The choice is yours. Money often motivates these decisions. If the model number you have this listed under is correct, the top panel price is roughly $108 to $160 depending on the color you need. White or Bisquit is the cheapest, while Pewter is the most expensive. If you wish to replace it, appliancepartspros.com carries it for the cheapest price.

If you wish to paint it, remove the panel from the dryer first by locating and removing the screws that hold the panel in place in the rear of the dryer. With the screws removed, the panel will slide back, then lift off. This will allow you to work on it in a more convenient location and avoid any overspray from paint on your appliance. Make sure you clean the surface throughly to remove anything that may have caused the paint to bubble and peel in the first place (Ospho is commonly used to clean metal surfaces in preparation for painting - clean AFTER you sand). I would sand with a fine grit sand paper or emery cloth to ensure you don't leave any surface scratches. Prime the entire panel to provide a good surface for the new paint to adhere to. Once the primer is dry, apply a couple of good coats of appliance paint. If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

Tip

Generic, All Around Useful Painting Tips...


When faced with an expensive Paintbrush with dried paint, don't toss it, Save It...
  • Soak it overnight - Starting out with very warm Vinegar.
Now so it doesn't happen again...
  • Clean well, Place it into proper sized Ziplock Bag & then put into a Pringles, or Coffee can, Then cap it with the plastic Lid.
When storing a partially used can of paint, instead of just putting the lid on it,
  • place a sheet of plastic sheeting like Saran Wrap over the top, then press the lid on.
Instead of using the edge of the can to remove excess paint,
  • find a large thick Rubber Band, or Tie a wire or Twine over the top and bottom, exposing it over the middle of the opened can. Now just use that to remove excess paint & it will fall directly into middle of can and keeps can clean.
If your painted project appears a little rough after painting...
  • Don't use sandpaper or steel wool to remove roughness, that will leave scratch marks, even if gone over lightly, instead use Brown Paper Bag.
If going to apply new coat or 1st coat over metal,
  • wipe down really well with Vinegar. This will help keep paint from bubbling, chipping, blistering or peeling away.
To keep paint brush marks from being noticeable, especially on furniture or cabinetry, or Doors,
  • Use a product called Flotrol. This will eliminate streak and brush marks.
And one more tip
When needing to know what type of paint is on your project that you want to repaint...
  • Pour some Vinegar on a cotton ball, then rub on the paint. If cotton ball has paint on it, it is Latex, Not Oil based.
Happy Painting

How to stain fiberglass entry door?


You cannot use regular stain on a Fiberglass door. Stain is made to soak into wood. It cannot soak into Fiberglass. It will peel right off in several months depending on the weather. A solid stain may would work for a while, but it will not hold up as well. Whereas stain is made to soak into wood, paint is made to sit on top of surfaces. There are some nice paints that look like stained wood if that is the effect you are looking for. But if you want the new finish to last on your door, use paint. Make sure you clean the door thoroughly with a degreaser, prep solvent or paint thinner

1995 paint on cherokee peeling


The peeling paint is a factory defect caused by the paint process they used in this year and others starting in the early 1990's. The cars and trucks with the defect where repainted free of charge on a case by case process, mine did this and being an employee of a dealer got it painted free of charge ($5,500 bill). Your truck is now to old and they will not repaint it.

Is it posible to get ink stain off dryer drum


Hello,

Sorry they way to remove a ink stain from the drum (becuase of the heat it's "baked on) is to sand the drum down which will leave raw metal causing the drum to rust
It could be sanded down and repainted but you would need to go to the auto parts store and get some paint for engines since its desiged for high heat

Good luck

Paint is peeling inside the top of the microwave. Does this affect the safety or efficacy of the microwave. Can I repaint it? If so, with what?


Yes you can repaint it. Use an epoxy based paint and clean the metalwork with sand paper first.
The only health question is if you get the flaking paint in your food - yuk!

Duet gas dryer drum has peeling paint


We have had Ge dryers for years and they all have had paint peal caused by snaps and zippers hitting it over time there are limit switches that should protect from excess heat and shut the dryer off. For a long time Ge laundry products were not very good quality in my opinion I am told they are better now. Just keep the lint screen clean to help air flow, my opinion is that it is more of a cosmetic problem than a safty one. When you can buy a kenmore or maytag.

Paint on top inside of lid is peeling off.


Remove the paint. The heat will dry the metal and grease from cooking will keep it from rusting, if it's iron. If it's aluminum it's not a problem.

1998 F 150 regular cab paint peeling problems


Ford will not assist on a 1998 vehicle because of the age.
You can primer and spot paint but it would probably do better if you sanded it down first.
