No heat from the dryer

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.

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!

No heat

My dryer did not heat my clothes. I replaced the heating element, three thermostats, and a fuse. The whole installation took less than 15 minutes and was very easy!

No heat problem

First off I was really impressed about the videos provided. They helped make the repairs with more confidence. I changed just about every part related to an heating problem before I hit the defective part. Part I changed were Heating Element - 5600W 240V, Cycling Thermostat, Thermal Fuse, High Limit Thermostat. After replacing all these parts, still no heat. I then read that the Thermal cutoff kit has an additional sensor that you can't get separately but as a part of a kit which forces me to purchase an item twice. After another week spent waiting for the second order to arrive, the part came and I was able to replace and regained heat fairly quickly. Yeah! I do have an ohm meter but the dryer is at a location that is very difficult to reach when plugged in so changing the parts one by one was the safest way to go. It is fixed now and we are all happy. My only complaint is that the thermal kit was not mentioned as a possible issue or else I would have ordered it on the same order. In any case this earned me major brownie point to my significant other double Yeah!!!

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.
