Read the instructions followed by the video offered on Part Select. As the video indicated I began by opening the back of the dryer. Unfortunately because the video only offered direction using a older model I found that it was necessary to go through the front to get access to the thermal fuse and heater element.Once I had gained acess through the front (easy) everything went exactly as the video indicated. Although I replaced both the thermal fuse and the heater element the actual problem turned out to be the heater element. Part Select was a great resource in this repair and I am sure saved me considerable money not having to have appliance repair person come to my home. Very Pleased.

Wasn't sure whether it was Thermostat or HEater Element - so bought both.Accessed all through the front panel on lower front of dryer using a flat tip screw driver to depress spring loaded locks. Removed and labeled wires from HE and Thermstats - wires were connected using the standard flat slide on clips. Removed unit with therms and HE connected to it (couple of screws attaching it to the bottom of dryer).Cleaned out all lint in the bottom of the dryer. Replaced the parts (noting the placement and location/order of element, then reversed the disassembly order to place the dryer back into operation. Prior to re-connecting the dryer to the outside vent - tried a test of the dryer to ensure hot air would be pushed out through vent by running the dryer for about three minutes.Everything worked smoothly - my 15 year old son actually did all of the work while I supervised :)
after calling several repair shops and being told that it would take a week for someone to respond I decided to get on the internet and see how difficult the task would be. I assumed that a heating element needed to be replaced, however I was very concerned that being it was the front load type.your site was easy to follow, I ordered the parts and had them shipped overnight.My wife was back to doing her laundry without skipping a beat. I highly reccomend your company.Thanks Larry wpb fl.
Removed toe plate, make sure and use something like a 5 in 1 painters tool, makes the job easier as you will see a notch inside the seam between toe plate and outer shell, take 1 screw from heater tube cover I used a nut driver, this job is best to use with a stubby socket set, there are 2 machine screws with hex heads holding the heating element to the heating tube, you cant really see the heads but can feel them with your fingers, disconnect the 2 terminals in front of this, but make sure you use a blue or black sharpie to mark the terminals, use your stubby and remove screws, then use a set of needle nose pliers and pull out the heating element, the new heating element slide right in the grooves then reverse the take off process, good luck
I opened up the bottom of the cabinet and found some evidence of burned lint in the heater box. I ohmed out the thermostats and they were good. Then I ohmed out the heater coil and found that it was an open circuit.
We removed front cover, then removed the part in front of the element. Removed old element after taking out screw that held it in. Then placed new element in.
As per directions (videos) I found on PartSelect; 1st removed the bottom panel, then removed the housing (2 screws) covering the fan/lint trap area. Pulled the wires (2) from the heating element and removed three screws, 1 on the side of the housing immediately behind the heating element terminals, and 2 screws holding the stamped steel riser in place. I didn't have to remove the entire heater housing, but rather wiggled the heating element out slowly. For that I used a pair of pliers to grip the element and a gloved hand to hold the housing steady while I pulled one side then the other. I spent some time vacuuming out all the dust while I was in there. Replacing the element was a little easier, it slid in with firm hand pressure. Then just a matter of reversing the steps above. Wife was happy and once again, I am a hero.
i removed the heater element and put a new one in.
Removed the front bottom panel. Disconnect the two wires and two screws and then remove the heater element using pliers. Then install the new heater element in the same way.It works good as new now! Thanks to PartSelect.
Disconnected dryer from power source. Removed bottom panel on dryer. Removed three screws. Disconnected two wires on heating element. Pulled heating element out. Attached new heating element. Success!
Opened the bottom section removed the heater element replaced it and boom!! It works!!!!!
I ordered the Part on Wednesday night, it arrived on Saturday, and was installed by Monday by my husband. This was the best service I have seen in a good while. Kudos to you!
Remove two screws holding front panel of dryer. Heating element is on right side, in a protective tube. Remove the six wires connected to the tube, noting their placement. Remove two screws from front metal bracket holding in the tube. Pull tube out. One screw is holding the heating element in the tube, so remove that and you can replace the element. Then reverse to put it all back together. Clean out all of the lint inside the dryer.
Being from the old school where we never assume to know what the problem was, so took out the heating element to inspect which I found that the element had a broken coil which confermed my suspicions. I ordered a new element on Saturday from paRts select on Saturday and recieved it on Wednesday Ann the rest was a matter of reassembling which was a breeze since I foot plenty of pictures.
First, we unclogged the blocked duct (which, is apparently what burned up the heating unit in the first place!), then, we took off the front of the dryer panel; then we loosened up the heating unit's case and took out the existing heating unit. It was apparent why it wasn't working. You'll have to see yours for yourself. Then, we installed the new unit, put the heat shield back on, closed up the dryer and turned it on. No heat... oops because we forgot to put the electricity to the unit... so we took the panel back off, then plugged the wires up to the heating unit, as we should have the first time, closed up the panel, and voila! The dryer was working again, and for a major fraction of the cost of replacing the thing! 45 dollars instead of 800. Well worth the time! And the 14 year old did the repair. Explains the first plug in mishap, but also taught him a good skill!!!
