Re: How to take apart a dryer?
First of all, UNPLUG the dryer if you plan on servicing the inside. There are still dangerous voltages present with the dryer turned off.
Lift the front of the dryer slightly in order to place a block of wood under the front feet (I recommend a couple of small pieces of 2 x 4). This will give you access to the screws without having to hold the machine up at the same time. There should be a couple of torx style screws under the bottom seam of the panel. Remove these screws and the panel should drop down and come off. Sometimes these panels can stick. If this occurs, tap on the side slightly and it shoudl come free. I hope this helps you. If you have any further questions, please post back with your comments.

Unplug the dryer before attempting any repair works.
The bottom front panel is secured to bottom of the top front panel by two securing clips. Insert a flat-bladed screwdriver between the top front panel and the bottom front panel as shown then pry the panel out then lift it off the cabinet.
Install the bottom of the bottom front panel first when reinstalling then push the top back into position until the clips engage.
You need to remove the panel at the top, then you remove the top, then the front, screws for front are inside of dryer. Go to www.appliancepartspros.com and put in your brand and model number. It will pull up all parts for your dryer including schematics that you can enlarge and print of the whole breakdown of you dryer. This will really help you to take apart and put together. Gas coils are at bottom under drum.
you do not need to remove the motor but you do need to take the front of the dryer off the door and front panel come off one of 2 ways. Ckeck at the very bottom of the dryer front panel if you have 2 screws there take them out and lift from the bottom carefully. Disconnect the two wires that connect to the door switch and un hinge the top from there you should be able to see wht else you'll have to take apart. If you don't have those two screws, then you have to pry the top up with a wide flat screw driver about an inch and a half in from edges from there look inside the front panel toward top and take out 2 screws and pull top of front out disconnect door wires and lift out. Good Luck
Sounds like motor is stalled. Remove the lint filter, look inside down toward the bottom left corner at the blower wheel. Something may be jammed in the blower wheel. If difficult to see, TURN OFF POWER TO MACHINE, remove bottom access panel. 2 to 3 screws on bottom of panel. Remove lint housing (3 to 4 screws) and inspect blower wheel for debris.
does the dryer have a gray back panel if it does then take it off the fuse may be bad its a small 1 in in diamiter white with 2 wires going to it replace it if the dryer has a front bottom panel in front then it is in there fuse is bad that is your problem
