First turn the breaker off like now pull it out from the wall about a foot facing the drier take a small putty knife and insert it about 3" from the edge push the knife in till you feel the spring clip push in on it and lift the top then repeat that on the other side fold the top back till it leans against the wall look in the drier on the front edge of the front door panel there are two 5\16 in screws there remove them and un plug the light switch and the door switch assembly .grasp the front door panel and give it a quick snap forward to disengage the retaining clips and the door from the drum remove the door .Lay on the floor reach in and remove the belt from the idler pulley and blower motor pulley .Then while standing at the side of the drier grasp the belt with one hand and the front of the drier drum with the other and **** up sharply on the belt to release the drier drum from the rear drum bearing then remove the drum out the front that will let you replace the screws

I am replacing the outer door panel on a Bosch Dishwasher. 2 Plastic brackets fells out of the inside of the door when I removed the inner stainless panel. How do they fit back inside?

DOH!! Trial and error. If you cant get access to an exploded parts diagram, I would suggest look closely at the bits that fell out and see if you can "nut out" where they came from. If they just fell out , I would imagine that they just "sit somewhere" If there are screw holes in them, when you undid one or more of the door screws, they must have come undone as well. Often, there are screws that don't need to be undone when stripping doors, as they hold something else in place. Look closely, you should find where they come from. Good luck.

One of my dryer fins fell off how to get it back on

Look inside the drum at the place where the fin was on the drum.
Do you see any screw holes now showing?
That will tell you that you need to take the machine all apart and re-fasten the fin on with some screws, unless the holes are stripped out in the fin itself, in which you will need to get a little bigger screws, or buy a new fin.
Oh yes, I have been using an epoxy cement in a tube that has 2 chambers, and this may help you.
I think it would work here, but will not be strong enough to glue the fin back on.
I sort of think it would stand the heat if you used it to help secure the screws into the fin.
Honestly, to me the new fin sounds " hard to get".
Be blessed.

Inside the drum, there are three "panels" attached to to the wall of the drum. I guess they are used to tumble the clothes so the heat is evenly exchanged? One of the panels broke off. ...

It wont hurt anything to use it like that. The screws probably fell outside the drum when they came loose. You can look at the other two to see how they are fastened if you want to put it back on.

One of the 3 wings fell off inside dryer drum.

unplug the dryer,open the door,remove the two phillips screws that hold the door on,the screws are in the middle of the hidges,look at the other side and remove the two screws that are there,pull off the front panel grabbing it at the top where the top screws were and pull forward the bottom of panel is on clips,just slide the panel up off the clips,now spin the drum until the baffle that you need to repair is in the lower right hand corner and you can get to it there.if the holes are to big for the screws add a washer to stop the screws from falling through the holes,sometimes the screws get ripped through the holes making the holes to big for the screw heads and a washer needs to be added,let me know how you make out

One of the 3 "ribs" inside the dryer drum fell off. How does one go about getting to the outside of the drum to reattach the rib with its screws.

older models you take screws off around the top, check for them by lint filter too. then you pry the front(spring clips) and swing it open, back usually has a cheap hinge mechanism.

One of the 3 tumblers inside the dryer fell off.

you actually open the top first if you look between the front and the top you will see two clips. push these in with a small screwdriver to lift the top. then there is two screws holding on the front to get it off.

I have a Kenmore 70 Series gas dryer, model 76712691. The dryer has 3 plastic ''tumblers'' inside the dryer, to help the clothes tumble. Two of the tumblers have fallen off inside, leaving big holes inside...

Pull the dryer away from the wall, there is no bottom on the dryer, so the screws should be on the floor.
You can then pop the lid up from the front and fold it back. When you do, you will see the drum. Roll the drum around until you see the holes and reattach the tumblers.
You can also access the drum from below. Tip the dryer on its back and you can see the drum from the bottom.
Good luck.
