I don't have a repair manual for White Westinghouse dryer. Need to replace heating element. Not sure how to get to the element


Instructions
    • Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet before servicing the Westinghouse dryer.

    • Insert the putty knife into the gap above the front panel and below the top panel. Lift the putty knife handle up to unfasten the internal locking clips.

    • Lift the top panel from the dryer cabinet. Rest the panel on the wall behind the dryer.

    • Remove the two screws on the top border of the front panel. Lift the front panel straight up to unhook it from the dryer cabinet. Unplug the connector leading into the front panel. Set the front panel aside.

    • Move the idler pulley arm toward the front of the dryer cabinet to loosen the belt. Remove the belt from the drum and pulleys.

    • Lift the drum out of the dryer cabinet.

    • Disconnect the electrical plugs leading into the heating element. Unfasten the screws securing the element to the inside of the cabinet. Lift the element out of the cabinet.

    • Place the new heating element inside the dryer. Connect the screws holding the element to the cabinet. Plug the electrical connectors into the element.

    • Reposition the front panel. Plug the door switch connector into its socket on the front panel. Press the panel straight down into the base. Reinstall the screws along the top of the panel.

    • Lower the top panel onto the dryer. Press down on the panel to lock it into place

My GE electric dreyer, DHDSR46EGWW, is making squeaking noise and a grinding noise. My husband took is apart last night and put back together. When he started it the noises came back and he said it...


It could be the rear bearing or if not it have your honey take it apart again and inspect the rear rollers, if they turn freely then inspect the front bearing assy it is on the the door and if it looks worn down then it is allowing excessive pressure on the rest of the unit .

I have a maytag ldg8200aaw gas dryer. it works and will dry clothes well but makes an extremely loud grinding noise as the drum turns...sometimes it even seems as if it is not engaging...I am trying to...


Your dryer is definitely worth fixing. The blower wheel is plastic 53-0106, These will wear out and get loose. Make noise and the clothes take a long time to dry. Repair Photosa9a0520.jpg

Dryer Making a Grinding Noise


My guess is either roller wheel(/s) have become FUBAR, or the idler pulley is worn. Either way you aregoing to have to open it up to find out what is going on...

Unplug the dryer.

If the filter is on the top of the dryer, remove it and remove the screws that are located underneath it. If it is on the inside of the door, remove the filter.

On the left and right sides of the washer, where the top panel meets the front panel, there are spring clips that hold the top to the front panel. You can slide a butter knife or spackling knife in the crevice and push them back so that the top can be lifted up (like a car hood).

The front is held on with 5/16" hex sheet metal screws, most likely. Remove it.

Now you can see what is the problem. You might be able to put some oil on the wheels to get rid of the sound, but this will most likely only be a temporary solution.

Dryer makes squeaking noise


If it has not been squeaking for an extended time you can get by with just changing the rear drum sleeve bearing (WE3X75). To do this, open dryer door, remove screws going up into top, allowing top to swing up and back. Remove screw holding front panel to side panel near top just under where the top was. Tilt front panel forward and lift off bottom pegs. Swing to side (you don't have to remove wires). Pull drum forward about 6 inches. (you don't even have to remove the belt.) Change sleeve at center back of drum. Make sure to inspect the front drum support slides WE1M481dark ones and WE1M333 white ones (about 1/2 inch x 2.5 inch strips at the top of the front panel which support the front of the drum), as about the time the rear bearing goes, these may be wearing also, especially the one on the left side.

How to remove a back panel of maytag neptune dryer?


You have a choice for which side front door should be on this model. There are 4 screws on front door. Take all 4 screws and pull down the front panel. You will see two metal parts each side which holds top panel. Remove two screws and metal parts. Now you can push up the top panel.
