I need to clean out the dryer duct and inside.

I'm having a hard time get the control panel off of the front load dryer. Is there a clip or does it pop out or up. I don't want to break the panel. Please help?

How do I remove the lid off of a GE dryer


Try: http://www.appliancerepair.net/clothes-dryer-repair-4.html

They can probably help, especially if you have a reason to take the top off and it is not performing properly.

Washer does not drain or spin. don't know how to release the plastic release latches to access the lid switch.


Hello,
On that stack washer/dryer the wayto get to lid switch is
remove diagonal panel between washer and control panel
in the back of washer top will either be 2 brass colored clips or in the very back egde of top will be 2 5/16th inch hexhead screws
for clips place a small screwdriver in front of that clip and pop clips off and slide top forward
for the screws remove screws from behind top in the left/right corner..pull top forward a bit and lift up a little the plug for the lid switch will be in front right side..squeeze the release for that plug,unplug swicth plug then remove top

in both cases lid switch asm. will be on right side of top on the underpart of it

I need to replace the water level switch. I don't know how to remove the control panel cover


Hello, If its a top load there are screws either on top of the back panel or two screws one in each corner of the bottom rear control or clips in the front where you slide a putty knife under each corner and pop it up.

Need to know how to change heating coil in white westinghouse dryer model number wer211eso


The link below discusses disassembly of models similar to yours. The main difference is that the manual covers models with front controls whereas yours has top controls.

Unplug dryer. Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.

Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior.

Continue with "Removing the drum" on page 69. Having removed the drum exposes the heater behind it and safety thermostats above the heater shroud. The heater is generally purchased and replaced as a coil only not as a complete assembly as described in step 4 of page 72. Look for a break in the coil by touching all sections until found. If the break is not found check thermostats, motor switch at back of motor and heat contacts in timer for open circuits. Repair as necessary.

Reverse above process to reassemble.

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. Belt routing pic

I have a Whirlpool Front load dryer. The motor comes on and the drum turns once and stops. If I manually turn the drum forward just a little bit it will do the same thing....one rotation and stop.


If the drum is kinda hard to turn then you may need to get inside the dryer and 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. Get the drum out and check the wheels and idler assembly. Some of newer dryers have a crappy sliding type idler. I replace that with a generic on with a wheel. I use high temp resistant zoomoil from the hardware store($2). You can also oil the motor if it is stiff but you will have carefull make some oil ports. The manufacturer does not provide any. Zoomoil works well in these motors. hey it might save you a few bucks. It is worth a shot.

Replace the motor, the run winding is shot.It is not hard to replace the motor. The blower has reverse threads(righty loosy). The motor has a quick connect(no wiring needed). 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.Get the idler loose and remove the drum. Clean it all up and replace the motor. I can do it in 20 minutes. It is simple and uncomplicated. Go for it.
