Question about LG DLE5932W Electric Dryer
Have removed all screws from back panel and panel still does not come off. Is there another way to access the heat element or is there a trick to removing the back panel after all screws have been removed?
You get into the unit from the top. Use a putty knife about 2 inches in from the right and left in the seam on the front of the unit and push in on the spring clip then lift on the top. After that take the front off and work your way down. The heating elements are on the bottom right when facing the front of the unit.

1) First of all, turn the circuit breaker off to the dishwasher . The circuit breaker is located inside your home's electrical panel.
2) After the circuit breaker is turned off , open the dishwasher door and carefully pull the lower dish rack out of the dishwasher.
3) Then look at the dishwasher's heating element. The heating element is the very thin, circle shaped tube located at the base of your dishwasher.
4) Then locate the access panel to the dishwasher which is directly below the door. Properly remove the screws that secure the access panel to the dishwasher with a proper screwdriver. There are mostly two screws at the top edge of the access panel. To remove the screws, you will need to open the dishwasher door and remove them from the access panel.
5) Then carefully pull the access panel out from the dishwasher. You can use a flashlight to locate the wires that are connecting to the heating element terminals( the two ends of the element). One wire is connected on each of the terminal ends. The heating element terminals are located at the rear of the dishwasher.
6)Slowly pull the wires out of the heating element terminals. Hold the wire at the metal leads where they connect to the terminals. If you hold the wires anywhere else, the wire may get cut in between or wire may break out.
7)Then you will have to remove the nut located on each terminal .The nut secures the heating element tight to the dishwasher . You have to remove the nut. After the nut is removed , then pull the flat washers and the rubber washer from each terminal.
8) Then carefully open the dishwasher door and properly un-clip the heating element from the holding clips in the bottom side of the dishwasher. Then hold the ends of the heating element and without applying force on any other part slowly pull them straight out of the dishwasher bottom. You will see two rubber grommets. That should come up out with the terminal ends. If the grommets does not come up with the terminals and remain stuck up in the bottom of the dishwasher, then pull them out of the holes with bit of force.
9) Now the heating element is out. You can get new replacement element from local appliance part store. You can reinsert the new element in reverse instructions of how you removed the old element.
