Question about Kenmore 63942 Dryer
Posted by Anonymous on
You need to clean out the duct that the lint filter slides into,vac out the inside of dryer where the motor is and if the vent line is long i use a leaf blower to blow out the line.if the filter is on top,unplug the dryer first before you touch it,pull out the filter and remove the two phillips screws in front of it,then remove the vent line and take off the back panel.on the left side you'll see the duct that the filter slides into,remove the 4 screws that hold in on and remove it and clean it out,go outside and make sure the vent is clear,if there's a cage or a screen on it remove it and throw it away,blow out the vent line,next pop the top panel up with a screw driver,there are 2 clips one on each side that holds the top to the front panel around 2 inches from each side in the front,put the screw driver in between the panels and pop it up,on the right side there's a wire harness,pull it apart,it's easier to stick a screw driver in the holder to separate the harness,then there are 2 5/16 inch screws one on each side around 3 inches down from the top,remove them and pull up on the front panel and remove it,vac out the inside of dryer,if you have a shop vac blow all the lint off of the motor and you can blow all the lint and dust forwards so you don't have to remove the drum,some people have trouble putting the belt back on when the drum's removed.do this once a year and you won't have any fires and you won't pop any thermostats or thermal fuses in the dryer.let me know how you make out.one guy wrote back and said he had a birds nest in the vent line and the leaf blower cleaned it all out
