no heat
Couldn't figure out how to dismantle the dryer to get to the heater and housing assembly. Found it on your website others commenting about where to locate the 2 front screws.....after that it was easy as a piece of cake. We took it apart and installation done in 15mins. Now I hope my Maytag dryer will last another 30years....LOL

Maytag DE512 dryer would't heat.
After 22 years of continued use, my Maytag dryer stopped heating. Needless to say that I'm very impressed with the quality of Maytag products and I haven't had any problems with this unit until now. Your website was very informative and it really helped me pinpoint my problem. The parts were easy to install and it took less then 1 hour to complete. First: disconnect the power cord and the vent hose and lay the dryer on its back. There are two screws on the bottom of the door frame, remove these and then tilt the door assembly up until you can unlock the spring clips which hold the top of the door assembly to the dryer frame. Disconnect the two wires that are attached to the door switch and remove the door. The heater element is located on the right side, it's tube shaped. Remove the two slip-on connector wires attached to the top of the heater element. There are 4 tiny screws (use nut driver) holding the heater assy. First, remove two screws that hold the metal flap on the front of the element tube, then remove the screw located inside the element near the front lip (use a short nut driver) and then one screw attached to a flange at the back-end of the element on the right side. Pull out the heater assy, and install the replacement. If you're replacing the short jumper wire located on the element so be sure to replace it before you install the new element. Bolt the new element to the dryer using the 4 tiny screws, connect the 2 wires to the heater assy, re-attach the door by first aligning the spring clips to the top of dryer assy, then re-connect the 2 wires to the door switch, lower the door assy and install the 2 screws at the bottom of the door frame. Re-connect the vent hose and power.

Dryer no longer produced heat, otherwise fine.
Removed front of dryer, heater element now exposed. Held in by 2 screws, had electrical wires attached with spade clips. Unhooked the wires, took the screws out, old element came out easily. Had to remove the high temperature reostat which is held on the side of the heating unit by 2 screws. Needed this for the new unit. Simply reversed the steps above to install the new unit, replaced the front panel and the dryer was ready. Took a bit over an hour total.

The timer stopped, but a repair man suggested it was the heating element
I removed the old element and replaced it. There were only two screw to deal with once I had the front panel off of the dryer. The electrical hookups were easy and the part I got fit exactly like the old part. I had to work at it a bit to get the back end to fit into the exhaust hose, but once that was taken care of this was one of the easiest appliance repairs ever. I agree with the repair man that first told me to fix it, these old machines are worth a few dollars to keep running. They work great!

Dryer will not heat
The 2 screws that hold the front cover to the dryer was hard to see because they are facing down.
After the 2 front screws were removed from the dryer, the heater was easily accessed. All I had to do was to remove the old heater assembly and transfer the limit sensor and wire on the assembly. The hardest part to the repair was fitting the rear end of the heater assembly to the back duct. I just bent the edges to conform to the rear duct where they mate together. Once I got the heater to line up, the rest was easy. Remember to use a shop vac to clean up the inside of the dryer since you have it all opened up. You'll be amazed at what you will find!
My dryer was up and running in no time and my wife was happy and so was I that we didn't have to buy a new dryer!!!

One day the Dryer quit drying.
I began by unplugging the dryer cord to cut any power to the appliance. I removed the front two screws that hold the front cover on and removed the front cover. I began by cleaning the lint and dust out of the dryer. After getting a look at it, I Googled Maytag to get an idea of possibilities of the problem. I took out the 4 screws that held the heating element into the dryer, and unhooked two wirers,( making sure there was no electrical source). I pulled the heating element out and immediately saw that the element wire was broken. I called Partselect and the person on the other end of the line was extremely knowledeable and willing to help. I was given the option of ordering the heating wire and stringinging it in the original housing or I could order the comlpete heating unit for a little more which woold save me from the extra work of installing it and also insure that the insulators that the wires went through were all new and I would not have to inspect each one and possibly have the same problem later if I missed a bad one and the heating element would short out and I would be back where I was now. I felt good that in hard economic times I could get my appliance up and running without calling the repairman @ 100dollars an hour. There was a fantastic sense of accomplishment that I fixed it myself! I could brag about that. Before I would throw the appliance away and get another used one. I had already shopped the local papers and craigs list but did not need to leave the house for it and arrange hauling because the parts were sent to my house and I was able to repair it myself. It was really a rewarding experiance and turned out fantastic! Parselect was a pleasure to deal with.

Replacing the heating unit
I removed the front 2 screws witha phillips shorty due to there proximity to the floor. I removed the heater plate the wiring and the heating element in about 10 minutes, the only issue I had was sue to the fact that the heater is 2 pieces and not totally cylindrical it was kind of a pain to get it back into the hole on the back side, I ended up having to form it better into a circle so that I could get it in. After that the rest putting it back together was no big deal. The unit now works great.

Dryer worked but did not heat.
Using a "Fix it Yourself book" and following a simple test method (measuring ohms) to determine if heating element or if it could be a heat sensor or something else was bad. Going slow the heating element was ID'd to be the problem in about one hour. Searched on line and found your site, ordered the part and in 1 day had the part. It took about an hour to install. Wife is very happy. Overall an easy task. Thanks much.
