You will need to unplug the fridge or unplug the wires going to the dispenser from behind the grill at the bottom of the fridge.
Pop off the front cover over the switches and pop off the soft button cover that you mash to activate the dispenser.
You will see the screws that hold the dispenser assembely to the housing. remove them and the unit will slide toward you.
Post back if you need more help, I may have forgotten a step somewhere.

How do I get to the belt moter on a sears Kenmore 500 cloths dryer the belt is off but not broken

The usual method of accessing the belt is to remove the entire fron panel (including door). It is usually easy to remove the panel by removing a couple of screws at the top and pulling up and out on the panel. The belt can be reached from the front. All dryer belts have a spring loaded tensioner on the belt. Check the tensioner as belts hardly ever come off unless the tensioner spring breaks.

Must replace front drum felt seal?

The front of the dryer comes off depending on the model . I;ll list the most common ways
There are 4 different designs that used on these dryers and each one has its own specific way to access the element, blower, fuses. etc In this FAQ I will describe each design and method to access for each one. ---------------Design 1: This design for this dryer has the heating components located in the front of the machine, which means to gain access you'll have to lift the top and remove the front. You can visually verify this specific type because the lint screen is located inside the dryer requiring you to open the door to gain access to it. As with any do itself repair, always unplug the machine before you start. Here's the method of access listed in numerical order. 1) Remove the lower kick plate by pressing in the two clips, one on each side located in between the upper and lower portion of the front In doing this you'll gain access to the element, located on the right hand side facing, the high limit and thermostat fuse located on the element, the cycling thermostat, located on the blower housing, and thermal fuse, located next to the cycling thermostat. In gas models the gas coils and ignitor may be located on the left hand side facing. If changing the belt, rollers or motor, continue to step two. 2) Lift the top by placing a flat head screwdriver in between the front and the top of the dryer and pry it upwards. In some cases there are two metal clips, one on the left and one on the right, that need to be pushed forward to lift the top up. 3) With the top up and the kickplate removed take the door springs off, one on each side, and remove the door by taking out the 4 screws one upper left and right, one lower left and right, off and don't forget to disconnect your door switch-----------------Design 2 : In this design the heating components are located in the rear of the machine. All you have to do is get behind the dryer, remove the 9 1/4" screws and remove the panel. The element eill on the right had side with the two fuses located on it, the cycle and thermal fuse will be on the lower left on the blower housing. To access the belt, rollers etc, remove the lint trap on top, take out the two screws that are underneath it and using a flat head screwdriver pop the top up. Next, located the two screws that are on the upper left and right inside front of the machine that hold the front. Remove these and then you'll be able to lift and pull the dryer front completely off.--------------Design 3 : In this design the components are located in the front of the machine, but to access them you'll follow the method used in design 2 for accessing the belt, rollers, etc.take out the two screws that are underneath it and using a flat head screwdriver pop the top up. Next, located the two screws that are on the upper left and right inside front of the machine that hold the front. Remove these and then you'll be able to lift and pull the dryer front completely off. The set up will be like design one.--------------- Note: The best way to determine if your dryer is desgin 2 or 3, remove lint trap and pop the top. When you've got this done, you'll be able to look in between the inside rear wall and the rear panel and see if the element, fuses atc are there. If not it will be design 3---------Design 4 : HE, HE2, Duet, etc the way you take the top off is a little different. For these machines, there are 3 to 4 screws located on the top back side you'll need to remove, and then the dryer top can be slid back and removed. From there you'll remove the kickplate in come cases by taking the 3 or 4 screws off located at the bottom of the kickplate. With that removed you will be able to remove the front, but only after you remmove the control panel. The In some cases the components will be located in the rear like the second design.

How do you get the top off a Kenmore Model # 22722? It looks like each corner is screwed down? I tried poping it open by inserting flathead screwdriver under lip on top left and right of front of machine,...

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:

Enter your model number (###.########) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Go to the section on the Sears site for the Control Panel and y9ou should see how the console is attached.

Also see the following :

Most Kenmore Top Load washers have endcaps on each side that simply snap off allowing access to a phillips head screw. Remove the screws, pull the console slightly forward and then up.

On sone washers, there are no removable endcaps. These washers use a clip under the ends of the console.

If you un-plug the washer and slip a thin putty knife between the cabinet and control panel where the clip is, the clip should release allowing you to tilt the control panel back.

Kenmore gas dryer heats for several minutes ,then goes cold

I'm haveing the same problem with my frididaire gas dryer. I replaced the ignitor and cleaned the inside parts with a vacume and still having similar problems as yours. I think I will replace the temp. sensor that is attached to the flame tube inside the dryer next. To gain access to the inside parts you will need a putty knife to release the top panel. Just slide the putty knife along the top seam in front of the drryer. There are 2 clips that realease the top peice. With the top lifed up you will see 2 phillips head screws attaching the front panel to the dryer. Remove those screws and lift upwards and the front panel will lift right off the unit.carefully place the front panel to the side without damageing any wires attached. Then all your gas assembly parts will be visable in the bottom left cornner of the unit.

hope this helps,

Ice maker has ice in it but will not dump in bin!

before i would worry about the lights flashing lets pull the front cover off of the icemaker and verify that the drive gear is not broken.

on the bottom of the icemaker is 1 screw. remove that screw then just slide the entire icemaker out of the refrig so that you can access the front cover. if the gear is broken just replace the front motor module pt# 8201515

if the gear is fine then located in the toe grille of your refrig is a tech sheet that will help you troubleshoot red light blinking.

Kenmore 416.82042042

Remove the botton front panel and look at both sides towards the bottom. There are mini shock absorbers. Most likely, one is broken. They are only $16.99 each at (part # 131268200). There is also a counterweight on the left side that may be invlolved. I just opened my washer and saw the counter weight laying loose on the floor. Not sure if DIYJim can tackle this job or not............
