The Kenmore Spacesaver Model 417.94812301 is a terrible design.

Resolved Question:

The Kenmore Spacesaver Model 417.94812301 is a terrible design. We struggled for almost one hour to accomplish what should be a simple task: replacing a burned out light bulb in the dryer. Does anyone have a secret method or instrument that makes this easier? Unless there is a huge improvement in design, I will NEVER buy this brand again.

We think my husband figured it out--finally--but I still think it's a very user-unfriendly design. Does the entire assembly, including the gray plastic insert, come out? That would make it easier.

I dont believe so just the cover. this is very user unfriendly, allot of dryers have the lights in the back of drum so you can see them and get at them, well wishes, thanks Bryan
