Where is the fuse on a alantis dryer


Instructions :
Unplug the dryer from its electrical outlet or flip the circuit breaker switch that corresponds to the appliance to the "Off" position.
Open the door of your Maytag Atlantis dryer and remove the four screws on the inside lip of the door opening. Set the removed screws aside.
Grasp the sides of the front panel and pull it toward you to separate it from the dryer cabinet. Lift the panel straight up to clear the two retaining clips on the bottom of the cabinet. Set the removed front panel to the side.
Locate the thermal fuse on the blower housing cover. Look for a thin, plastic strip approximately 1 inch long that has two wires attached to it.

Pull on the locking clips with needlenose pliers to disconnect them from the thermal fuse. Remove the screw that secures the thermal fuse to the blower housing cover. Discard the thermal fuse, but reserve the screw.

Line up the screw hole in the replacement thermal fuse with the screw hole on the blower housing cover. Reinsert and tighten the reserved screw to install the new thermal fuse. Clip one of the two wires to each end of the thermal fuse to complete the installation process.

My frigidaire dryer LEQ642DS0 will not shut off by itself, would that be the timer or the knob? Also if it is the timer, is the kenmore/frigidaire part #131062300 (timer) compatable with my dryer


Instructions
Things You'll Need:

* Phillips and hex nut screwdrivers
* Replacement thermal fuse
* Replacement thermostat

1. Disconnect the dryer from the electrical outlet.
2. Slide a putty knife between the top panel and front panel on the left side. Slide the knife toward the center of the dryer to release the left-side spring clip. Repeat the process on the right side. Lift the top panel up and rotate toward the back of the dryer. The thermal fuse and thermostat are located along the dryer's back wall, attached to the heating element housing.
3. Disconnect the two wires from the thermal fuse. The thermal fuse is an inch-long rectangular plastic part, located near the top of the heating element housing. Remove the screw holding the thermal fuse in place. Remove the old fuse. Place a new fuse on the housing and replace the screw. Reconnect the wires to the fuse.
4. Remove the wires on the thermostat. The thermostat is a black, oval-shaped part located just below the thermal fuse. Remove the screws holding the thermostat in place and slide it out of its slot on the heating element housing. Slide a new thermostat into the slot and replace the screw. Reconnect the wires.
5. Lower the dryer's top panel and press down until the spring clips lock into place. Plug the dryer back into the electrical outlet.

I have a Kenmore dryer. The fins are real loose, make alot of noise, catch socks, etc. How can I fix it.?


If the first three digits of the model number are "110." remove the lint filter from the top and remove the two exposed screws. Then you can insert a putty knife or similar tool into the gap between the front panel and top, about 2-1/2 inches in from the sides, and push in on the retaining clips. While pushing on a clip, simultaneously lift on that corresponding top corner, and the top will release to swing up.

This will expose the outside of the tumbler. As you spin the tumbler, each spot where a baffle is attached will come into view. After making sure there are no items inside the baffles (coins, pins, etc.), tighten the holding screws.

Tumbler belt came off


  • Unplug your dryer from the electrical outlet. Remove the lint trap by lifting its cover and sliding it out. Use a screwdriver to unscrew the two screws that hold in the housing of the lint trap.Lift up the top panel of the dryer and take off the holder for the door switch wire. Look for the screws that hold in the front panel of the dryer, located on top of the front panel, and unscrew them. Take the panel off the dryer by lifting it off.Look inside the dryer, find the broken dryer belt, and before taking it off, note the way it is routed around the pulleys, then take it off. Install a new Whirlpool dryer belt by slipping it around the tumbler with the grooves facing the surface of the tumbler. Ask an assistant to hold up the tumbler while you move the belt into the proper place, aligned with the black line around the width of the tumbler.Wrap the new dryer belt around the pulleys as noted in Step 3. If you don't remember how, or the old belt was snapped and not aligned properly, look at the dryer belt diagram in your user's manual.Align the front panel of the dryer with the tumbler. Put back in the two screws that hold the panel in place. Open the door of your dryer and with your hand, turn the spinner one time counterclockwise. Reconnect the holder for the door switch wire, being careful that it doesn't touch any moving parts.Use the screwdriver to carefully position the rubber seal along the back of the tumbler. Make sure the seal is on the outside of the tumbler and that none of it sticks to the inside of the tumbler.Slide the lint filter and housing back into place, and screw in the two screws that hold it in. Plug the cord of the dryer back into the electrical outlet and check that it spins properly.

    I have a Maytag MDE4700A electric dryer. It quit working (turning) but still heated up. I took the cabinet apart and found that the belt was broke. Need some assistance on beginner steps for replacing...


    Disconnect power to the dryer then open the door and remove the center screw of each hinge secured to the inner flange of the front panel in the door opening. Grasp the door with both hands and lift the door in the hinge area then draw the door assembly away from the dryer to disengage the hinges from the slots in the front shroud.
    b488499.jpg

    Remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

    Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

    The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip.

    Disconnect the wires from the door switch, sensor bar, and the lamp holder then unsnap the lamp holder wire harness from the front shroud wire retaining clip.

    Remove the four perimeter screws holding the shroud and tumbler front assembly to the cabinet. Remove the lowest outside screw at each corner then the top screw on each side.

    Pull the shroud and tumbler front assembly out and away from the tumbler while slightly lifting the top cover.

    Kneel near the front of the dryer and reach your left hand inside the dryer at 8 o'clock position and your right hand under the tumbler as close as possible to the blower then grasp the idler puller with your left hand and pull the idler upward and to the left.

    Slip the belt off the motor pulley and the back of the tumbler then pull the tumbler out of the cabinet while lifting the top cover.

    Place the belt onto the outside of the tumbler and position it 1 1/2 inches in front of the rear baffle mounting screws with the ribbed side facing the tumbler.
    a35ef3c.jpg

    Position the tumbler into the rear felt seal and resting it onto the rear rollers then lower the front of the tumbler onto the blower housing.

    Kneel near the front of the dryer and reach your left hand inside the dryer at 8 o'clock position and your right hand under the tumbler as close as possible to the blower then locate the belt and create a small loop with your right hand, ensuring the belt is free of twist.

    Position the open end of the loop onto the motor pulley with your right hand. Grasp the idler pulley with your left hand then pull the idler upward and to the left to clear the drive belt.

    Relax your left hand and allow the idler pulley to rest down onto the belt. Grasp the baffles with both hands and rotate the tumbler clockwise for the belt to align itself.

    Reinstall the shroud and tumbler front assembly in reverse of the removal steps. Lift the front inner edge of the tumbler to allow the front of the tumbler to rest on the teflon bearings on the shroud and tumbler front assembly. Check the felt seal to ensure that it is outside the lip of the tumbler.

    Secure the top cover with the hold down brackets then push the front panel posts against the clips in the cabinet until it engage.

    Insert the door hinge tabs into the slots in the front shroud and secure the hinges with the screws removed previously to complete the procedure.

    Disconnect your Kenmore Oasis washing machine from its power source. Make sure that your washer is unplugged before beginning to disassemble it.
    #
    2

    Remove the screws that hold the control console to the top of your Oasis washer. In some Kenmore Oasis models, the two screws may be covered by plastic end caps. After removing the screws, set them aside until you are ready to replace them.

    3

    Flip the console up, back and out of the way.
    4

    Locate the cabinet clips on the top of your Kenmore Oasis washer. These clips are located toward the back of the washer top and would be hidden by the console if it were not currently flipped up.

    Slide your screwdriver underneath the metal cabinet clips. Wiggle the screwdriver back and forth to gently pry the cabinet clips free.

    6

    Disconnect the group of colored wires that plug into the top of the washer from the control console. These wires control the lid switch on your Kenmore washing machine. To disconnect, grasp the white plastic clip and pull gently.

    Loud Grinding Noise when Tumbler Rotates


    Ok, these GE's sometimes have a problem with the front guides bearings going bad, and then the drum starts to eat into the top of the door hole and sides. That is probably what is making your noise. Before you spend a lot of time fixing something that cant be fixed, open the dryer door and look up in each top corner of the opening. Look to be sure the drum hasnt eaten its way through that area. If so, scrap it, because it will eat your clothes badly, and the front panels are to expensive. If not, UNPLUG YOUR MACHINE PLEASE, then standing facing the dryer, open the door, and remove the two screws that are in the top of the door housing area (not the door itself, these would be up by where I told you to look for damage). These screws hold down the top. After removing these screws, lift up on the cabinet top, and pull GENTLY towards you until the top clears the console guide posts in the top rear. After removing the top, inside the cabinet, on either side and at the top, you will see a phillips head screw that holds the front to the cabinet. Remove these screws, and fold the front towards you slowly, removing any wires that may be holding up the swing out (i.e. door switch, light wires, etc., be sure you remember the way the wires reattach). When you look at the top of where the drum rides, you will see a plastic ring with smaller like plastic flat peices that the drum rides in. More than likely, you will have to replace both parts. The ring separates in the center, and is replacable (you should only have to replace the top half). The drum guides are the smaller plastic type guides that just slide in. Reassembly is reverse. Let me know if you need further help. Jim
