Lifting the top should be pretty simple. There is an obvious lip that runs all the way around the dryer where the top hinges down and fits on the other body panels. Look between the lid & the front panel on the front of the dryer. A few inches from either front corner there is a metal clip that interlocks with the front panel (If the lip is squeezed together to tightly to see between, just get a putty knife or another thin-yet-sturdy object & work it between the two pieces until you barely see between them.). Once you locate the two clips, get two thin knives or putty tools & push inward from the front on both of the clips. When you have the clips fully disengaged you should be able to lift the lid by prying upwards very gently. Sometimes it takes a little wiggling to get them disengaged, so do not forcefully pry as this can bend the pieces, causing a poor fit or cosmetic damage.
It will be much easier to locate the noise if you take the front panel off as well. From the top your view is obstructed almost completely by the tub. There are normally only 2 or 4 screws near the top on the inside connecting the front panel. Just remove those screws & lift up on the front. Everything should be much easier to inspect. While you are in there, vacuum all the lint out (there's usually lots). Doing so will help airflow & lower the chances of an accidental fire.
I hope this helps you out. I have a similar model & it did not take me very long to figure it out. Hopefully you'll have the same luck!

Why when i push the start button on my dryer and it tries to start spinning the drum but doesnt. sounds like doesnt want to start spinning


There is a belt on the drum that can break or come off the pulleys. You can access it by checking for screws that hold the whole top of the drier down. If there are none, pry up the top with your hands by lifting. You will be able to see the whole inside of the drier. If you are going to be reaching into the machine, unplug it first.

Make Frigidaire dryer model Gleq2152es1 is making a loud sqealing noise and the clothes getting hung in top of dryer.


mostly the noise your hearing is the drum running on the side of machine .the baering/bearings have collapsed in your drier . Most driers these days have the bearing encased in the outer drum and i mean molded to the outer drum . You cant replace them and the manufacturer doesn`t really want you to . Sorry about that = looks like a new drier for you .

Amana electric dryer will heat but only when.../ LEA60AW


Hi there,

It seems there is some wire loose, check on the both side of heating element points.
The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter.

Good Luck!!
Thanks

Need a diagram to change heating element and sensors


unplug the drier pull it out from the wall about a foot facing the drier take a small putty knife and insert it about 3" from the edge push the knife in till you feel the spring clip push in on it and lift the top then repeat that on the other side fold the top back till it leans against the wall look in the drier on the front edge of the front door panel there are two 5\16 in screws there remove them and un plug the light switch and the door switch assembly .grasp the front door panel and give it a quick snap forward to disengage the retaining clips and the door from the drum remove the door .Lay on the floor reach in and remove the belt from the idler pulley and blower motor pulley .Then while standing at the side of the drier grasp the belt with one hand and the front of the drier drum with the other and **** up sharply on the belt to release the drier drum from the rear drum bearing then remove the drum out the front on the rear you will see the heating element there will be one sensor on the heater pan that's the safety or high limit thermostat the tiny one on the drier body is the thermal overload the one on the vent at the bottom is the operating thermostat but its rare to have a problem with them if the drier is not heating the first thing i recommend is check your voltage and connections and don't assume just because its running its getting full voltage check it with a meter driers will run on 110 but will not heat without 220
