Face of the drier

When you say the face of the drier, do you mean the actual front cover with access cover? I thought it would be easier to access everything from the rear? Thanks in advance

    Thanks for clearing that up. Do I need to brace the drum when taking off the front cover? Thanks.

  • DSLG Apr 28, 2008

    My drier has intermittenly been working (drum will not spin and you can hear the motor humming). I was going to take off the cover and inspect the belt and motor. Any suggestions?

  • DSLG Apr 28, 2008

    Thanks for the tip. I have a long arm grabber that I have used to pull lint out of the filter holder area but I have never seen anything substantial down there. I guess I will have to take the cover off. Thanks again.

No, there is no access panel in the rear of the dryer.  Everything comes off from the top or the front.

    No, the cover will come off without the drum falling out.  There is a front support for the dryer that holds the drum in place.  When you take the support off, the drum will come loose but won't fall out of the dryer.  What are you trying to do??

  • Richard Lew Apr 28, 2008

    You may have something stuck in the blower fan that is preventing the motor from turning.  Remove the filter screen and look down in the filter holder area.  See if you can see something jammed down there by the blower.  If there is, try to pull it out.  If it doesn't come out easily, you may have to remove the front cover to get to it.

Drier will keep stopping mid cycle with a filter led coming on...even though the filter is cleaned.


Experience shows that a fair percentage of fluff actually enters the body of the drier, and obstructs airflow. This causes the heater element to exceed safe temperatures, and a 'Filter' warning occurs.

Unplug the appliance, remove the rear cover, and remove what fluff you can, using a clean paintbrush to reach behind certain cover plates (etc.).
This should solve the problem.

The dryer start and the drum spins around but there is no heat...I checked the circut breaker and everything there seems fine. I tried to take the back off the dryer check the heater but I could not get...


The element access is from a panel on the bottom of the front panel or you will have to take the front completely off which is a lot easier than taking the back off. The front comes off with just a few screws and the top may actually hinge back a little. The element should be at the right hand bottom of the dryer. You may visibly be able to see a break in the element coil .

Unsure how to access drier to put on new drive belt


Here is my own solution...
Disconnect from mains (of course) remove top (2 screws at back near top) Unplug electric connectors (on back panel, top RHS). Make sure note what goes where! Lie unit down on front remove screws (2) holding the drum spindle cover (centre of back) and remove cover pop off the circlip holding drum spindle, and washer unscrew back panel - hex headed screws round outside of back Remove screws at bottom of back panel which screw into the plastic vent housing (3 I think) Lift whole back off. (there's a plastic lip at bottom - need to pull away from this a bit) The drum spindle will be unsupported now, so don't move unit Full access now to drum and motor beneath Get and put on new belt reassemble.
Actually, having got into unit, found could not get belt from local spares shop (it had closed down), so bought new drier!

My dryer drum is no longer turning when I press start.


On some dryers, actually the front comes off easier. Yes, you need a better view down there. Make sure the dryer is unplugged! Let me know what you find.

Drier noise


Lifting the top should be pretty simple. There is an obvious lip that runs all the way around the dryer where the top hinges down and fits on the other body panels. Look between the lid & the front panel on the front of the dryer. A few inches from either front corner there is a metal clip that interlocks with the front panel (If the lip is squeezed together to tightly to see between, just get a putty knife or another thin-yet-sturdy object & work it between the two pieces until you barely see between them.). Once you locate the two clips, get two thin knives or putty tools & push inward from the front on both of the clips. When you have the clips fully disengaged you should be able to lift the lid by prying upwards very gently. Sometimes it takes a little wiggling to get them disengaged, so do not forcefully pry as this can bend the pieces, causing a poor fit or cosmetic damage.
It will be much easier to locate the noise if you take the front panel off as well. From the top your view is obstructed almost completely by the tub. There are normally only 2 or 4 screws near the top on the inside connecting the front panel. Just remove those screws & lift up on the front. Everything should be much easier to inspect. While you are in there, vacuum all the lint out (there's usually lots). Doing so will help airflow & lower the chances of an accidental fire.
I hope this helps you out. I have a similar model & it did not take me very long to figure it out. Hopefully you'll have the same luck!
