How do I fix an f22 error code?

On the back of the blower housing(fan that makes air move through the dryer), there is a thermal fuse called a thermistor. The F22 error code you're getting means that this safety fuse has opened and must be replaced. The part# is 8577274 and is designated #40 on the exploded parts diagram. This is an INVOLVED repair. Most of the thermal fuses can be reached by removing the rear cover of the dryer and are located on the heater box. This one, however, is accessed by removing the entire front of the dryer, including the front bulkhead assembly to expose the blower housing. Here is the exploded parts view from Parts Select, their part# is PS993287 and costs 20 bucks and change, If you aren't comfortable with this level of disassembly, DEFINITELY call for a service tech to do the repair!

Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers Front Panel and Top...

Most of the internal components of Maytag Square-Front (1998) and Sloped-Front (1999) Dryers can be accessed with the removal of the front panel and lifting of the top cover. The top cover can only be lifted after the front panel is removed. Make sure that power to the machine is disconnected prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The first step is the removal of the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly. Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip. Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

The internal components of the dryer can now be accessed. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel in reverse of the removal steps.

This procedure is also applicable to Maytag Neptune Front-Load Washers. The only difference is the dispenser bezel removal.

Clicking noise in blower wheel area

Remove the rear cover and get the filter chute off there. Clean her up. This dryer is no different than other dryers with filter in the top.

The belt attached to the blower wheel on my Whirlpool Cabrio dryer has come off. How do I reattach it?

Unplug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer from the electrical outlet before installing a new belt. Remove the lint filter from underneath the lint filter cover. 2 Unfasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver, setting the screws in a safe place. Slide a putty knife between the dryer top and the cabinet near the front, lifting up on the knife to detach the top from the plastic clips on the cabinet.3 Flip the dryer top back against the wall so it is resting on the rear hinges. Locate the screws on the inside of the upper front panel near the top.4 Unfasten the screws on the inside of the upper front panel with a screwdriver. Lift the panel up off the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet. 5 Unplug the door switch connector from the back of the upper front panel by hand, setting the panel out of the way. Slide the putty knife between the lower front panel and the dryer cabinet, pulling the knife away from the cabinet to detach the panel from the plastic clips on the cabinet.6 Place a couple of wood blocks under the lip of the dryer drum to hold it in place. Locate the idler arm near the motor at the base of the dryer.7 Move the idler arm forward to relieve the tension on the belt. Take the belt off the motor and idler arm pulleys, lifting the drum up and sliding the belt off the drum.8 Install a new belt around the dryer drum, looping it over the idler arm and around the motor pulley. Move the idler arm back into position to add tension to the new belt.9 Remove the wood blocks from underneath the lip of the dryer drum. Plug the door switch connector into the back of the upper front panel by hand.10 Slide the upper front panel over the metal clips on the front of the dryer cabinet, securing the top of the panel with screws. Fasten the lower front panel to the front of the dryer cabinet, pressing the panel onto the plastic clips by hand.11 Flip the dryer top back down onto the top of the cabinet, pressing down to secure the top to the plastic clips on the cabinet. Fasten the screws underneath the lint filter cover with a screwdriver.12 Slide the lint filter back under the lint filter cover by hand. Plug the power cord of the Whirlpool dryer into the electrical outlet.

    The dryer display for the time is displaying "AF".

    "AF" means there is an air flow problem within the venting system. There is either a restriction in the hose, outside vent cover, the front vent, or maybe the lower blower assist isn't rotating.

    How do I change out the heating element on my kenmore oasis electric dryer model 110.67032600

    Use a putty knife to press against NUMBER43.
    This is a newer cabinet but basically busts down like an older one.f4825eb.jpg9b58516.jpgAfter the front is removed the dryer magically becomes exactly like this older model here: Cabrio dryer service manual. Similar to oasis.
