Question about Kenmore 62802 Electric Dryer
Can you help
Okay...if the illustration is correct that you posted this questions under, you will need to remove the top panel in order to get to the mounting screws for the front panel. The top panel comes off in a couple different way depending on the model.
1. On some models all you do is grasp the top panel along the back corners and pull towards you and lift up.
2. On other models, you insert a putty knife along the front seam (about 2 inches in from each side) where the top meets the front panel and push in to release the retaining clip.
2. Still, on other models, the operator console must be lifted to access the three mounting screws that hold the top in place. If the console has removable end caps, there is a screw under each side that you loosen to raise it. If the console does not have removable end caps, you will need to slide a putty knife under each front corner and push in while lifting up. This releases a retaining clip and the console will raise up. You can carefully lay the console over the back panel in its resting position. Use care not to damage the small plastic hinges.
CAUTION: Make sure the dryer is UNPLUGGED before servicing. The 220VAC terminals are located in close proximity to the console.
Once you figure out how the top panel comes off. There are is a mounting screw on each side of the front panel inside the dryer cabinet holding it to the side panels. Remove these screws and disconnect the door switch and drum light connectors (you may want to write down where these connectors go). The entire panel should lift straight up, then off.
NOTE: When putting the front panel back on, make sure you insert the bottom of the panel on to the small black cleats, first. The cleats insert into a couple of slots on the bottom of the front panel. Once in place, use your knee to hold the panel in place while inserting the mounting screws. Don't forget to reconnect the door switch and drum light connectors.
I hope you find this information helpful. Let me know if you require further assistance.
NOTE: The manufacturer usually places a wiring diagram inside the operator console. Use this as a reference if needed.
