On most front loading machines you do not take the back off..
You take the top and front off to expose the drum,belt,motor,etc.

Belt come off! Need access


depending on the way the dryer is built you may need to take the dyer's top panel off then the front panel of the dryer to get to the internals while laying the dryer on its back to make it more easy to put the dryer back together when done if the belt however has snapped you can actually buy belts for the dryer you own er....one more thing make sure its unplugged before doing any of this but while its apart take your time to clean the dryer out with compressed air this will prolong the life of the dryer you own as well all dyers are easy to take apart and put back together as everything just snaps into place or screws back into place (PS: i worked on a LG TROMM dryer and it was easy as pie to put back together after cleaning and diagnosing it)

My dryer is not drying i noticed there was no air coming out the vent out side


disconnect the exhaust vent from the back of the dryer and see if you have any air coming out of the back of the dryer if you do you will most likely have to replace the exhaust vent line that goes from the back of your dryer to your outside vent. Blockages of lint build up over time and should be cleaned at least once every 6 months. If you find that you have no air coming out of the back of the dryer when you remove the vent line message me back for further diagnosis. I await your reply
Thank you

When the dryer is turned on it makes a humming noise. The bin inside turns manually. Cleaned out vents took the back off and back off and vacuumed the back. Is there a belt? Dryer is less than 2yrs old

There can be many reasons why your dryer will not start or turn...

The most common causes are the belt breaking or jumping off, or the motor goingbad...

Lg Gas dryer Dlg0332w drum making noise


The drum on my DLG0332W was also making noise at the back of the dryer...kind of a thump thump thump as the drum rotated. My dryer is only 4 years old. I got brave, downloaded the service manual and opened up the dryer. I found that the drum's welded seam was starting to separate where the roller wheels were coming into contact with the drum at the back of the dryer. Looks like a new drum is in order.

Back & top of dryer get hot, clothes take long time to dry.


First thing to check for is blocked airflow. Check the dryer as well as the venting from the back of the dryer to the outside of the house good airflow is neccessary. You could remove the venting from the back of the dryer and run a load to see if that helps. Do not leave it off as it is exhausting lint and if a gas dryer spent fuel.

Kenmore dryer


IF THE DRYER COMES ON BY ITSELF WHEN THE TIMER IS SET AND THE DOOR IS CLOSED, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED. THIS WILL CAUSE THE END OF CYCLE SIGNAL TO BUZZ WHEN THE TIMER IS IN THE OFF POSITION(END OF CYCLE).UNPLUG THE DRYER, REMOVE THE BACK PANEL OF THE CONSOLE, AND REMOVE ONE WIRE FROM THE PUSH TO START SWITCH. ISOLATE IT SO IT ISN'T TOUCHING ANYTHING AND PLUG THE DRYER BACK IN. SET THE TIMER AND CLOSE THE DOOR. IF IT DOESN'T START UP OR BUZZ, UNPLUG THE DRYER AND REATTACH THE WIRE. PLUG THE DRYER BACK IN AND SEE IF IT STARTS BY ITSELF. IF IT DOES, THE PUSH TO START SWITCH IS SHORTED AND WILL NEED REPLACED.
