Question about Kenmore Dryers
There is no heat. I want to test with a meter but don't know how to open it to get to the heating element and the thermostat...the manual does not give those instructions. Can you guide me to where I could see how to open this dryer? Thanks!
There are 2 ways to get into your dryer.
1. Pull the dryer out away from the wall and unplug the unit.
see if the back panel comes off. if so just take the back panel off the dryer.
2.If there is no back panel still unplug the unit.
take a flat head screw driver to the front lip of the dryer. You will need to go to the front side edge and instert the screw driver. you will need to pull up on it until you hear it pop. and the dryer top should pop off the unit.
from there you will be able to find the thermostat and heating element.
