You just need to remove the front panel and then take out the drum. While the drum is out check the rollers and replace the skid pads.

The plastic piece inside the dryer (about 18"

If you are referring to the "fins", there are 3 of them that tumble the clothes, you can refer to some previous questions. You will need to remove the top first and then tighten them up. I have to replace one of my "fins" because it broke off inside of the dryer.

The window fell inside door. i would like to know how to take inside door panel off

Hello. Unscrew any screws you see around the door handle and then using a stiff blade putty knife work your way around the perimeter of the panel where you will be prying clips up. If you break a clip don't worry because these are common, inexpensive items at any auto parts store. Joe

Please rate this answer 4 thumbs up. Thanks.

My filter queen fell apart!
I would advise you to ALWAYS to FIRST UNPLUG YOUR VACUUM before beginning any service procedure. Not knowing what actually fell apart is to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or to call the Filter Queen factory cust serv or tech serv @ the phone # listed below, you can also request a new owner’s manual so that you might see what actual fell apart and you might be able to fix it yourself. So if you need further assistance, please feel free to contact your local vacuum cleaner dealer in your area or in the yellow pages, or contact the factory phone number or website to further assist you with your questions.

Kenmore gas dryer model 11070812990

Take a flat-blade screw driver and stick it in the seam between the top cover and front panel at one corner and pry up. The top panel will pop up from the catch - then do the same for the other front corner.

You can then tilt the top up towards the back of the dryer because there are hinges in the back. Spin the drum to where the holes for the baffle are and screw the baffle back on. If you are missing the screws, they probably fell to the bottom inside.

You can take off the front by unscrewing the two screws that hold the top of the front panel to the outside panels. Once those are off, just lift the front panel straight up and pull away. There are two holders towards the bottom that the front panel slides into.

Once the front is off you should be able to find the screws below.

Good luck. . .
