I have a Jenn-Air Ultra 22 Model Number JDE1000W. When replacing the power cord, I dropped some parts inside the dryer. I need to open up the dryer to get these parts out. I have searched this forum for instructions, but haven't found anything Jenn-Air specific. I think that Maytag may have made this dryer, due to the fact that Maytag has the same model #, but also haven't found anything. Could someone point me in the right direction on how to open the top, front or sides of the dryer, so I can get inside?

Any help is appreciated.

Yes, its basically identical to the Maytag/Admiral/Magic Chef Dryers.

In fact i own the Admiral Dryer, and I love it.

Make sure its unplugged first or turn off the breaker to it.

To open the dryer, you will need a putty knife to release the front top clips on each side, then the top will raise up, then you will need to unscrew the 2 5/16" screws that are located on the inside front cabinet on each side to remove the front panel assembly.

Jeff1 has a detailed section on this at his website:
