Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
Whirlpool manufactured this Kenmore product for SEARS .that is why the part comes up Whirlpool.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
So if we bought that part, what are the instructions to install and switch out the old one and are you sure this is the part we definitely need?
Expert:  Whrlp Master Tech replied 2 years ago.
That is very easy ,very simple.just Unplug the dryer from the wall outlet .tilt the dryer forward and remove the top small long console rear cover ,the control board is right in the console remove the wire harnesses off the old board one at a time install on the new board after all the wires are on the new board remove the old board should be one or two screws ,remove the old board from the dryer ,and mount the new board on the dryer ,replace rear console cover ,tilt dryer back down plug the dryer in and test the dryer.
