That dryer is comes apart in basically the same way as the one in this video. You will need to:
1. Remove the two top screws under the lint trap.
2. Remove the lint trap.
3. Remove the back panel.
4. Remove the left side blower housing.
5. And bingo! you should be able to remove whatever is in there.
6. Breath a sigh of relief.
Watch the video, I know it doesn't look exactly the same but looks can be deceiving.
If you have any trouble or questions let me know.

Hi Harold,
There is a plastic ring on the inside of the door that surrounds the door glass...or plastic I should say. It is pressed into place with a bunch of basically one way clips and can be removed very carefully with a thin putty knife. Sometimes breaking the ring or a clip is almost unavoidable. I have successfully done it many times to replace broken handles...also broken a few. Just when you think the ring is about to break it will let loose. Once you have a few disengaged you can work the remaining clips from the inside. Good luck.

That is strange indeed.  You can isolate the noise by removing the motor and agitator and manually turn the transmission with one side of the motor coupling.

In Topic: Whirlpool dryer help with ignitor

Depending on the age there should be a small hole cover on the lower left front side of the dryer were you could observe how the burner is working.  Leave everything together and test the dryer on a cycle that would require it to heat.  You should see the bright orange glow of the igniter first.  If you don't see this first look at the thermal fuse that is located on the back of the dyer behind the rear panel, if that tests good for power flow then look at the igniter next, and lastly the flame switch on the left side of the burner tube.  If you see the igniter glow and the dim then you know that all of the things I listed are ok, and you should be looking at the coil valve. (the two black cylinders located on the top of the burner)

In Topic: Kenmore Washer 80 Series Model 110.25862400 Help

if the transmission was pulled up tight onto its mounting points and the clutch is well seated into the brake housing (the half with the red arrow in your picture) then I would suggest that you look closely at the tub hub and nut located under the agitator.  Usually the noise would occur as the washer is braking after spin, but that sounds a lot like a bad one.  The two notched out tabs should sit down solid on the two tabs on the drive/brake tube.  If the corners are worn down or if there are shinny clean scrape marks on the inside of the hub from it lifting and slipping on the drive tube notches, you should replace the hub.  I have a video available at my web site that will show you how to perform the whole process, with a few tricks. http://www.applianceassistant.com
