No heat

Unplug the unit. Tip the machine to the rear, and put a block under the front to gain access the bottom of the front panel. the Remove the 2 screws on the lower front panel, and remove the panel. Remove the 2 screws holding the door assembly. This assembly has clips that hold it on top, so pull out on the bottom, and pull down. Be sure to mark the wires on the door switch. Remove plastic blower box assembly. This is fastened from inside the drum with 3 phillips screws. The heating element and thermal fuse are located in the left rear corner of the machine. Remove 2 screws holding assembly, and pull it out to the front of the machine...the wires are long enough to allow this. The thermal fuse is screwed right to the element. Just lay the elements side by side, and transfer the wires from 1 to the other. Put everything back together in reverse order. My dryer now works like new. This is an easy job for an average handyman.

The drying quite heating.

Took the dryer apart and tested the parts with multimeter. Saw that fuse was out. Ordered two fuses and heating element although only one fuse was bad. Just to help the dryer last longer replaced another fuse and heat element. Parts select had the parts their within two days and it was a holiday weekend. We were amazed. Thanks

Dryer turns off after about 20 min gets too hot

I removed the two screws that hold the element in place. I then pulled the element out about 6 inches and disconnected the two wire. Then I had to remove and replace the thermal fuse and thermo kit from one element to the other.

Would have to run clothes through 2 cycles or more to get all the way dry.

I removed the 2 screws on the front panel and the front panel. Located the heat element and removed 2 screw, pulled the health element out with connected wiring. Disconnected the wiring. Reconnected to new element and reversed assembly. Hard part was reaching from the front of the dryer to the back of the dryer to get to the heat element.. had to be laying down on the floor to reach it.
