How do I take off the front panel to get to the blower?

I had a rat to get up into the blower from the outside vent. I want to take the blower off and clean it out because of the particles left from the rat. What would be the best way to get to the blower?

Horrible smell from gas dryer. Dead animal?

yes usually birds, but can also be rats or mice. Check the flaps on the outside for movement and that they shut, you should have the sort with a grill over. Remove the hose from the back. If not in there, you have to take the front off the dryer and get to where the blower and element are.

How do I clean the lint from the dryer past the lint trap?

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,

Dtyer load and air not venting to outside vent

The blower motors on these dryers can be packed with lint. It is a fire hazard. The entire front of the dryer has to be removed.

Dryer leaking water

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

Dryer air heats up but does not dry the clothes. Just replaced the timer but did not fix the problem. Air vents are cleared.

One of two possiblities:

1. Dryer vent is blocked - check the air coming through the outside vent
2. Blower Fan is clogged - remove the lower front panel and clean out the fan wheel

Dryer not venting properly

Unplug the dryer.
Raise the top lid.
Remove the front panel.
Inspect the blower wheel attached to the motor.
It is probably turning on the shaft.
If so, replace the blower wheel.

If not, dig the lint out of the vent between the wheel and the rear of the dryer.

Maytag dryer

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

A/C problems

obviously you have a short circuit, need more info on what fuse
and make sure is is correct ratting, if it is a blower fuse (a/c works but no air comes out vents) there could be something stuck inside blower motor or housing (leafs, twigs, or even mice or rats)
