How to remove front access panel on whirlpool cabrio gas dryer

Remove the lid screws. Remove the two screws that hold the sheet metal towards the front. This is easier to do if you move the mainboard housing too. There may be one or 2 on the inside mounting the face plate to the machine. Disconnect the ribbon cable off the mainboard located at the top of the dryer. You need to lift up on this to remove the head of the mainboard/display board. Three 1/4 bolts on the kick plate. Pull it down. Take two 1/4 in bolts off the bottom. Unscrew the two on the top of the door housing located behind the main display you've removed, but only turn them a little bit because they are meant to hold it in place and don't need to be completely removed. Disconnect the mosture sensor connector in the bottom left hand corner by the kick plate. Lift up on the door panel to lift the screw holes above the bolts you slightly unscrewed and the door will pop off exposing the inside of the dryer. It's a nightmare.

Whirlpool dryer did not work when press start button, it beeps twice

Remove the 2 screws that hold the front bottom kick plate in place and remove the panel. Check the "thermister" located on the blower housing for continuity. If it is bad, here is the part to order.

Whirlpool Carbrio dryer buzzing noise while running. Works OK just keeps buzzing off and on while drying. Not a grinding sound.

OK, remove the 2 screws on the front lower kick plate. Run the dryer to see if the buzzing is coming from the motor or from the burner area. Post back your results.

F02 error on whirlpool front load washer. How do you open the kick panel?

Depending upon what model you have, most kick plates are removed by taking the 3 or 4 (1/4 inch or torque) screws out located underneath the kick plate. Note that not all front load washers have a kick plate so be sure that there is a prominent gap between the upper most region and the small lower region being the kick plate.

I need to replace a sensor kit on a whirlpool dryer model len2000pwo. should i go in from the back of the dryer or front/top!!! The part was in the dryer drum when i found it so im not sure the best...

Disconnect the power source to your dryer before you begin to open its cabinet. Either unplug the unit from the wall outlet, remove the appropriate fuse from the fuse box, or flip the appropriate breaker in the circuit breaker panel.

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 the unit.

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.

How do you install a heating element on a whirlpool WED5300SQ0 Electric Dryer.

There are 2 kinds of heating elements.
One is in the front and one is in the back.
If you have a kick-plate in the front, remove the plate by pushing in the 2 clips with a putty knife. Then you will see the element on the right side. You need to remove a couple quarter-inch screws and then pull it out, once the 2 wires are removed from the element.

If you don't have a kick plate, you need to take the entire back panel off by removing about 10 quarter-inch screws around the parameter.
Then you can easily see the element and just remove the 2 quarter-inch screws and wires and pull it down and out.

Best of luck and please feel free to e-mail me if you have any other questions.

Kenmore dryer

The belt you will need for that unit is part # 341241. These belts will fit almost all Whirlpool and Kenmore models except for the DOTT (Dryer Of Tomorrow, Today) dryers. A DOTT dryer is a Kenmore model only, and has a front kick plate and the lint filter in the door.
