You will need to pull the front panel off. there are screws on the inside of the dry door, may be two on the bottom corners, gently pry up on the top corners with a flat tip screwdriver, disconnect dry door switch. Place panel to the side and lift top up. Remember to unplug the dryer first. hope this helped tim

Cant seem to remove the top of my dryer


Hello Mae;

My name is Peter. I am a retired field service appliance technician.

On most units there are 2 clips in the front that secure the cover to the front of the dryer. You need to push in between the top and the front on these clips and lift to release. You may want to use a plastic spatula so as not to scratch your machine.

On some models such as LG, you have to unscrew the top angle in the back of the dryer. Then pull back about 1" and lift.

The bar things inside the dryer drum (there are three of them) one has come almost all the way off. and one is loose. looks like its screwed from the other side.. cant figure out how to get inside. it...


Unplug the dryer. Open the door and remove a total of 4 screws, 2 on each side of the door opening. Two screws each hold a clip in place and the other two hold the dorr hinges. When you remove the screws on the door hinge, it shouldn't fall off, but be prepared for it to do just that. The door should come off by lifting the hinges upward and pulling the door away. The remaining part of the front panel is held on by 2 clips located toward the top sides of the u-shaped front panel. Pull the panel forward to release the clips and lift the panel upward to clear the two tabs and slots on the bottom. On each side of the cabinet, there is a blackish colored metal bracket that holds the top in place. Remove the fasteners that holds these brackets and remove the brackets by sliding them upward and away. The top should now lift up. You now have access to the fasteners that hold the baffles onto the drum. If , for some reason, you should want to remove the baffles, carefully note the different sizes of the baffles and what order they came off.

Here is the parts list for the drum of your dryer:

My dryer model number is DHDSR46EE1WW AND SERIAL NUMBER IS DL779629A. tHE DRUM IS OFF AND WE CAN'T FIGURE OUT HOW TO TAKE THE DRYER APPART.


MAKE SURE THE BREAKER IS OFF AND THE DRYER IS UN-PLUGGED!!!!!
The way to get it open is to use a flat head screw driver and remove the lower panel below the door.tHE WAY TO DO THIS IS TO WEDGE THE SCREW DRIVER IN THE SPACE BETWEEN THE PANEL AND THE SIDE OF THE DRYER.WEDGE THE SCREWDRIVER IN THE SPACE AND GIVE IT A SOLID PUSH IN ORDER TO MAKE THE PANEL COME FORWARD TOWARDS THE FRONT. THIS PANEL IS HELD ON BY METAL CLIPS AND WHAT YOU ARE DOING IS FORCING THE PANEL OUT OF THE CLIP.sO IF YOU HAVE THE SCREWDRIVER IN THE SIDE OF THE MACHINE WEDGED IN BETWEEN THE PANEL AND THE SIDE PIECE OF THE MACHINE YOU WANT TO PUSH THE SCREWDRIVER TOWARDS THE BACK TO PRY THE PANEL AWAY FROM THE FRONT. ONCE YOU HAVE GOT THIS OFF THE ARE SOME SCREW THAT NEED TO COME OUT AND THEY ARE LOCATED ALONG THE TOP OF THE OPENING WHERE THE PANEL CAME OFF. THESE SCREWS ARE HOLDING THE FRONT PANEL WITH THE DOOR ON IT ON TO THE UNIT. aFTER YOU TAKE OUT THE SCREWS YOU MUST POP UP THE TOP OF THE FRYER USING THE SCREWDRIVER AGAIN. WEDGE IT IN BETWEEN THE SPACE UNDER THE TOP PIECE AT THE FRONT ABOVE THE DOOR AND POP UP THE TOP. tHE TOP IS HELD ON THE SAME WAY WITH METAL CLIPS. THE FRONT AND THE SIDES HAVE CLIPS AND ITY WILL LIFT UP IN THE FRONT ABOVE THE DOOR AND TILT BACK LIKE THE HOOD OF A CAR DOES. bE CAREFUL NOT TO PULL ANT EXPOSED WIRES OUT OF THEIR PLACES.YOU CAN NOW GET TO THE SCREWS THAT HOLD ON THE TOP PART OF THE DOOR PANEL AND ONCE THEY ARE OUT BE CAREFUL TO NOT LET IT DROP. mAKE SURE YOU ARE HOLDING THE PANEL AS YOU TAKE OUT THE LAST SCREW.YOU WILL ONLY BE ABLE TO MOVE THE PANEL OVER TO THE SIDE AS IT HAS WIRES ATTACHED TO IT. AT THIS POINT YOU NOW HAVE ACCESS TO THE DRUM. i HOPE THIS WILL DO THE TRICK AS IT IS TOUGH TO EXPLAIN WITHOUT SHOWING YOU PHYSICALLY. THANK YOU AND GOOD LUCK .
IF YOU GET STUCK WRITE BACK , TGHANK YOU

One of the "fins" inside the dryer is coming off and just needs to be tightened but I cant figure out how to get to the drum to tighten the screw.


The top cover needs to be lifted to the rear of the dryer to access the outside of the drum, but you have to remove the front panel first. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

Open the dryer door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top cover is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket.

Swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top cover lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top cover and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer. The baffles securing screws can now be re-tightened. Reinstall the top cover and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

Unplug the dryer.
Remove the lint filter.
Remove the 2 screws at the lint filter slot.
Place a flat blade screwdriver under the front edge of the top and pry it up. Remove the 2 screws holding the front panel to the cabinet on the right and left sides just inside the cabinet.
Replace the door switch assembly and reverse the above order to re-assemble the dryer.

How do i change the heating element on a Amana electric dryer is there a diagram or drawing also


you will need to take the front panel off, there are screws inside the dryer door, may be two on each bottom corner, and with a screwdriver gently pry up on the top corners as they are clipped in. Then you will have to unhook the door switch. remove the front panel you will need to look at the back top of dryer and make sure there are no screws that are holding the top down, lift up on top of the dryer and it will rest in the up position on the two brackets, the coil is located in the back right hind side an will look like a extended spring. You might want to remove the back upper plate of the dryer as there is usually a diagram in there, of course remember to unplug dryer before working on it. Hope this helps tim

front glides and felt are bad and rubbing metal to metal. get model # go to searsparts.com and look it up. 2 screws on lower front removed (unplug dryer) pull bottom of front out and up till top clips let go be careful of door switch wires. label and disconnect them. check felt seal for damage. check glydes on towers holding drum up. it could also just be s coin or somthing stuck at drum edge.check the blower wheel make sure it's not stripped out or have somthing stuck in it.
