How do I get to the heating element for a Kenmore Elite Oasis Dryer, back or front panel? If it's from a front, how do I remove the front panel?
Answer Karel, You will access he heater, and all components from the front. Remove power to the dryer. Use a putty knife or flat blade tool to release the hold down spring clips from the front corners and raise the top panel. Remove the 1/4 in. hex head screws from the inside of the cabinet, that attach the front panel to the cabinet flange. Lift up and out on the panel, disconnect the door switch wire harness and set the front panel aside. Remove the four screws attaching the bulkhead to the cabinet, and the two screws holding the outlet duct to the base, and remove the bulkhead. You can now remove the drum if you wish, but the heater assembly will be located in the left corner of the base of the dryer, and can be removed.
To get to the heating element, do I remove front or back?
Answer Hello Dave. You must raise the top panel and remove the front of the dryer to access.
