Drum would rotate no heat

Had to lift the top with a screw driver. Unplugged dryer. Removed 4 different wires from heating element. Unscrewed with socket wrench screws that are small becareful not to drop. Replaced with new heating element and there you go. I had to reset at my fuse box as well. I was overjoyed that I didn't have to go buy a new dryer so close to the Holidays!! Hopefully it will work for another 10 years. Thanks!!

Heating element

It took longer to gather the tools vs changing the part. I was unsure how to start. Once I got started it was very easy it took 5 minutes.

Dryer would not heat

Tilt dryer top. Inspect damaged part(s). In my case it was the high-limit thermostat; but since the dryer is old, I ordered the heating element kit. The thermostat is included. Disconnect wires from thermostat and remove. Disconnect wires from element and remove. Carefully install new element and reconnect wires. Same for thermostat. Dryer works fine. Also, delivery time was one day. Thank you Partselect.

CustomerDavid from Roswell GA

Dryer doesn't heat

I used a butter knife to push the spring clips that hold the top down, this was the hardest part of the repair. Once the top was open it took about 20 minutes to pull out the old part and replace with the new, including running the dryer on high for a few minutes to get rid of the new element smell. Always unplug before attempting any electrical work.

Heating element in dryer went out

Opened up the top of the dryer. Had to use the internet to find the broken part since the last time I replaced a heating element it was at the bottom. This one was at the top behind the drum. Disconnected three screws holding the old element in place and the wiring. Pulled the old element and put the new one in replacing the wiring and the screws.

Dryer won't heat

Contrary to instructions that I found on the web, the element is not accessed through the back. Pop the top of the dryer up and the element is visible in the top of the back . Pretty easy job.
