Question about Frigidaire Dryers
Disconnect power before working on this dryer.
Place putty knife in the seam between the top and front panel about 2” in from either side. Push in on clip while pulling control panel forward and tilting putty knife handle up, all at the same time. Same on opposite side. Raise top all the way.
Looking down inside dryer on left and right see a screw about 6 inches down. Remove each side while holding front panel in place. Pull top of front panel about 3 inches forward from sides and then pull up. This will disengage the front panel from lower pressure clips and allow you to turn it sideways and expose the dryer interior.
The heater is located behind the drum on the back wall. Disconnect the belt through the small opening at the rear of the dryer. Take careful note of belt configuration BEFORE removing it. Draw a diagram of its travel.
Lift drum about 1 inch straight up at rear...then pull whole drum forward while keeping lifted. This should expose the heater for checking.
Reverse process to re-assemble.
