When you say lower front panel, you do mean the piece under the round door? I'm seeing two metal screws (hexagonal, not flat or phillips head), one on each side; and I can't see how to get leverage on them. The dryer is on a drawer pedestal - does that make any difference?
I finally found a nut driver & 1/4" socket; got the front panel off. The only piece of white plastic I see has black, green, & yellow wires sticking out of it; I assume the black semi-triangle thing in front is the blower housing? I guess the good news is that there isn't a belt on the floor.
It looks like I need to remove parts 62 through 44 to get to it; How do you get the plastic fan blade (37?) off? And am I going to have to do anything with the wires?
There's a flat white plastic piece held on with a metal screw & has two blue wires attached - but they look pretty firmly fixed. Am I looking in the right area? Also, the multitester i have doesn't measure continuity, so I guess I need to go buy one, but if I can identify the fuse, I could just buy both at the same time....
1) Do you have a larger picture of the fuse? The wires are on REALLY tight & I absolutely don't want to break them.
2) When I do finally get the wires off, is it important to remember which wire was attached to which terminal?
I got the wires off & taped them with electrical tape - I'm sure the metal strips were touching; plugged in the dryer & got the same beep & no go, so I guess it's the relay control board.
Can you tell me roughly what they cost? I'll have to get a pro to come do that part - I've already done about as much as I dare.
Thank you for all your help - and $230 plus the technician's time is still cheaper than buying a whole new dryer! I'm really glad I found the site. I will send the "excellent" rating as soon as I send this. I hope you enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
