This element is strung with a coiled wire made of a nickel and a chrome alloy. This wire receives, but resists, a controlled electric current and as a result, the wire heats up. The heat produced is used to dry the clothes in your dryer.
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:
Bought the heater element and was fortunate to see a video of "how to" replace. Was quite straight forward really. Just needed a 1/4 inch socket...with preferably an extension to take off the back of the dryer. the only thing that was a little different in real life from the video was taking off the thermostat from the heater element. I used a screwdriver to bend the metal fork back so I could remove it. Other than that, I was done in 40 minutes.

I replaced the Thermostat, heating element and thermal fuse. Took 30 minutes and dryer is working fine
Just as the video described followed the instructions and it worked.
The replacement was SUPER easy, and way cheaper than a new dryer. Many people will buy a new dryer rather than mess with the hassle of a part. The biggest hassle of this part was the size confinement of the space. Other than that, I feel like I have a brand new dryer!
pull the plug, rem the back cover 6 screws, rem two screws in heater element attached three wires with one sensor replace cover. Very simple fix.. Although not recommended if you have the dryer on with cover removed you can easily test voltage going to the element and it will not come on. Makes it certain the element has failed. You do have to be very careful to not touch anything electrical this way or you will get shocked.
First I ordered and installed all the thermostats to see if that fixed the problem. Helped a little, but clothes needed to go through two cycles. It had to go through three previously. I then ordered the Heating Element and installed it in abut 20 minutes. The videos that were provided on the installation of the parts proved to be invaluable. For less than $100 in parts I saved over $550 on the purchase of a new dryer. Dryer now drys clothes in one cycle. Thank you
Replaced the heating element after testing it for continuity, seeing one of the coils were broke. Put new element in, still no heat, checked all other items for continuity, everything was fine.. found a video on YouTube stating a dryer needs 240volts to run correctly. Checked the fuses and found out I have lost a leg, replaced bad fuse, dryer is working great now..
Followed the video your company has.
The part arrived in less than 5 days. Unplugged power cord and disconnected the vent line. Removed about 8 hex head screws from the back panel on dryer. Took pictures of everything to reference if I forgot how I took it apart. Used needle nose pliers to remove two wires connected to heating element. Removed 4 screws holding heating element in place. Pull down on heating element to slide off mount. Slide new heating element into place, connected wires, secured it in place with the screws. Vacuumed all the lent in and around the dryer. Before replacing back panel I tested dryer to make sure that it worked and no danger of fire. Replaced the back panel and dried two loads of clothes while I was home to make sure it worked. I did this while my husband was watching football and never knew what I was doing. Saved about $150 bucks and avoided taking time off from work to wait for service man.
Took my VOM and did a continuity test on the heating coil and thermos switch. Heating coil was open
I followed the very easy, well defined instructions on your web site--Best repair instructions I have ever seen.FrankR
I took the back off 1st put the element and thermostats in... 2nd I took the front off the dryer and replaced the belt.....3rd I blew out all the lint and dust and then put it back together it was a cake walk...I want to add that the parts arrived extremely "FAST" and "ACCURATE"... which made the job that much easier.....
I unplugged the dryer and took the back off the appliance. I looked online to see what the problem probably was. I saw a diagram of where the heating element was. It had two small screws holding the element on. I removed them and detached three wires from the side of it being careful to write down what wire went where.The part select repair site popped up on an internet search so I ordered the heating element, and the fuse and thermostat and another piece. Some of the wires were loose at other places so I reattached them and tightened them. I think the only part the dryer actually needed was the piece about a foot up from the heating element.It was in the thermal cut off kit that I ordered. After replacing the other three parts, I replaced that and the heat came on. Eureka! I love my cordless screwdriver. It made taking the screws out and reinstalling them a breeze. I did notice on this dryer that it says to only use a metal vent, not foil or plastic as they can be a fire hazard. I bought the dryer for forty dollars on craigslist and have spent about a hundred and fifteen dollars fixing it up including a new dryer belt and door latch. I am looking foward to repairing something else. From a 50 year old lady. It was easier than making biscuits.
The toughest part of the job was due to the fact that I was working in a small 1st floor laundry room. I had to pull the dryer out from the wall in order to get to the rear and squeeze between it and the washer to get behind it. I could not pull it out all the way because the 220 cord is only so long and the vent comes out also. After that, I unplugged the power cable, removed the vent, removed the back with my nut driver, disconnected a couple connectors, removed the existing heat element with my nut driver. Then I installed the new heating element and continued with doing all of the above in reverse. My wife is happy! Best of luck to all....Jerry
