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.

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.

The oven burner will not ignite.


Because the glowbar is glowing does not necessarily make it good.
Turn off the gas to the stove. Remove the oven racks. Remove the bottom oven pan. Remove the flame spreader. This gives you access to the glow bar and gas valve.
Put a clamp on amp meter around one wire of the glowbar. Turn the oven control on to BAKE.
If the glowbar reads 3 amps or less,replace the glowbar ignitor.
If the glowbar reads good,check the burner tube for a white ash buildup. It can be cleaned with a wire brush. Look closely near the glowbar section of the burner.
Check all the wire connections for the gas valve.
If the glowbar is good and the ash deposits are gone and the oven still will not ignite,the next step is to replace the gas safety valve.

I need some help. I have a GE Gas oven and when it starts i can hear the flow of GAS stop and restart. I have changed the Presure Reg valve but it did not solve the issue and any one hlep me? Model...


Turn off the gas supply. Remove the oven racks and the oven base cover to access the glowbar ignitor.
Place a clamp on amp meter around one wire of the glowbar ignitor. Turn the oven on. If the ignitor does not glow at all. Replace it.
If the ignitor does glow and reads less than 3 amps on the meter,replace it.

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 smell, oven not heating up


You gas oven uses a glowbar to both regulate and ignite the gas entering the oven. If this glowbar is faulty, it might let some gas into the oven but it is not hot enough to ignite the gas. That is why you are smelling gas. I would suggest to start by replacing the glowbar (and if this is not the solution, simply return the part for a refund). The part you are looking for can be found online here: http://www.partselect.com/PartDetail.aspx?Inventory=470129&SourceCode=1

It is quite easy to replace. Simply remove the free-standing pan on the bottom of the oven, unscrew the existing glowbar, remove the back cover from the stove and trace the two wires that belong to the glowbar and unplug them. Thread the two wires from the new glowbar through the opening and reconnect to the plugs at the back of the stove. Screw in the new glowbar and test. Most oven ignition problems are caused by faulty glowbard. Good luck.

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.
