I need the manual or dis-assembly instructions for this Gas dryer. I have to do a NG to LP conversion. Thank you.

P.S. I know how to do the LP conversion.

Does anyone know how to remove the front mounted control panel and the steam tray so that the front bulkhead can be removed?

That is the one.

Thank you Master.

Just as I suspected. Hidden screws.

Well this service call is not going well at all.

Open the dryer door to remove the 4 screws in the front panel.

Bottom 2 screws come right out.

The 2 on the top are still in the top of the opening.

They will not budge.

I finally tried a impact tool and hammer to jolt them loose.

No dice.

Finally told the customer to exchange the dryer at Sears for one that the screws will turn.

My whole week has been wrought with crap like this.

Hello, jumptrout, my pain-filled friend. Please share a hit of the hooka with me. Allah has blessed us with an abundant poppy crop and an entire regiment of your Ameedican army to help us harvest it...
