SOURCE: Remove front panel - no heat and buzzing sound

Hi, If the lint screen is at the top of the dryer, remove the screws located at the lint screen. Then pry the top by inserting something flat into the gap between the top and the front panel. Now locate the screw inthe upper inside corners and remove them. Now the front will lift up and release from the cabinet.
If the lint screen is inside the door, the lower half front panel will release and let you see under the drum.
I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

SOURCE: Dropped pen into lint trap. Now Dryer makes a screeching noise.

The pen has fallen into the blower housing and is hitting the fan blades.

Unplug the dryer!! Remove the two screws at the top of the lint trap. Remove the rear panel. Remove the four screws at the bottom that attach the lint filter housing to the blower housing. Then, remove the pen from the blower housing.

Where is the lent trap on the estate washer


If it is like my Kenmore washer, you need to remove the front panel at the base of the machine. You should see the trap front and center, caution when you open the trap there will be water coming out. good luck

I have a maytag heavy duty gas dryer model number LDG412 i need to know how to clean the vent all the way to the duct, the dryer is getting hot but it is taking a long time to dry clothes now, inside where...


Hello,
while cleaning the venting is never a bad idea and i recommend its done yearly,a common problem with older (the ldg 412 is from the mid 1980's) Maytag dryers isa stripped drive hub on the blower wheel and absolutly no air is being circulated throughout the dryer. A lot of times when starting the dryer and when it stops a rumbling noise will be made if the blower wheel is the problem. To check it if is the blower wheel you can remove the front panel by removing the screws that are a slight angle at the bottom of the front panel,tilt it out toward you at about a 45degree angle,then off. At that point remove the four 5/16" hexhead screws holding on the front drum support,lift it up slighly then off. The blower wheel will be in the lower left corner and you could spin it by your hand if it spins around the motor shaft it slips onto and does not move the drum while turning the blower wheel,it is stripped and needs to be replaced.To replace it remove the 1/4" hex head screws that hold the front plate to the plastic blower housing(7 screws) and the 5/16" hex head in the tab also in the plate in the front of blower housing the plate where come off. To replace blower wheel remove the greenish/black clamp from the center hub and the thin metal ring that fits ina groove on the motor shaft, a special c/e clip ring pliers are needs to remove the ring. A inexpensive pair could be picked up at most places that sell tools(ace hardware/lowes/home depot/sears) The part number for the blower wheel is 303836 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

I hope this will help you to repair your dryer,

i think the temp censor has stoped working thats why its not getting very hot its that or the heating coil/s are broken,,also check the air vents at the back are not blocked up if so its not getting any air to it,,,

Dryer shuts down after 5mins and also has a random


I think the vent is pluged up or bent so that the lent is trapped in the hose. its getting too hot. don't use it anymore till you get it cleaned and check for lent build up in side. can cause fire.

Wedding band missing in wash!


YES, there is a coin trap, and most likely your ring is in that trap. it is located under the drum on the right side. Here is how it looks.
Now is the bad news: You'll need to remove the front panel to get to it. I can't tell how to do it, have not worked on those newer frigidaires yet, but it's likely going to be fairly hard to do. You will need to remove the control panel and maybe the top to get to the front panel screws. Also be prepared to unfasten the door boot (big rubber seal) and fasten it back when you finish. Additionally, if you disconnect the coin trap from the pump, you might have hard times connecting it back (clamp pliers make that job easier). Before putting back front panel, pour some water intside the tub and check the coint trap connections for leaks. Hope I did not scare you ;)
Good luck!

I dropped a ring into the lint trap while the trap was out; how can I retrieve the ring?


if the lint screen is on top you need to take the lint trap out remove the 2 screws. now go to the back panel remove all the screws out of it and take it off make sure you have unpluged it from the wall and removed the exsaust. now to the left you will see the blower housing remove the screws i believe there are three or four and they are located at the bottom of the blower houseing. pull the blower away from the bulkhead and you will see what you have dropped. let me know how it goes.

Dropped bleach pen into lint trap. How do I get it out?


its not too hard to get out.
you will need a #2 phillips screwdriver and or a 1/4" socket driver
remove lint trap
remove 2 screws at lint trap
unplug unilt
open the top (2 clips between lid and front panel in the crack, push them with a butter knife or putty knife to release top) opens like a hood
pull out dryer and pull off rear panel
on the left hand side there is a metal duct like thing lol
that leads to the lint trap at the top.
there should be 4 screws at the bottom where it gets round.
remove them, and wiggle the duct open. your pen should be there..
