Take apart a kenmore front load dryer

I have a Kenmore dryer, which the model number in my manual says it is a 417 and the number on my receipt is 26 83042. I have problems with clothes getting stuck between the drum and the front case and torn or shredded. Recently a bell from my daughters hat was jammed in there and broke off the hat. It is still between the drum and case and makes a lot of noise. First, how do I get the bell out and is there a way to prevent clothes from getting caught in between?

Re: Take apart a kenmore front load dryer

The serial number found on the door frame sticker will tell me who manufactured it for sears. I could then discribe to you how to complete the repair. sounds like the drum glides are worn. easy repair. once I know what drier it is i could even send you the part numbers. one way to quickly check is lift the drum up from inside the drier and see how much space is between the drum and the support at the front. it should be no more than 3/16 of an inch to a quarter inch.

what's the model number,kenmore doesn't make anything,if it starts with 110. it will be whirlpool made,if it's 417. it's frigidaire,if it's a whirlpool it will be a belt kit,you get the belt,rollers and pulley,if it's frigidaire made most likely it will be the rear bearing.

Dryer will not come on after setting timer and pushing start. No light when door is open.

Most likely the door switch is bad. Listen for a click when the door is just opened or closed. Noclick = bad door switch. The number you passed is NOT the model number. The model number will have 3 digits followed by a period and up to 8 more digiits after the period. i.e 110.xxxxyyyy or 110.Cxxx.yyy (examples only as it can be other numbers depending on the manufacturer.) There are other numbers starting with 417 and 665 also.
This is what I think your model number is: 11064672400

The door switch is item 41 below link: PN 3406107

Detailed view:

This manual will help you:
The top has to be opened and the front panel taken lose and tipped out to change the door switch.
The manual is not straight forward as to the sequence of remofing things but you remove the top... open the toe panel loosen the lower front panel screws and then take out the 2 upper mounting screws for the front panel to gain acccess to the door switch. POWER OFF at the CB or dryer unplugged of course!

Thanks for choosing FixYa,

Clothes get tuck on the front edge and discolors

it most probably needs to have the felt cushion on the front of the drum replaced.

Dryer making a loud skreetching noise

Sounds like either a Frigidaire or model 417 kenmore. If it is the rear bearing has gone bad. Usually just the bearing cup needs replacing as long as you don't forget to use the proper grease.
