Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Justanswer. Thank you for your question and I will assist you with your concern.

The expansion valve is not to bad to change , you will need to evacuate your system so it empty and then remove the blower motor for access and once its out of the way the expansion valve will come right out. Would you like the removal steps?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I would. How about the Dryer?
Expert:  Ron replied 1 year ago.

See the expansion valve replacement steps in the links below.

To replace the dryer you are going to need to remove the condenser which involves removing the grill. Do you need these steps as well?

Those aren't very good instructions.

Okay there directly from the factory and I have nothing else. I will open the post back up for you if you would like.

I have not been paid anything and I only get paid if you rate the service. Any money you have placed in your account remains in your account. If you want a refund then you will need to contact customer service.
