A:

Thank You for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com and being a valued member. It is unfortunate to hear that you are having issues with your dryer and I do understand your frustration. Glad to help out. I'm looking at your model number 41782042100 and from your description I would suspect the drum glides item 20 and 21 may need replacing. I have included some links that may help with additional troubleshooting. If the drum glides are not damaged then you may want to check the condition of the drum support items 12,13 and 32. Just click the blue link above to be taken to the page. I trust this information will help you.

 

Thank you for choosing Sears PartsDirect.com.

Thanks for the start, but this does noty help me. This post is for another dryer model and the imiages inside it aren't even for a dryer, they are for a washer. I was able to verify the outlet is registering 240 volts as is the dryer itself when plugged in. I was also able to remove the top pane and now have access to several components but don't know where to start. None of the images in any post i have found or been directed to are actually for MY dryer. They are for other dryers. Can someone plese give me some help on my actual dryer model #417.82042100. Is is an electric model, not gas. Thanks.

I provided a wiring diagram for your dryer in the image below. The start circuit through the dryer motor is traced in red. The normal circuit through the buzzer is traced in green. There is also a timer contact chart shown below the wiring diagram. The buzzer should only go off at the end of the cycle. The note at the bottom left of the second image indicates that there is a pulsar cam that should allow the buzzer to only go off for about 5 seconds at a time at the end of the cycle when it is operating properly. Based on your details, you likely have a bad timer.

Replacing that component may fix your problem as long as you do not have another component failure in the dryer at the same time.

You can order parts from the Sears PartsDirect website. The part number for the timer is 131965900.

Be sure that you unplug the dryer before accessing internal components.

I hope that this information helps. If you need further assistance, reply with additional details and we will try to help you further.

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 .

Q:

How do I remove the front panel on my electric dryer?

A:

First unplug or disconnect power to the unit.

  • Use a putty knife to release clips holding the top down. The clips are located 3-4 inches from each side in the gap between the top and front panel (they are on the top of Key 17 in the image below).
  • Lift the top up & remove it completely.
  • Open the dryer door and remove the lint screen.
  • Remove screws from the top of the front panel, one on each side located down about 3-4 inches on the inside of the cabinet.
  • The top of the front panel can now be separated.
  • Remove the door switch wiring.
  • Remove the front panel completely by lifting it off the of the lower clips.
