Get a putty knife or flathead screwdriver. There are two clips between the top panel and bottom panel about 3 inches from the corner. Push your screwdriver/putty knife straight in and it will release from the top. Give a little pull. There you go!

How do I remove front panel of kenmore 90 series dryer to check for lint build up


Unplug your dryer first, of course. For the lower front access panel there are two screws near the very bottom of the panel. Take off the duct assembly by removing those two screws and a third one at the very bottom of the duct assembly where the bracket is attached. That should do it! Hope this helps!

My Kenmore Series 90 dryer won't run as it appears the door does not hit the actuator. It would appear either the door has moved to a lower position or the actuator has moved up into the dryer. May I ask...


The door switch or actuator is broken. A common problem. On most Kenmore dryers this is replace by lifting the top. Since you haven't given the whole model number I will discuss raising the top on the most common model.

If your model has a lint filter at the top the slide show below should show you how to raise the top.

Kenmore Dryer

Disconnect power to unit. Lift the cover from the lint filter or if yours is the one with a filter and cover together, remove the whole filter. You will see 2 screws under the cover/filter, remove them. Now, you will need a putty knife or a thin shafted straight screw driver to remove the top panel. Push the putty knife or screw driver to "pop" the front top clips. The top panel will hinge back towards the wall and can be left there. Just inside the top of the front panel, you will see 2 screws, remove them. You will see the wires for the door switch on the right side. *** the top of the front panel toward you to gain access to the switch for replacement.

Reverse process for reassembly. Good Luck

I'm trying to install a new heating element to my Kenmore dryer 80/90 series. The rear panel does not come loose after I remove all the screws. I need this to come off to install the heating element. Tks


Replace screws at rear exactly as they were. Entrance for this dryer is at the lower front panel.

Unplug unit first. Place a putty knife in the space between the upper and lower panel at the front of the dryer about 4 inches in from either side to push up the retaining clips while pulling on the panel. This will release the lower panel and give you full access to all the main components.

The heater is on the right in the metal can with the cover at the front. On the left side of the can is a thermal fuse that may be open to turn off the heater. There is also a thermostat that may be bad or interconnecting wiring. Remove cover at the front of the can and disconnect wires to element.Element should slide out for replacement. Look for screws retaining it if it doesn't.

Reverse above process for reassembly. Good Luck.

Dryer doesnt go on


I opened up the lower panel of my kenmore 90 and then removed the blower cover. I found two hair pins lodged in the blower and removed them. I tested the dryer with it open and the blower and drum began to turn again. I buttoned everything back up, and it is running fine now.

We have a Kenmore 110 6092299 90 Series dryer. The motor still runs - but no hot air, at all. I've tried timed and heat dry. Nothing. It just tumbles and it takes 4-5 rounds to dry. At first we were told...


Sounds like the heating element or the thermo-cut off. A vent being clogged for some time, can cause too much heat to build up and make the element or cut off fail. These are the 2 most common things.

How do I take the front lower panel off the dryer?


There should be retaining clips along the upper seam of the panel where it meets the front panel, about 2 inches in from each side. Take a putty knife and insert to depress the clip, while pulling out on the panel at the same time. Release the opposite side in the same manner. The panel will open from the top and be removed.

You mentioned poor heating and longer dry times. The following link will give you some good advice on how to resolve this issue:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r385301-thorough_dryer_advice

Most dryer heat related problems are caused by poorly installed vent ducting, kinked, vent hoses, or clogs. You are right to suspect your dryer may need a good cleaning, but make sure you thoroughly inspect the vent ducting as well, though. If there are large accumulations of lint inside your dryer, there is a clog somewhere. If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

How to remove lower front panel on kenmore 90 series dryer dryer runs a few minuites heats up then shuts off i think it needs lint cleaned from inside unit i'm trying to get inside to do this


On my 7 year old Series 90 Dryer, I
- unplug the dryer
- use a flash light to locate the two black metal spring clips (located about 3 inches from each end of the lower panel along its top edge). They can be seen in the crack between the upper and lower panels.
- use a putty knife, or similar tool, to press down each clip while pulling out that edge of the panel.
- The panel slips off the lower clips easily.
- on some models there is a lone yellow wire with a connector on the end. If it is unconnected to anything, don't go nuts thinking that you have disconnected a wire by accident. Its one of those unused wires on some models.
- collect as many coins as possible before you vacuum the inside of the machine. Leaning the machine forward can often slide hidden coins to the front. BE SURE YOU CAN LEAN THE MACHINE WITHOUT HAVING IT FALL ON YOU. Otherwise, plan on collecting the coins from the vacuum cleaner when you finish.
- replace the panel by first threading the panel on to the lower clips, then closing the panel. CLICK, CLICK. FINISHED.

Congrats you have cleaned it, possibly avoided a house fire and added to the mad money collection. Hope this helped.
