How to access behind the dryer drum


Hello. I don't have the make/model number but I'm going to attempt to help you! Assuming that the dryer has the top mounted lint filter, the blower housing cover will have 2 screws which attach the blower housing to the top cover visible when the lint filter is removed. You must remove power from the dryer to proceed. The tool has fallen into the blower housing where the blower fan is located. The vent tube must be removed(pipe that attaches the dryer to the wall). Next, the rear cover of the dryer must be removed to expose the blower cover, usually mounted on the left side( if you're facing the rear of the dryer). Remove the 2 screws from the top of the dryer(underneath the lint filter), next, remove the 3-4 screws which hold the blower cover onto the blower housing. Usually, in order to remove the blower cover and access the fan area, it will have to be firmly pushed upwards and at the same time, pulled outward at the bottom to clear the bottom lip of the dryer. Vacuum out any debris inside the cover and fan, remove the lost tool, and then(and this can be a pain to do) replace the blower cover. Be patient(you have to slide the cover up, back into position and push firmly in order to get it to go over the bottom lip of the dryer again. Be careful! There are many unfinished edges in dryers and it's like putting your hand into a box of razor blades when handling parts such as these) Replace the mount screws of the housing cover and rear cover of the dryer.(Positioning of the rear dryer cover can be tricky to get the screw holes to line up again--the rear cover has a lip beneath where the vent pipe is located that sits on an edge--it sometimes can be difficult to get positioned properly so be patient and don't get frustrated!) Once you get a couple of screws in, the rest should line up reasonably. I hope I helped you!

Neptune dryer turns on and works for about 10 minutes, then shuts off. When the door is opened it is very hot and has a burnt smell. The only setting that does not have a burnt smell is air fluff. All...


remove the front cover and drum and clean out all lint including lint filter blower wheel housing and all exhaust vent piping from inside dryer to outside discharge,if this is done and it persists,replace the cycling switch and high-limit thermostat as these may have welded themselves and can no longer control heat

Need to replace a baffle that broke off . MED9800TKo model baffle broke off insde on the dryer drum


Remove the top panel to access the outside of the drum where the baffle securing screws are found. Remove the three hex-head screws from the rear flange of the dryer's top cover the lift the rear of the cover and slide it back so the tabs clear the catches on the bracket and remove the cover from the unit.

Turn the drum until the baffle screws are on top then remove the screws and the baffles. Install the new baffles then the top cover. Make sure that the tabs slide under the bracket catches when you reinstall the top cover. The top cover screws have nylon flat washers on them. Be sure to use these screws when you reinstall the top cover.

One of the "fins" inside the dryer is coming off and just needs to be tightened but I cant figure out how to get to the drum to tighten the screw.


The top cover needs to be lifted to the rear of the dryer to access the outside of the drum, but you have to remove the front panel first. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and 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.

Swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer. The baffles securing screws can now be re-tightened. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

I have a G.E profile dryer dpgt750 cant seem to figure out how to take off the back panel, the dryer is making a loud noise sounds like possible belt problem. any ideals? THANKS MARTY


Marty, you need to remove the front cover on these and most dryers by removing lower front kick panel screws, then remove the front cover and then you access the top cover screws to remove top cover then you can access th drum belt

I have Whirlpool Duet Dryer that has a noise.


It is common for small items (such as coins) to get stuck inside the dryer drum baffles. You can easily remove them without disassembling the entire dryer. The screws that hold them in place are located on the outside of the dryer drum. In order to access, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the dryer.
2. Remove the top panel of the dryer by removing the three screws located in the back of the dryer holding the panel in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel slides back, then lifts off.

Each drum baffle has two screws holding it in place. Remove the screws and the baffle will drop into the drum allowing you to easily check inside each one.

Another source of dryer noise is something caught in the blower fan housing. You will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door to access. Follow these steps:

1. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen (the blower fan cover will not come off with the lint screen in place).
2. Locate the screws that hold the toe panel in place along the bottom front edge of the panel. HINT: Propping the front feet of the dryer up can give you better access to reach the screws (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed the toe panel will drop down, then come off.
3. Remove the screws that hold the blower fan cover in place.

Inspect the blower fan housing for any objects that may be vibrating against the fan blades.

If you still need further assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

Drum not turning. Where is belt? Kenmore 110


The belt is on the outside of the drum and is accessible from the rear of the dryer. If you remove the access panel on the bottom rear of the dryer, you will see the motor, where the belt is on the motor sheave (pulley). On some Sears Kenmore models you need to remove the top cover of the dryer to access the belt around the drum (towards the rear).

Dryer marks clothes


it could be the adhesive that holds the felt bearings on the front housing. you see the back of the dryer drum has a bearing in its center, the front of the drum rotates on two or more felt pads or bearings in/on the front cover where your door is. you'll need to remove the front cover to replace these felt bearings. there should be two screws, maybe more holding the front cabinet to the rest of the dryer. the bearings will be mounted to the front cabinet right around the hole for the door.
