This is too simple but I'm stumped. I need to replace the timer on my Kenmore gas dryer 110.70902990. (No problem diagnosing this problem - the timer shaft broke off flush w the body.) I can't figure out how to get into the console. It's a 27" Whirlpool-type config but the end caps don't come off and I can't figure out what to unscrew to enable the console to flip up (or back?) Suggestions appreciated.

Thanks, Sōhei, but I don't think so on this model. I can see inside the console through a port for the AC cord, and the end caps are attched to the control support bracket (which runs from one end to the other) with screws. The end caps won't come off until you access the interior to remove these screws. The back cover of the console attaches to the interior with three large bolts, also inaccessible inside, so I can't get the back off either. There are plastic hinges in the upper corners of the back, so it seems that some secret move frees the console to tilt up, probably from the bottom.

Aha! Got it, finally, The end caps have two parts - the main end cover, and a smaller part that covers only the front (that is, towards the user). This smaller front part (#36 on the Sears diagram) can be pried off from the bottom. Underneath these front covers are the two screws you mentioned. I thought the "end cap" was the complete end cover and was trying to pull it off (#8 on the diagram), but clearly I was wrong there. Thanks for helping me figure this out.
