Assuming the two top inside screws have been removed, grasp each side of the front panel, slightly tilt away from cabinet and lift up. (may have to rock back and forth a little)

How to take off control panel on kenmore 970-c85092-00 dryer. dryer runs but no heat


Hello there and thank you for choosing fixya
Here is the full repair breakdown for you
Whirlpool and Kenmore style dryers - how to take apart: disconnect power first - Many dryers that I see have the two piece front, but some are the full front with no lower access panel on the bottom front ( see paragraph below ). The lower panel can be removed by using a straight screw driver to pry it off the upper clips, place screw driver in the middle top area ( below the door opening ) and "pop" it out towards you, sometimes you may have to do this at the side top corners of the lower panel as well. Once un-cliped from the top clips, the panel will have to be lifted up off the lower clips towards you. Once the lower panel is off, you should be able to see 2 screws on the bottom corners of the door panel, loosen these 2 screws off a couple of turns but do not remove them. From here you can see the idler pulley, motor, belt break switch and part of the belt. To go further in the disassembly, lift the cover from the lint filter or if yours is the one with a filter and cover together, remove the whole filter. You will see 2 screws under the cover/filter, remove them. Now, you will need a putty knife or a thin shafted straight screw driver to remove the top panel. Push the putty knife or screw driver here to "pop" the front top clips. The top panel will hinge back towards the wall and can be left there. Just inside the top of the front panel, you will see 2 screws, remove them. You will see the wires for the door switch on the right side, remove the metal clips to allow a more loose wire harness, hold the drum up slightly in one hand and tilt the top of the front panel towards you, you can now lift it off of the screws that you loosened earlier and place it on the right side of the dryer cabinet. On the dryers with a full front, use the same directions but you can ignore the lower panel and the loosen the screws parts. The front will lift off of 2 clips about 6 inches from the bottom and again be placed on the right side of the cabinet. You should undo the belt from the idler pulley and motor pulley, now you are ready to remove the drum. Just grab hold of both ends and lift it out. This style of dryer also has a rear access panel, you can see the operating thermostats, heat element connections from this point.

Kenmore dryer hums/heats up, but drum does not spin!


Depending on the type of door the dryer has, is how you approach the access of these dryers. Mostly though you yank out the filter first.Remove the 2 screws in the filter housing on top.Then use a putty knife to pop the top. Remove the screws holding the front panel on. VERY IMPORTANT! Raise the front up an inch before pulling forward or the panel clips will break! Some models have a panel on bottom. If they do then this panel must come off first. Then you remove the door springs and back off the screws holding down the bottom of the door panel. Then pop the top and remove the screws on top to get the panel out of your way. Yank out the tub. Clean the junk out (send me the coinery) oil the wheels and Idler with temp resistant zoomoil from ace hardware. Use this guide to replace dat belt Kimosabe:
