Iwopink --
First you need to remove all the sheet metal screws on the console back panel. The plastic side trim cap pieces are clip-fit. Look carefully at the dis-assembly diagrams online.

My kenmore gas dryer end buzzer goes off and dryer shuts down before cycle is complete


Instructions Things You'll Need:
  • Kenmore gas dryer
  • Vacuum with hose attachment
  • Replacement fuse, if necessary
    Dryer Not Heating
  1. Remove lint from your dryer's lint screen. Remove the lint screen from your Kenmore dryer and vacuum the area behind the lint screen with your vacuum's hose attachment.
  2. Check to make sure that the dryer temperature is set appropriately, and has not inadvertently been turned to "Air Fluff."
  3. Ensure that the gas valve on the supply line to your Kenmore dryer is completely open.
  4. Check the room temperature in your laundry room to make sure that it is at least 45 degrees. Your Kenmore dryer will not operate properly at temperatures below 45 degrees.
  5. Make sure that the dryer outlet grill is not blocked by a fabric softening sheet.
  6. Dryer Not Running
  7. Check to see that the dryer cord is properly plugged in to the electrical outlet.
  8. Check your fuse box to make sure that the fuse is not blown, or check your circuit breaker to make sure that it has not tripped. Replace the fuse if necessary or throw the circuit breaker.
  9. Check the outlet itself to make sure that it functions properly by plugging in a portable device.

Dual action kenmore 70 series washer need to remove agitator


First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.


It sounds as if your "Agitator Dogs" are damaged or broken. These are plastic pieces that allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

Please see the following for how to access and replace them if necessary.


http://www.american-appliance.com/catalog/newsdesk_info.php?newsPath=16&newsdesk_id=136&osCsid=39649e541343127154c647348d1156d9

Basically,

1. Remove the fabric softener dispenser.

2. Using a short flat blade screwdriver, remove the cap.

3. You may see a 1/2" square plastic nut.

I've used a 1/2" extension for a socket set to remove the nut.

4. Pull the top agitator off and turn it over carefully.

You should see the agitator dogs (per the illustrations).

Replace them if necessary and re-mount the agitator, tighten the bolt carefully, put the cap and fabric softener dispenser back on and the top part of the agitator should only turn one way.

I have a kenmore elite model # 20949 and the bottom of the agitator turns but not the top


If the bottom agitates and not the top, the problem is likely the 4 "agitator dogs" designed to allow the top agitator to turn only one way.

This assumes that you have a basic Kenmore / Whirlpool top load, direct drive, neutral drain (it doesn't spin until the pump removes most of the water) machine.

First, see the Sears parts site for your washer:
http://www.searspartsdirect.com/partsdirect/index.action

Enter your model number (###.######) and you'll see a list of major sub-components with diagrams and parts.

Look at the section on the Sears site for Agitator, basket and tub.

See the part "Dog, agitator "

Remove the fabric softener unit, lift the top agitator cap (use a screwdriver) and you should see a plastic part in the center of the top agitator with

a 1/2" square drive.

Remove the drive and lift off the top agitator. Turning it over you should see the 4 "dogs", replace these and the top agitator should turn in one

direction only.

Replace the 1/2" drive, the cap and fabric softener unit and the top agitator should work.

Start switch access


The console has removable end caps. The white plastic end caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the console. Sometimes inserting a flat screwdriver in the slot at the top in the back of the end cap and carefully prying upward, makes it easier to pop them loose. The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front. Once the caps come off, there is a screw under each one. Loosen the screws and the panel it will lift up. There are some excellent exploded view diagrams that you can reference at searspartdirect.com. Just type in the model number you provided and look under the "Top and Console" heading. The end caps I'm talking about are listed as items 14 and 18.

If you have any questions, please let me know. I hope you finds this information helpful.

Taking the front panel off.


If you suspect you have a defective timer it can easily be replaced by performing the following steps:


1. Unplug washing machine... and pull out the timer knob. Some knobs have a removeable center cap and hidden screw. Some are simply slip-fit. Remove the knob.

2. Remove console. This can be accomplished in one of two ways depending on which type of console you have.

a. If the console has removable end caps, the caps lift off by prying on the top from the back of the washer.
The cap will pull off towards you as you are facing the unit from the front of the washer.
There will be a screw under each end cap that you will need to remove.


b. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under the front corner of each side and push in while lifting up.
There is a retaining clip under each side that has to be released.


3. Once the console has been released it will lift up and fold back over the back of the washer in its resting position. Use care not to stress the small plastic hinges that hold it on. They can break easily.

4. Disconnect all power plugs and remove the timer's mounting screws.

5. Reinstall reverse of removal.
