How do I disassemble the front lower cover on my kenmore dryer


Hello Charlie;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

You are correct. There are clips.

Using a stiff putty knife insert it approximately 3.5" - 4" from the ends of the bottom cover depressing the locking snaps downwards. You want to shine a light in the crack and ensure the putty knife blade is above the black snapping apparatus, depress it down and open that end of the cover. Do the same thing for the other end. There are only two locking tabs that hold this cabinet's panel in place, one is located on each end 3.5"-4" from the end of the panel.

Just make sure your putty knife has a stiff blade or else it will not provide the rigidity needed to dislodge and depress these locking means downwards. Once again, the knife blade needs to slide in, above these locking mechanisms. You can easily see this with a flashlight.

There are only two locking mechanisms on this Kenmore heavy duty capacity 90 series clothes dryer bottom cover. One on each end about 3.5" - 4" from the end of the panel

How do I disassemble my dryer?


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You'll Need:

* Putty Knife
* Screwdriver

*
Step1
Unplug the dryer and move it away from the wall. This will provide work space around the dryer.
*
Step2
Open the lint trap door and remove the two screws with a screwdriver. Pull out the lint screen.
*
Step3
Remove the console by unscrewing the four screws that connect it to the top. With the screws removed, disconnect the wiring harness and set the console aside.
*
Step4
Insert a putty knife between the top and front panel 2 inches from the corner. Press in to release the holding clip and pull up on the top panel to remove it from the clip.
*
Step5 With your hands, lift up on the corner to disengage the top from the remaining holding clips. Set the top aside.
Step6 There are two screws at the top of the front panel that secure it to the side panels. Remove the two screws with a screwdriver.
Step7. If equipped with a toe panel, insert a putty knife at the top center of the panel. Press in and release the retaining clip and pull the toe panel off by hand.
Step8. Place boards underneath the front of the drum. The boards will keep the drum in place when removing the front panel. Remove the front panel by swinging the top out and lifting it to remove from the bottom tabs.
Step9. The rear panel is removed by unscrewing the attaching screws from the side panels and bottom with a screwdriver. The dryer is now disassembled and all parts are accessible

I am trying to replace the dryer belt. I cannot for the life of me seem to figure out how to get the top OR front panel off. Thanks for the help.


http://www.applianceaid.com/images/belt-config.JPG

If you hear a loud bang while your dryer is working, and you notice that the
drum has stopped turning, chances are the drivebelt has snapped.
Fortunately, replacing the belt is a fairly straightforward operation that
can be handled with a few simple tools.
First, unplug the dryer. Lift the lint-screen cover and pull out the lint screen
If your dryer has a lint screen on the inside of the door, skip this step.
Then remove the two screws that are under the cover. To unlatch the dryer top,
insert a thin-blade putty knife between the top and front panel,
about 2 1/2 in. in from one corner. Push in on the knife to release the locking
clip, lift the corner, then release the clip on the other side. Swing the top
up and lean it against the wall.
Next, move to the lower toe panel. Slip the putty knife between the lower panel
and the door panel at one side and twist the knife to release the clip
Then release the opposite clip and lift the panel up and off the hinge springs.
To support the dryer drum while the belt is being replaced, place scrap wood
under the front of the drum.
Loosen the two screws at each side of the bottom of the front panel.
Move to the top of the panel and remove the screws from the inside of the
cabinet that hold the front panel to the sides.
Slide the old belt off the drum.
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Installing the belt
Lean the front panel out slightly and allow the drum to rest on the scrap wood
support. Drop the new dryer belt between the front panel and the drum, and
loop it over the drum. Then, lift the drum slightly while pushing the front
panel back into position.
Replace the screws at the top inside of the front panel, tighten the lower panel
screws and remove the scrap wood from under the drum. Check to make sure that
the rear drum seal fits properly over the lip on the rear bulkhead.
Position the new belt where the old belt was, with the grooved side of the belt
facing down.
Now, move to the motor area and pull out the old belt. To route the new belt
around the idler and drive pulley, first pass the entire belt, doubled up,
under the idler pulley. Then, push the idler belt toward the motor, slip the
belt around the motor pulley and release the tension on the idler pulley.

Open the dryer door and rotate the drum counterclockwise a few times to make
sure the belt is tracking properly. Lower the top and press down at each
corner to engage the clips. Lift the lint-screen cover, replace the two screws
and reinstall the lint screen. Finally, secure the lower front panel and turn
on the dryer for a test.

How do I get the front panel off? I removed the clips on the bottom but it looks like there are clips toward the top on the sides. Do I go in through the back?


Insert a putty knife or a butter knife in the gap between the top and front about 4 to 6 inches from both sides. Depress the clips and raise the top and tilt back.

Did a load last night but will not start today. checked 30 amp circuit breaker but not tripped. replace 30 amp circuit breaker anyway. checked outlet for AC and seems OK for 220 volt. dryer is showing no...


There are no fuses inside dryers except thermal fuses, and they don't run the light. Check the connections where the cord hooks to the dryer. Is this a digital control dryer or does it have a knob? Some of the digital ones use the control box to run the light too, otherwise it must be a wiring problem.

How does one remove the lower front access panel on a Whirlpool gas dryer mode TEDL680AN?


Use a putty knife to separate the smaller bottom panel from the upper front panel.
About 2 inches in from each side there is a spring clip. Press the spring clip with the putty knife while pulling out on the edges of the smaller lower panel. It hinges down once it is free from the clips.

Can't figure out how to get toe panel off on ?Kenmore HE4 dryer


The toe panel comes in various configurations. If yours has the retaining clips along the top seam as you mention, the easy way of getting them to release is to place a putty knife in the seam to depress the clip while pulling out slightly on the toe panel at the same time. Make sure you are inserting the putty knife on TOP of the clip and pushing DOWN. If you place it UNDER the clip it will not release. Repeat this procedure on the opposite clip as well. The panel should pop loose. On some toe panels there are screws holding the panel in place. Double check to make sure. I hope this helps you.
