Are you scratching your head trying to figure out how to open up a Whrilpool Cabrio dryer cabinet? I did too until I got a hold of the service manual. The Whirlpool Cabrio has some similarities as the Maytag Neptune dryer, but if you know how to open up the older Whirlpool dryers, after finding the top locks, you can open up the Cabrio.
To open up the cabinet, first remove the two Philips head screws where the lint screen goes into the dryer.
If you need to take the drum out, there’s a panel that holds it into place similar to the Maytag Neptune design. Unscrew the four screws and then remove the belt from the idler pulley. (Sorry, no pictures.)
The back panel is pretty straight forward, just unscrew the 1/4″ hex head screws that hold it on.
Those of you who have seen the back of a Whirlpool dryer know that it is very similar to the old design.
There you go.
