Whirlpool gas dryer mod LGR7647


I want to know how to get into the cabinet. It looks like I have to take off the panel in the back. This dryer is about 11 years old. Does anyone know where I can download the manual. I've tried several sites without success. All the manuals I've seen so far cover several models.

the back will come off, back there you have access to the heating element and thermostats, if you want anything else you have to take off the front. open the lint filter cover and remove those 2 screws you see, take a putty knife and find 2 releases tabs in the front of the top panel, lift top, look down into the dryer and locate 2 screws that hold the front panel on, remove them and then you can lift the front panel off. you now have access to everything

Just repaired mine. Hardwareman, you are too hard on yourself. Going through the back was actually right on the money. I laid the dryer on its side and thus avoided disconnecting the gas,(although I still shut it off) It came off easily. In checking the continuity of the three electrical sensors, I found that the thermal fuse was the problem. Replaced it ($12 plus shipping) and everything worked fine.
