Kenmore Dryer model 110.62622100

When the dryer is running, i can feel heat, so it's safe to assume that the heating element is ok.

I heard that a common way to solve this problem is to clean the bottom or back of the dryer, removing any lint build up.

I would like to try cleaning the bottom/back of the dryer but I do not know how to disassemble it and access the areas in need of cleaning.

Can someone help guide me through the necessary steps to access the bottom of the dryer.

Thank You.

you already cleaned the exhaust pipe right?

1 take out the lint filter and remove those 2 screws.

2 the top swings up after you release 2 clips with a putty knife from the front.

then undo the connector for the door switch.

then 2 screws and the front panel top swings toward you and lifts up and off.

undo the belt from the motor and the drum will lift right out.

The MOST important thing needing cleaning is the venting *all the way from the dryer to the outdoors*.

- How long can my dryer vent be?
