The front panel clips usually hold by friction. Just pull gently on the upper corners and it should hinge down.

I DO NOT HAVE NATURAL GAS AVAILAABLE WHERE I LIVE/


You can order an LP conversion kit to change it over to propane. Most kits cost between 30 and 60 dollars, and require you to take the drum out of the dryer to access the gas valve for the change over.

How do I change the orifice on my kenmore dryer from natural to a LP orifice?


More and more, you have to change the gas valve AND the orifice due to the liability issue of changing only the orifice and not doing a complete conversion. If, and this might be a big if, a conversion kit is available, you will need the model # of your dryer to order it. The kit will come with a spring and a tension nut for the gas valve and the orifice you need. Instructions will come with the kit. Follow them to the letter. An improperly installed conversion kit, or just changing the orifice, can be very dangerous. LP operates at a higher pressure than the natural gas the dryer was built to use, and an improper conversion presents a significant fire hazard.

I have Natural gas and am moving where it will be hooked up to lP instead. What do I need to convert to LP from Natural Gas


you will need an L.P. conversion kit. the kit contains a small spring, a new brass orifice and a new brass cap that fits on the gas valve. some kits are minus the spring. you will most likely have to remove the burner to put the new orifice in. any appliance repair store will be able to order you the kit. have model and serial number handy. good luck with your move into the country.

I need access to gas valve in my Maytag mdg5500aww dryer


When I posted the question, I had not removed the front of the dryer. I thought the gas burner etc. had to be accessed from the back. As soon as I removed the front of the dryer I realized it was all up front and accessable. Conversion was straight forward from that point.

GE Gas dryer getting too hot


The gas burner valve is not the correct one for LP gas. You have to convert the valve as well as the orifices. The clicking is because it is over heating and cycling on and off o the high limit (safety thermostat)

Kenmore 90 lp conversion


  1. I think the jet will have to be replaced--I recommend you go to a Sears store with the manual of the unit and request help. I you do not have the manual record the data from the data plate and bring to the store. The burner is probery underneath the unit. Access would be either the rear or underneath. Try calling also.

Changing a gas ge dryer to a propane----convertion package we25x10014 directions show a picture of the control panel with 4 plug ins at the bottom and changing out the last one on the right for the new...


Converting your Natural Gas Dryer to Lp is taking it from a lower BTU gas "Natural" to a higher BTU "LP" value. The orfice on a LP gas valve is smaller because you dont need as much gas to make the same amount of heat. make sure you change the orifice. The little plug goes in the regulator of the gas valve, changing the valve from a low gas pressure Natural to a Higher Pressure LP.

If the kit doesnt look right, did you get the correct one?

Maybe you should call you LP provider they can do the conversion for you.
