If this is a 4-6 year old dryer then the kick plate is held in place with 2 spring clips one on each side a putty knife will disengage the clips,, tip once you get one of the sides loose, put a wedge of paper into the crack on the side and move to the other side to work on the ohter clip

Help. I have a model # 58717245 portable Kenmore dishwasher. how do I remove kick plate to find out where leak is coming from?

Just remove the 2 screws located on both sides of the toe-kick plate. If it uses the new plastic fasteners, you just turn them 1/4 turn CCW (so the slot is up and down), and then pry them out.

I have a Kenmore Elite HE dryer full of lint in side behind kick plate

A break in the the element should not have passed a continuity check but there are rare cases. For example, I went to a call in my beginngin years for a dryer that was taking too long to dry. This is the usual complaint when the vent is clogged or the liine is restricted cause poor air flow. There was a kink in the vent so I fixed the vent and off I went. A week later the customer called back with the same complaint. At this point I did what you did and had the same results. After multiple call backs I decided to remove the parts becuase I was looking for a shorted wire. As I removed the element I by chance looked down into the canister and low and behold the element was burnt in two but a place where the element wire was touching the canister and giving a false reading. I guess what I'm trying to say is take the element out and look at it. Also when checking the fuses atleast disconnect one wire because if both are on you can get feedback through other roiutes and give you a false reading .

We a Kenmore Elite clothes dryer (Model # 110 70972990). Monday there was a power outage that happened while the dryer was running. Hours later when the power was back on, we tried to finish drying, but...

There is a thermal fuse. If your lint filter is on top of the machine it is in the rear of the machine behind the removable panal near the exhaust port. If the filter is in the door the fuse is behind the kick plate on the top of the blower housing they are usually white plastic. But a power outage won't blow the fuse

Dryer barrel turns no heat this is a gas dryer 90 series kenmore

remove front cover, this will allow you to remove top cover, then take off drum belt and you will see the gas valve,follow the gas tube to the fire funnel and you will see the ignitor, check for continuity, if its good, then it could be a flame sensor or the control board at fault

Where are the gas solenoids on a Kenmore gas dryer and how do I get to them?

If your dryer has a bottom kick plate pull it off and the gas solenoids are on the left side can’t miss. If you don’t have the kick plate the front of the dryer must come off. The whole front will come off very easy just lift the top up from the front and the remove two screws on each side hold the front on and lift the front up and off be careful of wire’s to the door.
