I got the top off and the front controll panel off but can't seem to get the larger panel with door off. Something is holding it towards the bottom.

How to Replace a Dryer Door Switch on a whirlpool

First, make sure the peg on the door that pushes the switch is in place and the two snap pegs that hold the door shut are not broken. If any of these are broken, replace them first and see if that solves your problem. If not, here's how to replace the door switch: Unplug the dryer. Pull out lint screen. Remove two screws revealed underneath. Slide a 1" putty knife between the top and cabinet at the top front corners on each side, jamb it in while tugging the top forward to release the clips, one at a time. Lift top and lean against wall. If it's a gas dryer, remove lower front panel and loosen two 5/16" hex head screws for top front panel. If electric, loosen same screws at bottom of front panel. Remove two 5/16" hex head screws holding front panel from inside near top. Carefully tilt front toward you, holding drum in place. Lift front panel slightly to disengage bottom screws and remove. Gently lower drum until it stops. Unplug two (sometimes three) wires to door switch on right side. Now the front panel is completely free. Remove two Phillips head screws holding door switch onto front panel. Reassembly is the reverse of disassembly. Make sure wiring to door switch is secured to cabinet so they don't drag on the drum, and are not pinched. Be careful realigning the drum into the door opening so felt seal is inside the front glide ring on the drum. After the front panel is in place, gently hand turn the drum to make sure it is turning properly and the belt in still hooked to the idler and motor pulleys. If the drum falls off the rear rollers, or the belt comes loose, you will have to correct it before putting the front panel back on, as you cannot reach them otherwise. Taking pictures during disassembly will help get it back together properly. It really is not as hard as it seems, you may even be able to replace the switch without removing the front panel. Also, if you have a three wire switch, write down where they go or snap a picture. If it's a two wire switch, it doesn't matter, it will work the same either way. Good luck.

How do i remove the front panel of an armana ned7200tw

To take off the front you have to start by taking off the top.There are two screws in the of the dryer that hold the top on.Take these out then slide the top towards the back of the machine, until the front of the top has disengaged from the posts. The top should be free and you can set it aside.
Next you need to remove the control pannel.You will see four screws on the top that hold the control panel on.Remove these then lift the control panel straight up and set iton top of the dryer.
Remove the Front Panel.At the top of the front panel you will see four screws, remove these.Open the door and remove two screws that are near the lint trap.lean the top of the front panel out and disengage the wires for the door open sensor.Now you should be able to lift the door and front panel assembly straight up.

Removing front panel of LG DLG5988 Dryer

click this link for a schematic of your entire machine you would first look at the back of the machine and unscrew the three screws holding the top panel on and then slide the top panel towards the rear. The next step would be to loosen the screws holding the top of the control and remove those screws as well then mark on a piece of paper where each control connection that you undo is and where it goes to. following the writeing of where each connection goes to would be to remove the control. after you remove the control you will see the upper retaining screws for the front panel remove these as well as any that are on the inside door area and also check down the very bottom as well on some units they do secure the bottom with two screws where as on others there are two clips that go into the bottom. next move the front panel in a diagonal direction towards you and walla your panel is removed if your have any further questions message me back and please remember to rank how this opinion has helped it allows me to continue helping people in similar situations in the future Thanks again Rick

1 of 3 fins on inside is loose & hanging by 1 screw.

Access to the bottom of the baffles for tightening the screws requires the lifting of the top cover which also requires the removal of the front panel. Disconnect power to the dryer prior to servicing to avoid the risk of electric shock.

The top panel can be lifted only after the front panel is removed. Open the door and remove the four screws located vertically along the inside lip of the door opening. These screws hold the front panel to the front shroud assembly.

Once the four screws are removed, grasp and press in on the upper edges of the front panel posts then twist it inward to release the clips holding it to the cabinet. Tilt the top of the front panel and move it away from the dryer.

The top panel is held on each side of the cabinet by two hold down brackets. Locate and remove the 5/16" hex-head screws holding each bracket then swing the bracket to the outside and unhook it from the slot in the top panel lip.

Open the door then lift the front of the top panel and tilt it toward the rear of the dryer.

Rotate the drum until the baffle screws are positioned on the top for tightening.

Reinstall the top panel and the front panel by following the removal steps in reverse order.

How do I get the back off my dryer to replace the belt Model #MDE9806AYW

no no no no need to take the back off, you just need to pop the top off, you should have clips on the left and right from the front inbetween the front panel and top, once you pop top up, on the left and right there are 5/16 th bolts that hold front to panel, take out 2 bolts and install belt around idler pulley and drum

Torn gasket

Catriver(fixya) has a solution:
Remove the top, by removing the 3 screws in the rear. The top will slide off toward the back. Next remove the control panel. Remove the 2 screws on each end on top. Remove the detergent drawer. Remove the torq screws behind the detergent drawer. The control panel will now snap off, pulling from the top and lifting up. Once freed, remove the control panel ribbon cable from the side of the main board. Now remove the screws holding the door switch mechanism in place. Remove the spring that holds the outer part of the boot from the front panel. Now remove the 4 quarter inch screws that hold the front panel and door on the front. Now you can install the new boot with ease. I know it sounds like a lot, but it is not that bad. Just reverse the process when the boot is on the tub. Make sure to have the mark on the boot ^ lined up with the mark on the tub on top.

Dryer tumbler stuck

You have to actually unscrew the top starting from the back of the top, then lift the top off and you will be able to get to the screws that hold the control board which then will have to be disconnected, from there you will need to remove the front by removing the three or four screws from the front hidden by the door also removing the door and removing the screws at the top of the front under where the control panel was and the front of the dryer should tilt toward you and then pickup off the hinges that are on the bottom.
I hope this helps.

Door won't close now

I can tell you where the door latch release is.

Remove the lower front panel. (there are 3 #20 torx screws on the bottom of it holding it on towards the bottom) Once you have that panel removed, reach up just behind where you see the openings for the door latch. the black square hole and black round hol are all part of a larger door latch mechanisim. At the bottom of this mechanisim (cloest to where your hand will be) there is a "tab hanging off the bottom". Pull on the tab for a manual door release.
Please make sure if you found this solution helkful to make sure you rate it. Best of luck with it and drop me a note if you have any other troubles.
