The heating element is strung with a coiled wire that is made out of a nickel and chrome alloy. The function of the coiled wire on the heating element is to receive and resist a controlled electric current, which as a result will allow the wire to heat up. The heat produced by this is used to dry the clothes in your dryer. In order to make this repair you will need a 1/4 inch nut driver and a pair of needle nose pliers. Before starting your installation, disconnect the power supply to your dryer in order to ensure a safe repair.

No heat output

Checked components that could be the problem as shown in the trouble shooting video, such as the fuse or thermal overloads. All of these checks are done with the multi-meter in the resistance (ohm) mode. All checks were good until the heating element check showed no continuity. Removed the heating element and could visibly see the break in the coil. Ordered the heating element. Installed it. The dryer works fine now producing heat as it should. THESE CHECKS ARE DONE WITH ELECTRICAL POWER TURNED OFF, UNPLUGGED, DISCONNECTED. FOLLOW INSTRUCTION VIDEO. Thankyou

The dryer just stopped heating up but would run with no heat.

Pulled the dryer out unplugged it took the back off the dryer located both parts followed the videos and it was very easy to take the parts off and replace them. Once I got them hooked back up I tried the dryer and it was heating and working like new again.

Dryer was not heating

Followed the instructions on the video. I unplugged the dryer and pulled it from the wall, I unscrewed the back of the dryer to look for the element that needed to be replaced. Because my dryer is a little older the wire were a little rusty and hard to remove. After removing the the old element I added the new one. Screwed the back back on and did several test runs and sure enough it was working like new again.

Dryer wouldn't produce heat

Thank goodness for the video!!! Really helped. Removed screws from back, loosened wires and screws on old element. Toughest part was getting thermostat off of old element. Video mentioned screws, my unit was attached via a metal tab. Took some figuring to get it apart and not damage thermostat. Getting new unit into venting was tight fit - had to fit juuuuuusst right. Re-attach screws, plug it in to test - hot air. Reassembly no problem. I am not a real handy guy so for me to say this was easy means it was really easy.

Taking a long time to dry clothes

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.

Replacing dryer heating element

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!
