I took the back off 1st put the element and thermostats in... 2nd I took the front off the dryer and replaced the belt.....3rd I blew out all the lint and dust and then put it back together it was a cake walk...I want to add that the parts arrived extremely "FAST" and "ACCURATE"... which made the job that much easier.....
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... ;)
Bought part for my mother-in-law because her dryer was not getting hot. So I ordered the part from you guys. Waited for three days for husband to install. Gave up on plan A. Got out the nutdriver. Unplug dryer. Removed back from driver. noted what wires went where. Unhooked element. Installed new element. Took time to clean up the interior a bit. Put the back of dryer back into place. Swept behind dryer. Plugged in dryer. Dried a load of clothes.
Hardest part of this repair was getting the dryer out from the wall to gain access to the back panel. After removing 8-10 sheet metal screws from the pack panel, two more screws held the Heating Element in place. I removed the two heavy gauge wires from the elements side and simply reversed the order to install the new unit. Maybe a half hour from start to finish and we had a working Dryer again.
I had to remove a total of 11 screws in order to access the heating element. They all had the exact same screw head size, so I only needed a single socket for my nutdriver. That was nice! There were three terminals that had to be disconnected in order to completely remove the heating element from the dryer. I disassembled one of the thermostats from the burnt out heating element's sheetmetal frame and re-assembled it to the new heating element, then re-assembled the heating element to the dryer. While I had the back panel removed from the dryer, I replaced the light bulb and the thermal fuse as well. From there I buttoned it all back up and it works as good as new. Overall, this was an EXTREMELY EASY do-it-yourself task!
Hardest part was pulling the unit out, took a total of 8 mins to replace coil and everything back in place very easy! I cheated an used my drill with a socket attachment cut time down alot!
remove back cover locate the heating element remove the wiring replace the element
Well.....my.wife noticed that the dryer would function as normal with the exception if heating. i token off the rear panel and removed the heating element to check it out when i discovered that it was cracked and damaged. I found this website in looking for the part and placed the order, i received the part two days later and installed it. Reattached the back panel and started the unit up...works like a charm . Very pleased with the time it took to receive the part. Very easy to install...just a matter of plug abduction play
if you follow the video instructions - you can't fail - the whole process went like clockwork - great help -
Troubleshot for operation & rotation heat inop. Removed rear cover, shot pics of wiring so, no chance of miswire. Removed lower portion (2 screws) of heater assy which contained the element. Removed a sensor & installed it on the new a element assy replaced failed element ( saw broken element open circuit ) with new one re-connected wiring. Good to go.
I replaced the parts as recommended by the website.
The repair was easy and the directions were easy to follow as well. It saved me $250 to repair it myself! I did have to order the thermo cut off kit as well b/c the thermo cut off usually goes when the element goes too. The shipping was very fast less than 24 hrs. for min. shipping charge.I have this site booked marked!
Under "Symptoms" we clicked on "Timer does not advance and no heat". We replaced one at a time the Thermal Fuse, the Cycling Thermostat and the Timer -- still no heat and timer only advanced on timed dry setting. An electrician confirmed our breakers were fine. When we replaced the heating element, the dryer worked fine and the timer advanced properly. We followed the instructional videos which were very helpful in replacing the parts using a nutdriver and screwdriver. The new heating element was needed and probably the Timer.
I checked out the youtube videos on this repair...take the back cover off using nut driver, pull out the old coil, and replace. Easy as pie! Works like a charm now.
