Heating went out

Troubleshot for operation & rotation heat inop. Removed rear cover, shot pics of wiring so, no chance of miswire. Removed lower portion (2 screws) of heater assy which contained the element. Removed a sensor & installed it on the new a element assy replaced failed element ( saw broken element open circuit ) with new one re-connected wiring. Good to go.

Dryer not heating

The repair was easy and the directions were easy to follow as well. It saved me $250 to repair it myself! I did have to order the thermo cut off kit as well b/c the thermo cut off usually goes when the element goes too. The shipping was very fast less than 24 hrs. for min. shipping charge.I have this site booked marked!

No heat in dryer and timer not advancing

Under "Symptoms" we clicked on "Timer does not advance and no heat". We replaced one at a time the Thermal Fuse, the Cycling Thermostat and the Timer -- still no heat and timer only advanced on timed dry setting. An electrician confirmed our breakers were fine. When we replaced the heating element, the dryer worked fine and the timer advanced properly. We followed the instructional videos which were very helpful in replacing the parts using a nutdriver and screwdriver. The new heating element was needed and probably the Timer.

Dryer did not produce heat

I checked out the youtube videos on this repair...take the back cover off using nut driver, pull out the old coil, and replace. Easy as pie! Works like a charm now.
