How do I keep rodents from eating the wires on my vehicles or from nesting in the engine compartment


Just read an article in Brake & Front End, (a professional
trade publication ) in the last hour ,about mice eating
the cop ignition wires on 1 coil & going under intake &
eating the knock sensor wires ,on a 2002 Lexus

They didn't say how to stop that

Usually they get into the ducting & you get no air to the
motor, after they bring in their nesting materials & food

HOW DOES THE FRONT PANEL REMOVE -FOR CLEANING THE BURNER AND MOTOR


For the model dryer you have listed, the dryer cabinet can be removed for cleaning by following these steps:


1. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.

2. Remove the two screws that were under the lint screen and lift the top panel.

3. Unplug the door switch connector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.

4. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.

5. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.

You should now have complete access to the dryer interior.

Once you have completed your inspection and cleaning of the dryer interior re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assistant may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws.

NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run.

Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them.


If you have any questions about this repair, or if the model number is different, please post back and let me know. I hope this helps you.

Maytag Performa Electric dryer. Went to put in load and start-would not turn on. Checked breaker first. Then listed and I could hear the timer clickin on the front panel.Front door panel was full of lint....


In-laws machine did exactly the same thing. Check the thermal fuse.

Turn off the breaker.
Pop the top open with a flat screwdriver (there are two clips at the front)
There are two white wires on the right-side of the burner element, this is the thermal fuse (wires are kinda awkward to remove)

I jumpered these to wires and it started right up.

Drum does not turn


HI. This may be a possible belt issue. the belt may have slipped off, or failed. To access, simply, remove the access panel on the rear of the unit. Once removed, you will be able to inspect the belt location.Replace the belt, if needed.

Additionally, if the belt is ok, i would recommend to move on to the door switch. Most units are designed to not spin, if the door switch circuit has failed. Use the procedure below to test this switch.


The door switch may be accessible without removing the front panel or cabinet. The switch is located in the front panel of the dryer, around the perimeter of the door opening. Inspect the switch to determine if it can be popped out or accessed by removing a fastening screw. If it cannot be accessed from the front, it will be necessary to open the dryer cabinet. When reaching into the dryer be careful of sharp edges on the cabinet and interior supports.

Access varies by model, if your dryer has a lower front panel (kick plate) start there. It should lift up and off or it may be held in place with a few screws or snaps; it may also have a catch at the edges or center gap between the kick panel and main panel. To release the catch, push a putty knife, wrapped with masking tape, into the gap and push back the catch. The next easiest access point is the rear panel. The rear access panel is held in place with several screws along the outer edges. The last resort method of access is the removal of the entire front panel. The front panel supports the front of the drum and so removal is more difficult. Front panel removal varies. In general, access is gained by lifting the top (remove the lint trap screws first), removing the screws that secure the front panel, and detaching the panel from the drum.

Locate the door switch, it typically has two wires connected to it. Label the wires and connections so that you can properly reconnect them later. The wires are connected with slip on connectors. Firmly pull the connectors off of the terminals (do not pull on the wire itself). You may need to use a pair of needle-nose pliers to remove the connectors. Inspect the connectors and the terminals for corrosion. If either is corroded they should be cleaned or replaced.

Use a multimeter to test for continuity. Set the meter to the ohms setting X1. For a two wire switch, touch one probe to each terminal. You should get a reading of infinity. With the probes still in place, press and hold the switch, the reading should change to zero.

If the switch does not test as described, it should be replaced.

Now, if the door switch is ok, and operational, the motor will be the culprit.

My GE dryer will not always start when is push the


HI. Actually, the door switch will be the next component that you will need to test in this situation.Once you have ruled out the door switch, I would then replace the timer module. The door switch plays a very important part in the operation of the unit. If the switch is weak, or faulty, it will not allow for a complete closed circuit.

Inspect the switch to determine if it can be popped out or accessed by removing a fastening screw. If it cannot be accessed from the front, it will be necessary to open the dryer cabinet.

Now, if the door switch is ok, and passes the above test, this will lead to the timer.

Dryer model 66712690 Serial # MF2603521 What year what this made? Power is live to dryer. Won't turn on.


Your dryer was manufactured in June of 1996. If the dryer is not turning on, it could be any of the following:

1. Defective Door Switch. If the door switch is not functioning, this will prevent the dryer from starting. You can check it by toggling the switch at the door. You should be able to see the drum light turning on and off, if the switch is working.
2. Blown Thermal Fuse. The fuse is located on the blower fan housing. To access, you will need to unplug the dryer and remove the back panel. The thermal fuse is a plastic looking component on the blower fan housing on the lower left hand side. It has two wires coming off of it. Disconnect the two wires and measure the fuse with a multimeter. You should read a short (0 ohms) if good. If the fuse is blown, this generally occurs for a reason. The number one cause, is clogged or poorly installed dryer vent ducting. Now may be a good time to inspect your dryer ducting to ensure it is blowing air correctly.
3. Broken Dryer Belt. If the belt is broken, the dryer drum will not turn, but will still attempt to heat. If the belt needs replaced, follow these steps:

a. UNPLUG the dryer and remove the lint screen.

b. Locate the two screws near the lint screen opening and remove. With the two screws removed, the top panel will lift up.

c. Unplug the door switch conector plug and any ground wire that may be installed on the casing.

d. Locate the two screws that hold the front panel in place. There should be one screw on each side in the cabinet interior.

e. With the door shut, lean against the front panel and remove the two screws that hold it in place. Once the screws are removed, grasp the front panel at the top center and lift straight up to remove.

You should now have complete access to the dryer interior. If the belt is broken, this may cause the idler pulley to come loose. This is normal with no tension on the pulley to hold it in place. To install a new belt and re-install the pulley, follow these steps:

a. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

b. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

c. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.

Once you have the belt installed, re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assist may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws. NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run. Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them.

4. Defective Drive Motor. If the drive motor fails, the drum will not turn. The motors are usually very reliable, but it can happen.
5. Defective Timer. Again, usually a very reliable part.
6. Push-To-Start Switch. If the start button fails, no start voltage is applied to the drive motor. You can take a resistance reading across the terminals with the wires disconnected to see if the switch is toggling properly. You will need to remove the back panel of the operator console to access it.
7. Bad Power Cord. I know you said you had voltage, but WHERE did you measure it? With the dryer unplugged, remove the access panel that covers the terminal block in the back of the dryer. This is where the power cord is installed. Plug the dryer back in and take a reading across the RED and BLACK wires at the terminal block. You should read 220-240VAC. If good, this proves the power cord is good. If bad, unplug the dryer and take the same reading across the two HOT terminals (Left and Right slots) of the wall receptacle. If good at the receptacle, but bad at the terminal block,you have a bad power cord.

I hope I've given you enough to think about. Start with the easy items you can eliminate first. If you have questions, please let me know.

You can refer to searspartsdirect.com for exploded view diagrams of the dryer. Type in your model number as 110.66712690. The Thermal Fuse is located under the "Bulkhead" heading as item 59. The Push-to-Start Switch is listed as item 5 under the "Top and Console" heading. The Door Switch is listed as item 41 under the "Cabinet" heading.
