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.
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:
All I needed to do was remove the back panel and the element was clearly visable. I disconnected the wires keeping track of where they were connected, slid the element out of the long metal casing, then inserted the new element and re-connected the wires. That's it! Keep in mind that the dryer was disconnected for safety.

Unplugged. I took 6 screws off back and cover came off. 2 screws on unit and it fell loose. 2 screws on thermostat taken off and unit was free, I took the extra 5 mins to vacumn off the 10 pounds of lint & dust out of the back of the dryer. Clipped the 2 wires on to the unit, replaced thermostat and put the unit in place with the 2 screws. Put the back on the dryer, replaced the 6 screws, plugged in and ready to roll. Tested with wet towel, works like new now!
Removed the back panel, took out two screws and replaced the element. Turned out the element was fine, the sensors were bad. Replaced them. Works like knew. I had the parts with in two days of ordering.
unplug 220 volt plug,,,remove back cover of dryer (8 screws) then remove heating element, two screws to remove the element, disconnect three wires , remove thermal sensor from old element and install on new element, replace, tighten two screws, reconnect three wires, and reinstall back cover of dryer eight screws plug in 220 volt plug, done....( did have to reconnect the vent)
Made sure the Dryer was unplugged. Removed the screws from the back of the Dryer. Removed the screws that held the heating element in place. (mine was located on the bottom right side)Disconnected the the wires leading to the heating element. The connectors holding the wires in place were very snug, I had to use needle nose pliers to remove them. Then I just simply reversed the process. The edges are very sharp also.
I removed the old element then I removed the three wires and I had to remove the sensor from the old element which was not located on the new element. So do not be so quick to throw away your old element, due to it not being on the new one. Over all the installation took no more than 20 minutes. Thanks PartSelect.Sincerely,Eric Morrow
Remove the plug from the wall outlet. Leaned the dryer over on its front. Removed the back panel screws and back panel. Disconnected the wires from the side of the heating element and removed the 2 screws holding the metal housing and pulled the heater housing away from the main housing. Removed the electrical component for use on the new element. Installed the component on the new housing and attached the housing to the main housing. Reconnected the wires, attached the back panel with screws. Set the dryer upright and plugged in the dryer cord into the wall outlet, turned on the dryer and the heat started flowing.
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.
removed back of dryer, disconnected old element then installed new element - piece of cake - biggist pain was connecting vent hose due to no room to maneauver --
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!
before you start if you have a ohm meter to make sure your old one is bad. the video made it so easy! we had heating elements go out before but always called a repair man and paid 90.00 just for the service call beings he came from a different town so had no idea easy it was till I came across this web site! I actually pretty much figured what we needed cause like I said we have had them go out before. called and talked to the associate and he was so helpful! got the part showed my husband the video, he took the back off unscrewed the element pulled out the wires and got knob on it out too. which it didn't say in the video to keep but luckily I had read under the video to keep the old one cause you'd need a part which we did. then he just slid the new one in and put the knob on put the wire in ,screwed it on put the back on and done! like I said my husband did it but I honestly know I could of done it by the video!! it's that easy!
Pulled off back panel, unplugged old and removed nut holding old heating coil. Slid off and replaced with new one . Plugged in wires and replaced panel. Easy.
