Just pull either at the top or bottom of the bottom panel. It'll give.

I want to clean the inside of my DLG0452W. Hasn't been done in 10-11 years. This is all part of venting. It properly. Can I take the bottom panel off?


i looked up your model and it looks like you haave to remove the top panel and then the front panel to get to the inside cabinet,if on the front you do have an access panel on the bottom then yes you want to remove the bottom front panel,pull out the lint filter,remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean that,then with a shop vac vac out the cabinet,then set the shop vac up to blow and blow all the lint from the back forwards and blow off the motor,this way you don't have to pull the belt and drum.when that's done go to the back and remove the vent line from the dryer,if it's a long run to the outside,go outside and make sure the duct is open,no cage or screen blocking it,go back inside,stick a leaf blower into the vent line and blow it out.do this once a year and your dryer will run better and last longer but mostly you won't have a fire.hope this helps.

Kenmore gas dryer 110.77902792 The outer surface of the burner funnel is covered with rust. Do I need to do something about this?


no,caused by moisture,you can try cleaning out the dryer,unplug it,pull out the lint filter,remove the bottom panel and remove the duct that the lint filter slides into and clean it out,then if you have a shop vac,vac up all the lint you can see then stick the hose on the other end and blow all the lint from the back to the front and vac up the lint this way you don't have to pull the drum to clean the cabinet,make sure you blow off the motor and all the gas parts,then remove the vent line from the back of the dryer,if it's a long run from the dryer to the out side i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,go outside first and make sure nothing is blocking the vent then blow it out from behind the dryer.if the vent line is blocked or the dryer filled with lint this can cause extra moisture and also a fire in the dryer.do this once a year and you'll have no problems with the dryer and the way it dryes the clothes.

Cleaning out the dryer vent in the front of the dryer


The easiest and effective way is to get a long brush and use it from the top down with your vacuum hose to catch the lint as it breaks free.

If you are really adventurous here is how to take it apart...

- Remove the lower panel in front by pressing on the release springs, they are in the slot between the upper and lower front panels about 3 inches from each side. Lift and remove the panel.

- Snap the end caps off of the console on both sides.

- Remove the two screws that point down in the console into the top

- Swing the console up

- Remove the 3 screws under the console that hold the top to the back and slide the top toward you and lift off

- Look inside and tilt your head down like you are looking back at yourself. Locate and disconnect the wires to the door switch. Mark which ones went where.

- Remove the 2 screws from the front panel on the bottom first, then the top and pull the front panel off.

- From here you can clean around the motor the bottom and take the door apart to clean the lint chute.

Maytag performa Keeps blowing Thermal Fuse. Vents are clean. Cleaned entire system. Seems to heat up as soon as dryer cuts off.Changed control thermostat as well. Can get one load and replace fuse.


something is still plugged with lint,if the vent line is long blow it out with a leaf blower to clean it out,you have to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,if the filter is on top remove the vent line,remove the back panel,remove the lint filter and the two screws in front of it and remove the four screws and clean out the duct,if the filter is in front take off the bottom panel,remove the filter and clean the duct,also vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is,when the dryer gets to hot the thermal fuse pops as a safety so you still have a block somewhere

My dryer is taking forever to dry clothes. Very damp and a lot of condensation when I open the dryer. It's model # MDE508DAYW


Good day,
Sounds like the vent system is badly blocked, the blower wheel has stripped off it's shaft, or there is a lot of lint in the blower wheel/lint screen area.
1. Remove the vent hose and see if your getting air moving thru smarty. Maytag moves a lot of air. If O.K. test dryer with vent off for performance. Clean or replace vent hose as needed.
2. Blower wheel sheared on it's shaft. You have to remove the front panel to see if the wheel is loose. Old version had 2 screws on the bottom of the front panel. Remove, disconnect door switch wires and remove. New style (no screws on bottom) requires a putty knife forced on each corner of where the top meets the front. About an 1 1/2 inch in from the edge. Force in, releasing clip, and pulling the top of the front panel toward you. Lift off.

Should the blower wheel be bad, replace but make sure the area between the blower wheel and door filter are cleaned.

Clean Dryer Lint Vent in Kenmore elite HE4


If you wish to clean the interior cabinet of the dryer follow these steps:

1. UNPLUG the dryer. Dangerous voltages are still present even with the dryer turned off.

2. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen. IMPORTANT: You must remove the lint screen first in order to remove the blower fan housing.

3. Remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door by removing the screws under the bottom front edge of the panel. With the screws removed, the panel will drop down, then come off. NOTE: For better access, you can prop the front feet of the dryer up (a 2x4 works well).

4. Loosen the screws on the blower fan housing directly below the drum and remove. There's usually a small clip holding the cover in at the bottom that you may need to pull out to release. NOTE: You may also have to disconnect the auto dry sensor plug (yellow wires with white plug - use a small screwdriver to release the locking tabs) and/or ground wire to accommodate removal of the cover.

You should now have access to the dryer interior and the blower fan squirrel cage motor. Take the time to clean out the blower fan housing cover as well. A long bristle brush made for dryers works well at removing any lint inside the dryer in the hard to reach places, followed by vacuuming.

NOTE: After cleaning, you may experience a slight burning odor. This is normal as lint gets stirred up in the cleaning process and can settle on the heating components. The odor should dissipate after a short period of use.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

(watch for sharp edges) 5. Swing top up and over onto top of dryer. 6. Unplug light and door switch. 7. remove four screws at top of large lower panel. 8. lift panel up a bit and off. 9. unplug sensor plug at bottom allowing panel with door to be set aside. 10. gas dryer has dime sized high limit thermostat on left front side of burner chamber. Has two wires on it, with a small pin in the center. Push the pin in. Reassemble and clean out vent, eliminating flexible venting, replacing with rigid aluminum piping and elbows. Outside vent should have a four inch vent flap opening, not just a two inch if it is that style.

it sounds like there is no air flow check outside of home where vent exits house there should be strong air flow it either a blocked venting or a bad blower fan in the dryer most likely blocked venting start outside then work your back to the dryer if no air flow outside remove venting from the dryer ifgood air flow here the vent is blocked if not blower fan most likely broken these blower fans drive hub round out on the motor shaft of the motor but it would be very loud this should fix it for you thanks kevin
