This 240 volt heating element is used for electric clothes dryers. Included with this element is a fuse kit consisting of a thermal fuse, a high limit thermostat, two wire leads, and four mounting screws.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Meant as a backup to a high limit thermostat, this fuse is typically set to trip at a higher temperature than that of a high limit thermostat. This is a one-time use fuse, so when it does trip, you do need to replace it. It's letting you know that something is wrong with your dryer.
This hi-limit thermostat acts as a safety mechanism that keeps the dryer from overheating. With this thermostat, a dryer's heating element will cut out if the internal temperature reaches 225 degrees Fahrenheit. The element will kick back in when the temperature drops to 185 degrees Fahrenheit - the differential of 40 degrees.
Disconnected dryer from vent and power receptacle, placed dryer on its back and remove the front panel by removing screws along the bottom of the panel and pulling down on the panel. Below the drum the element mounting plate was visible so I removed the sensor and element wires, removed the element mounting screws and pulled the element down and out of its "duct". I installed the new element and replaced the wires and front panel. That's all folks!

Removed 2 screws on the bottom of front panel of dryer & pulled it off. Next I got down & looked to the back & bottom inside of the dryer. I spyed the heating element,I pulled off the two wires from the thermostats[ orange & black. I removed two screws from the heating element plate & dropped it down & removed it from the dryer. Reverse procedure to reinstall. Will see if we can get another 10 years service out of it.
once I found where the heat element was, it took me a few mintues to remove the bad one and replace it with the new one that came before the due date. very good instruction in kit. Be sure and leave the old one hooked up until the new unit comes in so you can do a easy exchange of the wiring.
removed old element, relaced with new element , thermostat dryer works better than it has in along time
