    there are two coils on the burner assembly that need to be replaced. I cannot access through the front without somehow pulling out the tub in order to access the two bottom screws.I seems rediculous that there is no simple access the burner

    By the way it is model LGR5636PQ0

  • ancientlurps Oct 03, 2009

    the only way to pull the front panel is to remove the 2 bottom screws which are blocked by the drum.

  • ancientlurps Oct 03, 2009

    pulling the door off does not help with access to those two screws

Obviously, I am an idiot. The front panel comes off quite easily as it is held in only by two screws on the top and two sliding brackets on the bottom. Once off the coils are right there.

Thanks again

Dryer heat not working

Without knowing your problem, I would guess that the heating element has burned out. This is a common issue with many dryers, regardless of brand.

The hearing element in a clothes dryer is like any other heating element, such as in a space heater, heat gun, or hair dryer. It is basically a continuous coil that is held in place by insulators, usually ceramic.

As the element ages, the coil becomes brittle and can often break. When a breakage occurs, the circuit is no longer complete and will not produce heat.

Replacing one is fairly simple.

  1. The first thing that you should do is unplug your dryer.
  2. Once unplugged, remove the exhaust duct.
  3. Use a screwdriver to remove the electric access panel in at the rear of the dryer.
  4. Locate and remove the heating element.
  5. Inspect the element for a break in the coil. The problem is not always obvious so it may be good to do a continuity test on it.
  6. Replace part if necessary. Elements will usually run $20 or so.
  7. Assemble in reverse order and test.

This website has some really great detailed step by step instructions on replacing a heater element.

Good luck.

Not drying clothes

If you have an electric dryer the heating coil inside the dryer has a broken wire. The heating coil unit needs to be replaced. To change the heater you need to have access to the dryer from both sides without the electrical power connected. Some of the heaters are accessible from the front by removing the front panel of the dryer, some are accessible from the back. The service manual for the fryer will show the "exploded view" of the dryer this tells you which direction. If you are handy the replacement is not difficult. You will need some tools but nothing out or the ordinary..

The dryer start and the drum spins around but there is no heat...I checked the circut breaker and everything there seems fine. I tried to take the back off the dryer check the heater but I could not get...

The element access is from a panel on the bottom of the front panel or you will have to take the front completely off which is a lot easier than taking the back off. The front comes off with just a few screws and the top may actually hinge back a little. The element should be at the right hand bottom of the dryer. You may visibly be able to see a break in the element coil .

There is a video on YOUTUBE on the complete disassembly of the Brada. Follow that to access the heating element for removeal. You can also remove the discharge piping on the back to access the heating element electrodes. remove the wire clips and put an ohm meter accross. you should have some kind of resistance on the meter. There is also a video on how to use an ohm meter.

Dryer is not heatring up

Sounds like your heating element may be burned out. On initial start, if the drum rotates, and you have blower air flow but no heat, I would suspect that the heating coil (element) has an "open" in it, i.e., it has literally burned through at one location in the coil, usually at or near one of the support insulators mounted on in the interior rear of the dryer. To replace, access to the interior of the dryer from the front is necessary. Take care installing the replacement coil in that any residual tension on the coiled element at any location along its length will, over time, result in premature, stressed-induced, thermal fatique of the coil. To avoid premature failure, all sections of coil between support insulators should be completely relaxed after installation and prior to initial heating.

I have Whirlpool Duet Dryer that has a noise.

It is common for small items (such as coins) to get stuck inside the dryer drum baffles. You can easily remove them without disassembling the entire dryer. The screws that hold them in place are located on the outside of the dryer drum. In order to access, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the dryer.
2. Remove the top panel of the dryer by removing the three screws located in the back of the dryer holding the panel in place. Once the screws are removed, the top panel slides back, then lifts off.

Each drum baffle has two screws holding it in place. Remove the screws and the baffle will drop into the drum allowing you to easily check inside each one.

Another source of dryer noise is something caught in the blower fan housing. You will need to remove the lower toe panel directly below the dryer door to access. Follow these steps:

1. Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen (the blower fan cover will not come off with the lint screen in place).
2. Locate the screws that hold the toe panel in place along the bottom front edge of the panel. HINT: Propping the front feet of the dryer up can give you better access to reach the screws (a 2x4 works well for this). With the screws removed the toe panel will drop down, then come off.
3. Remove the screws that hold the blower fan cover in place.

Inspect the blower fan housing for any objects that may be vibrating against the fan blades.

If you still need further assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this helpful.

No heat out of dryer

These units usually have a disk thermostat near the heater coils that snaps open when the unit overheats. Only way to know is to disassemble it usually but you may be lucky and the switch is accessible from the rear. It's a bimetallic switch and available at any repair shop.
