Question and Answers


how to install door cable #230131 and does it also need springs as my old model has neither 11076974150 Kenmore Electric dryer


Thank you for choosing SearsPartsDirect. I will be more than happy to assist you with your dryer.  From the information you have provided above, after researching model number 110.76974150. I have located some instructions for you to help with the repair below.

1. Remove the lint filter. Then remove 2 screws at the lint filter housing.
2. At the back of the dryer, remove 2 screws that restrain the hinges for the dryer top. Do NOT remove the hinges.

3. Remove the front lower access panel. It snaps at the top and hinges at the bottom. It can be slipped off the hinges.
4. Remove 2 screws at the bottom of the main front panel
5. The front of the dryer top is held in place by two plastic clips. Use a flat blade screwdriver (with a rag wrapped around the tip to minimize paint damage) to pry the top up at each front corner. Then tilt the top up to just past vertical. You now can see the top of the spring that is connected to the door cable.
6. Open the dryer door. Use a putty knife to pry up the plastic plug that holds the cable in place at the door. Remove the old cable from the door and insert the new one. Be sure the cable end without a hole goes into the dryer door. Replace the plastic plug.
7. Feed the new cable through the main front panel and close the door.
8. Loosen but do NOT remove two screws that hold the main front panel to each side panel. Tilt the bottom of the front panel out about 2 inches.
9. Working through the gap between the main front panel and the side, hook the spring into the hole in the cable end.
10. Working through the open top and the gap on the side, move the spring+cable up to the top. Pass the upper end of the spring through the rectangular hole in the top of the main front panel and hook the end into the small hole there.
11. Repeat for other cable as needed.
12. Reassemble all parts. You may need to hold the top of the drum up as you move the main front panel back into place. Install the main front panel lower screws before tightening the upper screws.

I hope you found this information useful. Again thank you for choosing Sears, we appreciate your business, have a great day.

Clothes Dryer Model:76974150 Serial: F03603875. I need a manual or explanation of how to get access to the cables that hold the door when it is open.


I understand how important it is to install the cables on your dryer door properly so that the door will not be hanging loose. While you are waiting for an expert answer, I did manage to find two links that should provide you with the proper instructions to make your project much easier. I hope my links are useful.

Hi Tommy,

Thank you for submitting a question to Manage My Life. I know how frustrating it can be when appliances do not function properly.

The model number you gave is incomplete, I am assuming you have a 110.76974150. Here is a video that will demonstrate how to remove the front of a similar dryer; Video . Always unplug or de-energize electrical equipment before removing covers or attempting service. Be careful and wear appropriate hand protection when working around sharp metal parts. This video is for demonstration purposes only. This dryer may not look exactly like yours, but the procedure is basically the same.

If you do not feel confident repairing this problem yourself, then you can have it repaired at your home by a Sears technician. Here is a link for the website: Sears Home Services .

Here is a link that you may use to view the parts list diagram and for parts purchases; Sears Parts Direct .

I hope this is helpful. If I may be of further assistance as more details become available, please reply to this post.

Thanks again for using Manage My Life.
