Disassembly Procedures
Front Panel
NOTE: Service access panel must be removed first to remove front panel.
NOTE: Top edge of front panel is held in place by two spring clips and panel locator(s) located on top flange of the front panel.
1. Disconnect power supply to unit.
2. Remove screws securing bottom of front panel.
3. Lift the bottom of front panel outward to release the spring clips and panel locator(s)

.Front Bulkhead
1. Disconnect power supply to unit.
2. Remove front panel, see “Front Panel” procedure.
3. Remove belt from motor and idler pulleys.
4. Remove screws securing bulkhead to front side panels.
5. Lift bulkhead assembly out of slots located in side panels and remove.
6. Remove cylinder glides from each glide bracket.
• Unsnap glide from each glide bracket.
7. Reverse procedure to reassemble.
NOTE: Verify felt seal on exhaust fan cover is airtight on flange of duct.
If seal is installed improperly air flow will be restricted which can cause poor dryer performance.

When installing the cylinder seal it is important that the stitching on the seal face towards the dryer center.
The short flap must be glued to the bulkhead and the long flap left loose.
NOTE: Adhere sealant (No. 22506P) to bulkhead using a continuious bead completely around the entire flange
where the felt seal contacts the bulkhead.

2. Remove front panel, see “Front Panel” procedure steps 1 – 3.
3. Remove screws securing cabinet top to side panels.
4. Raise cabinet top to a vertical position.

9. Disengage motor wire harness terminal block from motor switch by pressing in on the movable locking tabs
(located on each end of the terminal block) and pulling away from motor.
10.Remove screws securing motor mounting bracket to dryer base.
NOTE: When reassembling, be sure seal on exhaust fan cover makes airtight seal on flange of duct.
If the seal is installed improperly, the airflow through the exhaust system will be restricted which can adversely affect dryer performance.
NOTE: When reinstalling motor and exhaust assembly, be sure wire harness on right side is clipped to motor mounting bracket
and is routed along dryer base (between motor mounting bracket and right side of cabinet).
Tab on rear of motor mounting bracket must be inserted into slot in dryer base.
Be sure the belt has been installed on the correct side of the idler lever.

Normal gas burner operation sequence in a gas dryer

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 29 December 2011 · 2,053 views

My old guru, AT1 Crowe, used to tell me, "Look, sailor, how you gonna even begin to troubleshoot equipment to figure out what's wrong if you don't know what right is?" Applying this flawless logic to gas dryers, if the burner in your gas dryer ain't firing up, you gotta at least start by knowing what the correct operation sequence is. Grand Master Reg lays it out for us:

normal operation ..

1) Ignitor glows
2) various clacks ... Gas Valve opens and Ignitor stops glowing
3) Gas and Flame stays on until Dryer heat rises to about 160F, then goes off
4) Flame stays off until Dryer heat drops to about 135F
repeat

How to test the power supply for the heater in an electric dryer for both L1 and L2

Posted by Samurai Appliance Repair Man, in Dryer Repair 21 December 2011 · 998 views

OK ... this is dangerous, but this is what I would do to narrow it down. Essentially we want to find out if power is being supplied to the element from L1 or L2 or both when it is off. You have to be very careful doing this - consider yourself warned ... 240v will do damage to you.

***Unplug the dryer.***

Take one of the red wires off of the heating element - does not mater which one. Bend it out of the way so that it is not close to any ground.

Plug dryer back in.

Turn unit on - it will not heat, but should be sending power to the red wire you have disconnected and to the terminal that you took it off of. Check that - put one lead on the wire that is out in the open and the other on the terminal. You should be seeing 240 volts there. Now open the door. As you said the element continues to heat even though the unit is not running. Now check those points again. Do you have 240 volts? If not, then check each one to ground. Do you have 120 volts on one side? If so which side? With this information we can decide if the power is coming through the motor (centrifuge switch) or the timer.

Please don't electrocute yourself.
