I need to replace the drum assembly. I have a brand new assembly with me. How do I get the old one out?


If it is a front load dryer it will come out of the front. You have to get the top up and then you will see how to gain access by removing the front. If there is a drive belt, you may have to remove the back panel also. Make sure the power is unplugged.

Whirlpool Dryer Various Test Procedures - Part 1


TEST #1 Supply Connections
This test should only be done after confirming proper voltage at the outlet.
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Remove the cover plate from the back of the dryer.
3. Check that the power cord is firmly connected to the dryer’s wire harness.
4. Access the machine control electronics without disconnecting any wiring to the control board.
5. With an ohmmeter, check for continuity between the neutral (N) terminal of the plug and P8-3 (white wire) on the machine control board. If there is continuity, go to step 6. If there is no continuity, disconnect the white wire of the harness from the power cord. Test the continuity of the power cord neutral wire . If an open circuit is found,
replace the power cord. Otherwise, go to step 6.
6. In a similar way, check the continuity between the L1 terminal of the plug and P9- 2 (black wire) on the control board. If there is continuity, go to step 8. If there is no continuity, check the continuity of the power cord for power cord’s L1 wire. If an open circuit is found, replace the power cord. Otherwise, go to step 7.
7. Replace the main harness.
8. Visually check that the P5 connector is inserted all the way into the machine control electronics.
9. Visually check that the user interface assembly is properly inserted into the front console.
10. If both visual checks pass, replace the user interface assembly.
11. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
12. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.
13. If indicators still do not light, the machine control electronics has failed: Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
Replace the machine control electronics. Plug in dryer or reconnect power. Perform the Console Buttons and Indicators Diagnostic test to verify repair.

TEST #2 Machine Control Power Check
This test is used to determine if power is present at the machine control electronics.
NOTE: The drum light is controlled by the machine control on all models.
1. Plug in dryer or reconnect power.
2. Open the door.If the drum light illuminates, then power is present at the machine control, and it is functional. Go to TEST #6. If the drum light fails to illuminate, do not assume the machine control electronics needs replacement. Several conditions may cause the drum light not to illuminate, including a bad bulb. If the drum light does not illuminate, go to TEST #1.

TEST #3 Drive Motor Circuit
This test will check the wiring to the motor and the motor itself. The following items are part of this motor system:
Harness/connection Belt/belt switch Drive motor Centrifugal switch Door switch Machine control electronics
1. Unplug dryer or disconnect power.
2. Access the machine control electronics and measure the resistance across P8-4 and P9-1.
If resistance across P8-4 and P9-1 is in the range of 1 to 6 ohms, replace the machine control electronics.
Otherwise, go to step 3.
3. Check the wiring and components in the path between these measurement points by referring to the appropriate wiring diagram and strip circuit in Section 7.
4. Check the belt switch and drive motor. Access the belt switch and drive motor by removing the front panel/drum assembly. Slowly remove the drum belt from the spring-loaded belt switch tension pulley, gently letting the belt pulley down.
5. Remove the white connector from the drive motor switch.
6. Check for the resistance values of the motor’s Main and Start winding coils. NOTE: Main and Start winding coils must be checked at the motor.WINDING RESISTANCE ω CONTACT POINTS OF MEASUREMENT
MAIN 1.4–2.6 Blue wire in back at pin 4 and bare copper wire on pin 5 of black drive motor switch
START 1.4–2.8 Blue wire in back at pin 4 and bare copper wire on pin 3 of black drive motor switch. If the resistance at the motor is correct, there is an open circuit between the motor and machine control electronics.
Check for failed belt switch. If the Start winding resistance is much greater than 4 ohms, replace the motor.
7. Check the belt switch by measuring resistance between the two blue wires while pushing up the belt switch tension pulley.If the resistance reading goes from infinity to a few ohms as pulley arm closes the switch, belt switch is OK. If not, replace the belt switch. If belt switch is OK and there is still an open circuit, check and repair the wiring harness.
8. Door switch problems can be uncovered in the Door Switch Diagnostic Test; however, if this was not done, the following can be done without applying power to the dryer. Connect an ohmmeter across P8-3 (neutral, white wire) and P8-4 (door, tan wire).With the door properly closed, the ohmmeter should indicate a closed circuit
(0–2 ohms). If not, replace the door switch assembly.

Lift the idler pulley assembly up toward the dryer drum to detach the metal tab on the assembly from the dryer base, and slide the assembly out of the open slot in the bottom of the dryer cabinet by pulling it toward you. Take the idler pulley assembly out of the dryer cabinet and dispose of the part.Slide the bottom bar of the new idler pulley assembly into the open slot in the bottom of the dryer cabinet and push down to set the tab into the hole in the dryer base to lock the assembly into place. Move the idler arm forward and place the dryer belt around the idler pulley by hand.here is the idler you need which is a pretty standard part

http://ep.yimg.com/ca/I/buyitnow64_2165_12635595

you make a loop in the belt to get it in the pulley, thats why you don't have to remove the wheel, and it comes as one complete part

Dryer has power. control lights working. when you press the start button the only sound is a humming noise. will not start.


Check your drive belt which is located around the outside of the drum. The "hummmm" you hear sounds like the motor running. Normaly this motor provides the power to the belt which surrounds the outer surface of the drum (where u put the cloths)........ the belt wraps around the outside of the drum, then around a small pully mounted on the shaft of an electrical motor normally located just below the drum on the inside of the outer enclosure. This motor will be mounted to the the dryer's frame by a mounting plate. This motor mounting plate will pivot (like a hinge)..... it will also have an extension spring hooked to it which provides tension to the drive belt when properly looped around the pulley on the drive motor. When the belt breaks or snaps....... the drum stops spinning..... however the drive motor still runs. Thats the noise you hear! Diss-assemble outer sheet metal providing access to drive belt and replace with correct belt recommended for your model dryer. Caution should be used during repair........ ALWAYS UNPLUG POWER CORD PRIOR TO SERVICING ALL/ANY APPLIANCE's !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No heat coming out tested power have 220 no continuity between leads figure element burned out how do you replace?


In general, remove the cabinet top, then the cabinet front. This should give access to the drum which needs to be removed. You need to release the drive belt tension by accessing the lower back panel to get to the motor where the tension device is located. Remove the screws in the center back of the drum and take out the drum. This should expose the heater assembly along with a thermostat switch and a safety high-temperature switch. Both switches should be 'on' when cold. The element(s) should read fairly low 'ohms' if good. You can sometimes just replace the heater wire, or replace the whole assembly--your choice. Re-assemble in reverse order. Check the condition of the drive belt and outer drum bearings (rollers or sliders) while you have it apart. Hope this helps!

To access the dryer interior cabinet, follow these steps:

1. Unplug the dryer and turn off gas supply before servicing.
2. Remove the lint screen on the top of the dryer and locate the two screws under it.
3. Remove the two screws and the the top panel will lift up.
4. Disconnect the door switch connector plug and the ground wire (if installed). You may have to use a small flat blade screwdriver to unlock the tabs on the connector.
5. Locate the two mounting screws that hold the front panel to the two side panels. There should be one on each side of the dryer. Place your body against the front panel to keep the door closed and to support as you remove the screws.
6. With the front panel screws removed, grasp the entire front panel in the top center and lift straight up to remove.

You should be able to access the burner assembly now. You shouldn't have to remove the drum, but you can if it will give you better access. To do so, simply release the belt tension by taking the idler pulley and lifting up on the wheel. Remove the belt from the drive motor shaft and leave the belt wrapped around the drum. Using the belt as a handle, you can lift straight up and the entire drum will come out of the dryer.

NOTE: The idler pulley may come detached from the dryer cabinet floor when the belt tension is removed. This is normal.

Remember how the belt goes back in the dryer. If you forget you can re-install the belt and pulley by following these steps:

1. Loop the drive belt around the dryer drum with the groove side facing the drum. (Try to line the belt up with the wear marks already on the drum from the previous belt).

2. With the tensioner in your left hand, insert the clip end of the idler pulley into the grooves on the dryer bottom casing with the idler wheel pointing to your left. (The grooves are directly in front of the drive motor.)

3. While holding the tensioner in place, insert the belt UNDER the wheel with your right hand and pull it up and over the drive motor pulley.

If this does not explain it well enough, you can also verify by going to repairclinic.com. Click on the Repair Help link and look for the "Dryer Belt Diagrams" link under the Special Features section on the next page. Look for Whirlpool and refer to diagram H.

Once you have the belt installed, re-install the dryer front panel by holding it as you did previously. Line up the holes on the inside bottom edge of the front panel with the small mounting cleats on the front edge of the side panels. This can be done by yourself, but an assist may make it easier. Once you have the front panel in place, lean against it to hold it in place and install the mounting screws. NOTE: Don't forget to reconnect the grounding wire and door switch connector plug. Without the door switch connected, the dryer will not run. Lower the top panel back in place and reinstall the two screws.

NOTE: Placing a piece of duct tape over the dryer vent chute will help safeguard against dropping anything down in the blower fan assembly. If you drop any screws down the chute, you will need to remove the dryer back panel to retrieve them.

If you still have questions, please let me know. I hope this helps you.

NOTE: To avoid any confusion, your Kenmore dryer is manufactured by Whirlpool. The "110" prefix in the model number identifies the manufacturer.

How to replace the belt


Please enclose the type, and model of your dryer/unit.

Most of the time you can remove the rear of the dryer and access the drum assembly. Some models say you have to remove the front of the unit and access the assembly.
