How to remove front access panel on whirlpool cabrio gas dryer


Remove the lid screws. Remove the two screws that hold the sheet metal towards the front. This is easier to do if you move the mainboard housing too. There may be one or 2 on the inside mounting the face plate to the machine. Disconnect the ribbon cable off the mainboard located at the top of the dryer. You need to lift up on this to remove the head of the mainboard/display board. Three 1/4 bolts on the kick plate. Pull it down. Take two 1/4 in bolts off the bottom. Unscrew the two on the top of the door housing located behind the main display you've removed, but only turn them a little bit because they are meant to hold it in place and don't need to be completely removed. Disconnect the mosture sensor connector in the bottom left hand corner by the kick plate. Lift up on the door panel to lift the screw holes above the bolts you slightly unscrewed and the door will pop off exposing the inside of the dryer. It's a nightmare.

My Maytag gas dryer model LDG9801AAL has irregular heating. The flame is not 100% bluish even after I cleaned the igniter glowbar. I already changed the dryer sensor but the flame keeps getting shut off...


if the flame is liting the ignotor is good,if the flame goea out after a minute or so then you have to clean out the dryer,unplug it,clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,clean out the cabinet where the motor is and if the vent line is a long run i use a leaf blower to blow it out,pull it off the back of the dryer,stick the leaf blower into the vent and blow all the lint outside.one more thing if the flame lites and after 10 to 30 minutes thee flame doesn't lite anymore you have bad gas coils you can remove the cover down on the bottom right side of the front panel to check this,also you should clean this dryer at least once a year so you don't have a fire and your clothes will dry on time,pull the vent line off the back and see if it runs any better but you still have to clean the lint filter duct too,the block could be in there,bad air movement will cause this to happen.let me know how you make out.

How do I disassemble my dryer?


Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Things You'll Need:

* Putty Knife
* Screwdriver

*
Step1
Unplug the dryer and move it away from the wall. This will provide work space around the dryer.
*
Step2
Open the lint trap door and remove the two screws with a screwdriver. Pull out the lint screen.
*
Step3
Remove the console by unscrewing the four screws that connect it to the top. With the screws removed, disconnect the wiring harness and set the console aside.
*
Step4
Insert a putty knife between the top and front panel 2 inches from the corner. Press in to release the holding clip and pull up on the top panel to remove it from the clip.
*
Step5 With your hands, lift up on the corner to disengage the top from the remaining holding clips. Set the top aside.
Step6 There are two screws at the top of the front panel that secure it to the side panels. Remove the two screws with a screwdriver.
Step7. If equipped with a toe panel, insert a putty knife at the top center of the panel. Press in and release the retaining clip and pull the toe panel off by hand.
Step8. Place boards underneath the front of the drum. The boards will keep the drum in place when removing the front panel. Remove the front panel by swinging the top out and lifting it to remove from the bottom tabs.
Step9. The rear panel is removed by unscrewing the attaching screws from the side panels and bottom with a screwdriver. The dryer is now disassembled and all parts are accessible

Sometimes it will heat for a few minutes and then it won't heat up at all. Seems to be an intermittent problem


Remove the connecting exhaust vent for a test only.
Run a dryer cycle with the vent removed.
If it works,repair your vent blockage.
If the same occurs,check the blower wheel on the end of the motor to make sure it is not spinning loosely on the shaft.
Next observe the glowbar ignitor.
Is it coming on and cycling after every extenguish?
If it comes on and does not light,replace the gas valve coils.

I have an 80 series kenmore gas dryer, will not heat, is it the starter? where can i get one, is it an easy fix? don


it could be the glowbar that ignites the gas,or it could be the thermal fuse in the dryer vent housing,the radiant sensor on the burner tube box that detects the flame and keeps the gas valve open,or the gas valve boost and secondary coils on the gas valve are open or weak and can't keep the valve open any longer,you need to remove the front cover and top cover to remove the drum to check any or all of these components

How do i light the pilot lite on the dryer it is a roper 4 cycle # 9831176


The dryer is automatic ignition through a glowbar ignitor. Open the lid and remove the front panel to access the glowbar. It is on the bottom right at the gas valve.
It will need replacing.

Ineed to put drum belt on can u tell me how


Unplug dryer and shut off gas. Disconnect gas line. Tip dryer onto its front. Remove back panel. Unscrew and remove inside back manifold. Place belt around drum and fit into pulley wheel(s) on motor shaft. (There may be a spring loaded tension arm on one of the wheels. Install the belt on it so that it pulls the belt tight around the drum and pulleys.) Check friction gasket (that the drum rotates on) on manifold and replace it if worn thin. Install manifold. Install back panel. Reconnect power and gas.

Gas dryer wont heat up, blows only cold air.what would cause this


Could be a bad hi limit thermostat. Could be a bad glowbar ignitor. Check the glowbar ignitor at the gas valve, is it glowing bright orange/red? If not. Replace the ignitor.

How to replace heating element Maytag Performa gas dryer pyg2300aww?


Your model number indicates a gas dryer. It does not have a heating element. It has a glowbar igniter,a flame sensor and a gas valve. Either the glowbar igniter is bad or the flame sensor or the gas valve coils or the thermal fuse.
