Just remove the control panel. The screws are accessible from the drying cabinet. There will be 5 screws holding the bottom panel in place from the top. It tilts out then up off the clips.

How do you drain a commercial cool unit


Remove the front lower vent cover and there should be a water tray/pan that should be accessible. If not, the whole refrigerator unit needs to be removed to gain rear lower access to the water pan.

Dryer noise


First check the tumblers inside the drum to make sure that none of them are loose. AFter that you'll need to gain access to the inner workings of the machine.
There are 4 different designs that used on these dryers and each one has its own specific way to access the element, blower, fuses. etc In this FAQ I will describe each design and method to access for each one. ---------------Design 1: This design for this dryer has the heating components located in the front of the machine, which means to gain access you'll have to lift the top and remove the front. You can visually verify this specific type because the lint screen is located inside the dryer requiring you to open the door to gain access to it. As with any do itself repair, always unplug the machine before you start. Here's the method of access listed in numerical order. 1) Remove the lower kick plate by pressing in the two clips, one on each side located in between the upper and lower portion of the front In doing this you'll gain access to the element, located on the right hand side facing, the high limit and thermostat fuse located on the element, the cycling thermostat, located on the blower housing, and thermal fuse, located next to the cycling thermostat. In gas models the gas coils and ignitor may be located on the left hand side facing. If changing the belt, rollers or motor, continue to step two. 2) Lift the top by placing a flat head screwdriver in between the front and the top of the dryer and pry it upwards. In some cases there are two metal clips, one on the left and one on the right, that need to be pushed forward to lift the top up. 3) With the top up and the kickplate removed take the door springs off, one on each side, and remove the door by taking out the 4 screws one upper left and right, one lower left and right, off and don't forget to disconnect your door switch-----------------Design 2 : In this design the heating components are located in the rear of the machine. All you have to do is get behind the dryer, remove the 9 1/4" screws and remove the panel. The element eill on the right had side with the two fuses located on it, the cycle and thermal fuse will be on the lower left on the blower housing. To access the belt, rollers etc, remove the lint trap on top, take out the two screws that are underneath it and using a flat head screwdriver pop the top up. Next, located the two screws that are on the upper left and right inside front of the machine that hold the front. Remove these and then you'll be able to lift and pull the dryer front completely off.--------------Design 3 : In this design the components are located in the front of the machine, but to access them you'll follow the method used in design 2 for accessing the belt, rollers, etc.take out the two screws that are underneath it and using a flat head screwdriver pop the top up. Next, located the two screws that are on the upper left and right inside front of the machine that hold the front. Remove these and then you'll be able to lift and pull the dryer front completely off. The set up will be like design one.--------------- Note: The best way to determine if your dryer is desgin 2 or 3, remove lint trap and pop the top. When you've got this done, you'll be able to look in between the inside rear wall and the rear panel and see if the element, fuses atc are there. If not it will be design 3---------Design 4 : HE, HE2, Duet, etc the way you take the top off is a little different. For these machines, there are 3 to 4 screws located on the top back side you'll need to remove, and then the dryer top can be slid back and removed. From there you'll remove the kickplate in come cases by taking the 3 or 4 screws off located at the bottom of the kickplate. With that removed you will be able to remove the front, but only after you remmove the control panel. The In some cases the components will be located in the rear like the second design

Sg7800 maytag dryer stopped giving heat


Sounds like burner not igniting. On front of dryer in the lower right there should be a gas valve/burner access panel. Usually you just have to pry out at bottom of panel & swing out and up to remove. This gives you access to valve coils and igniter. With panel removed set timer for heated dry and start dryer, observing first the igniter which should glow bright orange-red, then after a couple seconds you should hear a "Click" which is gas valve opening and a blue flame ignites for heat. If no glow is seen after a few seconds or at least a minute, igniter is bad, if it does glow and no click is heard from the gas valve, the coils (electro magnets) on the valve are bad, or the "Flame present" sensor is bad. Chances are it's either the coils or igniter.Try this on all heat settings, if you get heat at only one setting it might be in timer contacts, but not common. Again you can repair/replace both the igniter (usually just plugs into a receptical) and the coils (2 donut looking objects on the gas valve, replace both.) Access door may be on back if not on front, but normally their on lower right of front.

My kenmore 500 series dryer will not turn on! it has power to the unit


The dryer could think the door is open so it will not start the cycle when the start switch is pressed. You will need to remove the door switch to gain access to the wires on the switch. Remove one wire and tape it to the other wire. Try the dryer to see if it starts the unit. If it does turn the timer to off and order a replacement switch. If drum did not start to turn then you want to lift the top of the dryer to gain access to the start switch. Again remove one wire and touch it to the other wire to see if the drum starts to turn. If it did order a new start switch and replace it. The next item to check is the belt around the drum making sure it has tension on it. If not you will have to remove the front lower panel making sure the belt is around the motor pulley and tension rollers. Make sure the motor has voltage by using a volt meter. I do not have the schematics for this unit, and the last Item would be to check the thermal cut off and to trouble shoot the timer circuit.

How do you remove the top/front of dryer?


Like a lot of the newer "energy efficient" models there is no longer an easy way to get to this stuff.
There are screws on the rear of the top that once removed will allow the top to slide back a little, then lifted off to expose the innards of ur machine. The front of the dryer has to be removed to gain access to the drive train. Some of these LG "laughing greatly" machines have to have the front electronic controls removed to be able to access the top screws that attach the front of ur dryer to the chassis, lucky you. Once you gain access to the screws for the front of ur unit, disconnect the door switch harness, pivot the front out slightly at the top and lift, the bottom is retained by clips. Then you can view the inner front support, rollers, belt, tensioner etc..
best of luck, and have fun,

Kenmore gas dryer heats for several minutes ,then goes cold


I'm haveing the same problem with my frididaire gas dryer. I replaced the ignitor and cleaned the inside parts with a vacume and still having similar problems as yours. I think I will replace the temp. sensor that is attached to the flame tube inside the dryer next. To gain access to the inside parts you will need a putty knife to release the top panel. Just slide the putty knife along the top seam in front of the drryer. There are 2 clips that realease the top peice. With the top lifed up you will see 2 phillips head screws attaching the front panel to the dryer. Remove those screws and lift upwards and the front panel will lift right off the unit.carefully place the front panel to the side without damageing any wires attached. Then all your gas assembly parts will be visable in the bottom left cornner of the unit.

hope this helps,

I have a whirlpool duet gas dryer. how do I open


1. Unplug the unit while servicing inside.
2. Remove the lower kick panel under the door by removing the three 7mm screws under the bottom edge of the panel. HINT: Use a couple of blocks of wood to prop up the front feet of the washer to gain better access to the screws. Once the screws are removed the panel should drop down, and then pull off. If the panel becomes stuck, a slight tap on either side will dislodge it.
