Title: 11067862600 Need help with Right Door Hinge replacement
Post by: rockinrobin on March 21, 2016, 08:44:19 PM
This customer's kid sat on the Drop Down Dryer Door and bent the Right Door Hinge (p/n 3387560) so it's hard to close and won't stay closed.
Therefore, I need instructions (or Service Manual) on how to replace it since I don't think the part will come with instruction's.
 :thanks:

If just the hinge is bent it is a straightforward replacement job. Unfortunately  quite often the bent part is in the front panel also. If that is the case you may not be able to correct the problem unless you replace the entire front panel.

To replace the door hinge do I need to remove front panel or just remove the single screw from door on each side then remove door to replace hinge then reassemble the door?

I usually remove the front panel to fix things like that but I am kind of clumsy and usually drop a screw down inside the panel. You may be better at that and could possibly do it w/o removing the front panel.
