Clothes were not drying properly

I remved the back of dryer, and heating element. I used sop air and blew all residual lint from dryer, I then installed new element, and reinstalled back. I then put dryer back in the house using a new vent hose, I found duct that was pu during house assembly was split so I replaced it as well. Dryer works like it did when we first bout it.

Dryer would not generate hot air

I removed the back of the dryer with the socket set which included about 8-9 screws. I then removed the two wires going to the safety thermostat on the side of the heating element. I then used the socket set with an extension to remove the two screws (one on each side) of the heating element. You have to pull out the bottom first to get it out of the lip it sits in then pull down. Remove the thermostat by sliding off the terminal clamp then bending the metal mounting bracket so you can slide off the thermostat. Now do everything in reverse and you have a brand new heating element!

Thank you PartSelect I'll be using you again soon to get a new solenoid and spray arm for my dishwasher!

Dryer not drying clothes

It was very easy all you have is about 6 or 7 srews. The back comes off. Two more srews to take off the element. Then reverse to the process and your done that's it.

Dryer wasn't getting hot enough

I orderd the heating element on line from PartSelect.com. It arrived in two days. Once I unplugged the dryer and pulled it away from the wall I removed 8 screws with a nut driver. I cleaned all the lint and dust from the back of the dryer and then removed the old heating element by unscrewing the two screws on either side of the housing. When it came out i labeled the three wires and removed them from the old element. I also had to remove the thermosthadt that was on the old element and install it on the new one. I replaced the three wires and re-installed the new heating element into its housing and put the back of the dryer back on. I also installed a new dryer vent while I was at it. Total time about 20 minutes.
Thank you PartSelect for your promt delivery and also to everyone who writes in with their repair/replacement tips and stories. Now my old dryer runs like new and I saved a bundle!

The dryer would not heat up.

it would spin and blow, but it would not get hot. i changed the heating element, but that was not the problem. i changed the fuse, but that was not the problem. Apparently there is another fuse in line, and that was the problem.

Was taking twice as long to dry

After removing the back to the dryer the element was easly accesable. Two screws held the element in place and the wires. After changing the element I cleaned it out and put it back together. It took me about 20 minutes. Now the dryer works like it was new.

Dryer would run, but wasn't heating

I followed everyone's advice on this website! Unplugged it first! Removed the screws on the back panel, took the panel off. Then removed a couple of screws on the lower right part. Disconnected heating element, connected new heating element. Put the lower right part back w/2 screws. Put the panel back on with all screws. Plugged it in and Yahooo, it worked! Super Easy

Dryer blowing cold air

Unplugged the electrical connection. Pulled the dryer out of it's area for room to remove the back panel. Removed the back panel (hand nutdriver). Removed the wires from their posts off the heating element (pliers). Removed the heating element. Verified it was damaged (broken heating element wire). -- Tried to replace the Thermal Cut-Off kit... the same type was not the same on the old heating element. I would have had one extra wire unattached if I used the replacement. Moved the old Thermal Cut-off to the new heating element. Reversed the steps with the new heating element. Pushed the dryer back into position. Threw some wet clothes in, the dryer seems to dry faster than before. Happy Wife, Happy Life... ;)
