpful illustrations for component location and wiring diagrams. The correct wiring diagram depends on your dryer serial number. If you have questions about this let me know (send me the serial number).

There should be a removable kickplate found at the bottom of the dryer. Remove this kickplate by removing the two screws found at the bottom. Let the kickplate drop down just a little to disengage the two pins found on its top.
If your dryer has an enamelled top, you can raise it by releasing the two spring catches found under it. Use a putty knife (or some other thin and flat object) to push in on and disengage each catch.
Remove the two screws (some models will have four) that secure the bottom of the front panel. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.
If your dryer has a galvanized top, remove the screws from the front panel, and then remove the front panel itself. As you remove the front panel, disconnect the door switch and any other wiring, taking careful note of which wires are to be reconnected where.
Thats all you should gain access to the heating coil..
