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.

Mdg9700 need to remove front cover, which does NOT match normal maytag type bottom held by clips not screws, first look is that control panel needs to remove first but if so these are concealed.


The top panel and the control panel need to be removed first before the front panel can be removed. Once the top panel is off, the screws attaching the control panel to the dryer cabinet are exposed. The screws securing the front panel to the dryer cabinet are exposed once the control panel is removed.

Disconnect power and remove the two screws attaching the top panel to the rear of the dryer.

Slide the top panel towards the rear to clear the screw head from the flange at the bottom side of the top panel then lift it from the unit.

How do i change out the upper felt guide nad the lower basket seal on a GLEQ642A frigidaire dryer. i am not a professional, but i think i can do/figure this out if i had the instructions.


Remove the top of the dryer by unsrewing the two phillips head connections at the rear.
Remove the four phillips head screws located near the top at the interior of the cabinet, two on either side which will release the front door and face.
Unclip the two electrical connections at the top right to the control panel. These are preformed plastic connectors
Undo the three electrical connections from the door switch. These are individual wires with "bayonet" connections. Write down order and placement for reinstallation.
Undo the two individual wire connections for the interior drum light which are also bayonet style connections. Write down order for reinstallation.
The door and face will now be free for servicing the felts.

Belt repalcement proceedure


Pop the top, (use a screw driver) remove the front ... remove the drum ... clean the interior ... notice how the tensioner pulley works as you disassemble the machine. It does hook into the slots on the floor and the new belt will pull through the teensioner and around the motor pulley.

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.

Kenmore dryer...How to remove toe panel to clean lint out.


Insert a putty knife into the seam where it meets the front panel about 2 inches in from each side. There is a small retainer clip that you will need top depress in order for the panel to release. If you go to searspartsdirect.com and enter your model number, you can find a helpful illustration under the "Cabinet" heading. The clips I mention are listed as item 46 just ot give you a perspective. I would also strongly recommend that you UNPLUG the dryer before cleaning the interior cabinet. There are live voltages present even with the dryer turned off. Particulary around the heating circuits. I hope you find this information helpful.
