Question about Kenmore Dryers
Model 110.65224. I attempted to remove the back panel, but found an uncovered element after removing the lower front panel. Most instructions suggested taking the back panel off to get to what appears to be an enclosed element, lying parallel to the dryer. However, when I removed the lower front panel, I can see what looks like exposed heating coils lying parallel to the floor toward the back of the unit. Could this be the heating element and why isn't it enclosed considering the amount of dust and lint produced by the dryer? Any advice is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
The heating element will have multiple coils to it with two leads coming into it. POS/NEG. If that is it then it is very strange that it is not enclosed in some way shape or form.

remove the lint fiter and remove the two phillips screws then lift the top up
you will find two screws on each side of the inside of the frount panel down about 4 inches , this when removed will allow you to swing the frount arround to gain access to the belt

On my 7 year old Series 90 Dryer, I
- unplug the dryer
- use a flash light to locate the two black metal spring clips (located about 3 inches from each end of the lower panel along its top edge). They can be seen in the crack between the upper and lower panels.
- use a putty knife, or similar tool, to press down each clip while pulling out that edge of the panel.
- The panel slips off the lower clips easily.
- on some models there is a lone yellow wire with a connector on the end. If it is unconnected to anything, don't go nuts thinking that you have disconnected a wire by accident. Its one of those unused wires on some models.
- collect as many coins as possible before you vacuum the inside of the machine. Leaning the machine forward can often slide hidden coins to the front. BE SURE YOU CAN LEAN THE MACHINE WITHOUT HAVING IT FALL ON YOU. Otherwise, plan on collecting the coins from the vacuum cleaner when you finish.
- replace the panel by first threading the panel on to the lower clips, then closing the panel. CLICK, CLICK. FINISHED.
Congrats you have cleaned it, possibly avoided a house fire and added to the mad money collection. Hope this helped.
