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.
i looked up your model dryer,your lint filter is on top so your duct or shute that the lint filter slides into is in the back.unplug the dryer,pull it a little way from the wall,look in the back to see how long the vent line is,then slide the dryer out enough so you can remove the vent line without ripping it off the dryer depending on how it's attached,some are clamped,some just slide out if connected to an elbow piece of vent tubing, taped on or some are screwed on.remove the vent line pull the dryer out and remove the back panel,on the left side you'll see the shute or metal duct, pull out the lint filter and remove the two phillips screws,remove the 4 screws that hold the duct on,remove the duct and clean it out,with a shop vac vac up any lint in the blower wheel and what's visible then set the vac to blow and blow out the blower wheel,the pipe where the vent line connects and the heater box on the right side,put the dryer back together except for the two phillips screws on top.now if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the line,just stick the leaf blower into the vent line and blow all the lint outside,first go outside and look at the hood where the air blows out,make sure nothing is blocking it,if there's a cage or like chicken wire remove it and keep it off so no lint can get trapped in it,you want the lint to blow outside freely,before you even start to clean out the dryer and vent you can start the dryer,go outside and check how strong the air is blowing out and then check it after you clean it out,it should be stronger,another sign that something is blocked is your clothes take longer to dry.now you should pull the front apart and clean the inside cabinet.watch video,it will show you what to do.hope this helps and you should do this around every year to 18 months.it's easier than it sounds to do http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xGIG8Wo5-N4
you need to unplug the dryer,then with a putty knife stick it in between the top panel and the front panel and there are clips one on each side that you release with the putty knife and remove the front panel or you could have two 5/16 inch screws on the bottom of the front panel but i believe your model has the clips,when you remove the front panel you need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside cabinet where the motor is,put it back together then pull out the dryer and remove the vent line from the rear,if it's a long run to the outside you can stick a leaf blower inside the vent line and blow all the lint out to the outside hood,before you blow it out go outside and make sure the hood is clear then blow out the line,
lint is blocking the air from blowing outside and the steam has nowhere to go,you need to clean out your dryer and vent line,go outside and see if the flapper is blowing fully open,if there is a cage on outside vent remove it,if you have a long vent line from the wall to the outside blow it out with a leaf blower,if your lint filter is on top take the back panel off and remove the duct that the filter slides into,if the filter is inside the dryer,remove front panel and remove the duct and clean it out,also vac out the inside of dryer,if your vac has a blower on it blow the lint off the motor,you'll be surprised how much lint will come off the motor,you should do this once a year so you don't have a fire,usually the thermal fuse willpop when dryer gets that backed up
take the bottom panel off,you'll see the blower wheel duct,take it off,clean all the lint out of it and vac the dryer,go outside and check the vent,now you'll see the thermal fuse on the top of the blower wheel housing part 3392519, you'll need a 1/4 size socket to get the two screws out, when you get it running go outside and make sure the flapper is blowing wide open if not you have to blow out the vent line,you can use a leaf blower if it's a long vent line
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
