How do I take off the back to get to elements and fuse on my kenmore elite dryer, I took screws off but the top appears to be welded.
Getting to the heating circuits is not the same on every model of dryer. Some dryers have heating circuits in the REAR of the dryer, some have the heating circuits located inside the cabinet UNDER the drum and others have heating circuits BEHIND the drum.
If your dryer has the lint screen on the TOP of the unit, you will need to remove the BACK panel of the dryer to expose the heating circuits.
If the dryer has the lint screen in the DOOR, you will need to remove the lower toe panel under the door by using a putty knife to release the retaining clips. They will be located along the seam in the front about 2 inches in from each side. If this is a Kenmore Elite or Whirlpool Duet, the lower toe panel comes off by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the panel.
If you do not have a toe panel, you will need to lift the dryer top and remove the entire FRONT panel to access the internal components.
If you have further questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER so I can determine how your dryer is constructed.
