Opening the cabinet for newer Whirlpool brand models
starts at the control panel. Begin by removing the end caps found at
either end of the console. Lift them from the back, and then pull them
towards you. There will be two screws holding the console in place.
Remove the screws, and then slide the console towards you and flip it
up. You will find an additional three screws at the back of the cabinet
top. Remove these and slide the cabinet top towards you and lift it off
Proceed by removing the kick-plate. There are two
spring catches that need to be disengaged before you can remove the kick-plate. Each spring catch is found about four inches in from each
side. Use a putty knife or some other thin and flat object to wedge in
between the front panel and the kick-plate. Push down on the clips with
the putty knife to disengage.
Open the dryer door and remove the screws that are
holding the hinges to the door. Tilt the door up and pull on it gently
to remove it. Continue the dismantling process by removing all the
screws you find that are holding the front panel to the unit. There will
be door switch screws, ground wire screws, and other screws holding the
front panel to the bulkhead.
Reassembling the entire unit is basically the disassemble process in reverse. Replace the front panel of your dryer. Replace the dryer door, and then replace the kick-plate. Reattach the cabinet top and then push the control panel back in place and reattach the two end caps.
