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:
The dryer was very old and was tempted to tossed it after it no longer drying clothes, but I googled to see if there was something that I can do on my own to fix it. I founs partselect.com and gave me the diagnosis and the parts that needed replacing. I ordered the the parts and in two days the fedex guy was at my door. The repair was quite easy. We followed the video on how to do it. If my husband did not clean out the vents, it would only have taken him 5 minutes to unistall the old one and install the new. There is a part of the heating element that does not come with the part. Do not throw the old one until you have removed that piece with a pliers. After everything was put back together again, the dryer works much better than from the first time we bought it.

Watched video to make sure I was doing the right thing. I had never repaired anything and this was a piece of cake.
Watched the video install instructions and followed instructions and installed the heating element. Still did not work but install was easy. So ordered the thermal fuse and installed and that didn't work. So ordered the thermal cut off kit, and the top thermal unit was installed and we had heat. All the installations were easy and did not take any time at all to do. Ordering and delivery were easy and speedy. If not for the holidays delivery would have been faster but am not complaining as each delivery arrived a lot sooner than I expected. Next time will order all the recommended parts at the same time instead of one at a time and wait and see method. The video install instructions were very helpful. Must mention I could have done the install myself the instructions were so easy (I'm 70) but my husband did the work so kudos to him.
Extremely easy! I used this website's part diagrams and videos to find out where the parts were in the dryer. I only needed a 1/4" socket on a screwdriver handle to remove the back of the dryer and the same socket for the screws holding most of the parts on (one needed a phillips screwdriver). I didnt have a ohm tester, so I ordered the heating element, cycling thermostat, thermal fuse and 250f Thermostat, knowing I could return the one(s) I didnt need. Replaced them all and guess what...it still didnt work! So I read some other people's comments and found out there was one more part I hadnt ordered that might be the problem...the THERMAL CUT OFF KIT. It has the 250F thermostat PLUS another (different) Thermal cut off fuse, that attaches several inches above the heating element. I ordered that part, got it the next day, and the Thermal cut off fuse that was in the kit (not available separately) ended up being the solution to my problem! The wire to it was actually fried, so the extra connectors in the kit were perfect, and I just cut and stripped the wire a little and put on the new connector, and the dryer works great.
Without being a handy man, I saved money by replacing the heating element of our dryer at home. When drying clothing it was not heating, went to partselect and found the proper replacement. It was reeally easy to replace.
Very simple to replace the heating element. Remove back panel, replace element, reinstall panel. By the way, The Part Select part price was 50% less than (where I originally purchased the dryer).
Parts arrived in 2 days. I followed the "Simple as Pie" on-line instructional video, and my dryer was repaired in under 30 minutes. Couldn't have been easier. I've already recommended your site to a couple of friends. Needless to say "I'll never call an appliance repairman again."
Replaced heating element and thermal fuse also replace one overheat senser and dryer operated normally
Took the back panel off the dryer by removing eight (8) screws. Had parts I order (heating element and thermal fuse) replaced old with the new, still no heat. I ordered a thermal cut off kit. From the kit I replaced the high limited thermostat and tested. Heat begin too blow. I dryed cloth and everything work great.
Folks, I have to compliment you on one of the best integrated and intuitive websites I have ever encountered and my compliments to Steve for a job well done on the DIY video presentation. Impressive and it answers the question, "Can I handle this job or do I call a repairman." Regarding the dryer heating element problem, after reviewing Steve's great video on element replacement, there was little doubt, that anyone with rudimentary familiarity with basic hand tools could handle the job and in the process, save $100 just by eliminating the repairman visit. After removing the back of the dryer, the heating element was removed and the problem was obvious, as a coil heating wire had parted opening the heating element circuit. The three parts I ordered, Heating Element, Thermal Cutoff, and High Limit Thermostat took less then one hour from start to finish and that included testing the dryer in all cycles. As I said before, great job, fast parts delivery and good prices, all complimented by a world class Website. Well-done folks. I'll be back when something else goes South on me here at home.
Took the back panel off and heating element was right there. 2 screws took to out. Had to remove a sensor from element and reuse. Just had to bend a tab that holds it in. Very easy replacement!!
The repair was really simple. I just removed the back cover of the dryer and found the heating element component. I removed the two wires with a pair of needle-nose pliers. Then I removed the screws that held the heating element component to the dryer and then removed it. To install the new part, I just put it in place, screwed it on and connected the two wires back. The final step was to put the back cover on. That was it. Very easy.
1. Removed the back of the dryer. This involved fitting a hex bit to my power drill and removing about 10 screws. Easy. Total time: 2 min.2. Removed the electrical connectors leading to the heating element (in the lower-right quadrant of the dryer, looking at it from the back). Used needle-nose pliers. Removed the heating element (more hex screws). 2min.3. Tested it with a multimeter. (Touch multimeter to each pole of the heating element simultaneously.) No response. This is how I knew it was bad.4. Remove thermostat from heating element with pliers, order part, wait for new part.5. Put thermostat on new heating element, screw it in, replace electrical connections, put the back on. Voila.
First, I removed the back of the dryer-8 to 10 screws. The heating element was located to the bottom right. I then removed 2 screws and pulled the heating element and casing, and unplugged the wires. I then connected the wires and reinstalled the heater element and put the back back on the dryer. Easy and it works like a charm.
removed the back panel. located the section for the heating element and unpluged the tow wiresand repalced the thermostat. it took only 15 to 20 minutes. and instead of buying one I saved a lot of money
