No heat

Couldn't figure out how to dismantle the dryer to get to the heater and housing assembly. Found it on your website others commenting about where to locate the 2 front screws.....after that it was easy as a piece of cake. We took it apart and installation done in 15mins. Now I hope my Maytag dryer will last another 30years....LOL

Maytag de512 dryer would't heat.

After 22 years of continued use, my Maytag dryer stopped heating. Needless to say that I'm very impressed with the quality of Maytag products and I haven't had any problems with this unit until now. Your website was very informative and it really helped me pinpoint my problem. The parts were easy to install and it took less then 1 hour to complete. First: disconnect the power cord and the vent hose and lay the dryer on its back. There are two screws on the bottom of the door frame, remove these and then tilt the door assembly up until you can unlock the spring clips which hold the top of the door assembly to the dryer frame. Disconnect the two wires that are attached to the door switch and remove the door. The heater element is located on the right side, it's tube shaped. Remove the two slip-on connector wires attached to the top of the heater element. There are 4 tiny screws (use nut driver) holding the heater assy. First, remove two screws that hold the metal flap on the front of the element tube, then remove the screw located inside the element near the front lip (use a short nut driver) and then one screw attached to a flange at the back-end of the element on the right side. Pull out the heater assy, and install the replacement. If you're replacing the short jumper wire located on the element so be sure to replace it before you install the new element. Bolt the new element to the dryer using the 4 tiny screws, connect the 2 wires to the heater assy, re-attach the door by first aligning the spring clips to the top of dryer assy, then re-connect the 2 wires to the door switch, lower the door assy and install the 2 screws at the bottom of the door frame. Re-connect the vent hose and power.

CustomerWilliam from Walden, NY

Dryer no longer produced heat, otherwise fine.

Removed front of dryer, heater element now exposed. Held in by 2 screws, had electrical wires attached with spade clips. Unhooked the wires, took the screws out, old element came out easily. Had to remove the high temperature reostat which is held on the side of the heating unit by 2 screws. Needed this for the new unit. Simply reversed the steps above to install the new unit, replaced the front panel and the dryer was ready. Took a bit over an hour total.
