I fix my by taking the three screws out of the back of the unit and blowing a hair dryer on the front control panel. There must have been a build up of moisture in there because that fix it. I hope this works for you.

These are very easy to work on. I threw one out a few years ago, everything worked on it apart from the motor! Look for a home appliance spares retailers close to you or order online. from someone like here

Specifically, this is the part but you have to input the right model number.

I suspect the problem with your dryer is the door switch as opposed to the timer...its the responsibility of the door switch to stop the dryer when the door is opened as well as turning on the light too when the door is opened.

The part number for the door switch is 3406107 it could be purchased at your local appliance parts store or online at;

How do i open up the front of the dryer to repair igniter

On this model, the burner assembly is located in the back left corner. You can access it by removing the back pannel. To remove the front pannel you can lift the front of the top pannel and remove the two screws that hold the front to the sides. Keep in mind the top is held by plastic locks and clips, so be gentle but forceful. Also, the from holds the spring assembly for the door.

How do I gain access to the motor on my Neptune dryer

Open the dryer door.
Remove four screws - two are holding the door and two are holding plastic pieces opposite the door.
With the screws released, the front pannel of the unit will tilt forward and can be removed.
With the front pannel out of the way, two metal retainers found at the top front of the dryer can be released which allows for the top of the unit to be lifted up and removed if desired.
From this point, four more screws found on the front face were removed which allowed the front ducting and front part of the drum to be removed.
The drum was pulled out (work the belt to the rear of the drum while extracting it - optionally, you can release the belt tension by reaching in and removing the belt from the idler)
The motor is accessable.

Professionals may want to pull all the screws from the side pannel and remove it for easier access.

How do I fit a new drive belt for my Kenwood KVT1W Tumble Dryer

I am not familiar with this machine but most dryers have to have the front removed so that you can slip the belt over the drum. I would imagine they have the screws hidden pretty well. Perhaps their is a removable front panel. Some have a few screws on top then you raise the controlpanel exposing the front screws. Just a guess.

Dryer will NOT start

1st reconnect the door switch for that is a safety element. 2nd check the terminals in the back of the machine and unplug it before you open the back pannel . Make sure they are clean and not corroded, then reattach and make sure they are secure. if this dose not solve the problem, you may have a bad or dead spot in the motor. Happy holidays biigg53566
