First, disconnect the dryer from the power source

.

To remove the front panel:

First, remove the top panel by removing the 2 screws along the back edge of the top panel.

Pull the top panel to rear 1/2 inch and then lift the top off.

Remove the console by removing (4) screws, (2 on each side), holding the console to the front panel and roll the console forward.

Disconnect the wiring from the control board and lift the console off.

To remove the lower front access panel:

Place a 2x4 under the front of the dryer and remove the (2) screws holding the panel to the dryer base.

To remove the front panel:

Remove the (2) screws, one on each side, at the bottom holding the front panel to the body sides.

Remove the (2) screws, one on each side about 8 inches down from the top, that secure the front panel to the body sides.

Pull out on the bottom of the front panel to release the spring load tabs.

Lift up on the front panel to release the (2) tabs at the top, one on each end, and swing the panel out.

Disconnect the wiring from the drum light, the door switch, the ground wire, and wiring harness from the moisture sensor bars.

The thermistor will be located and mounted on the front of the white blower housing.

Disconnect the (2) wires from the thermistor and the (2) screws holding the thermistor to the blower housing.

Reverse the procedure to re-assemble the dryer.
