Question:

I replaced the heating element on my dryer but realized the purple element wire on the right hand side of the heating element has no conductivity so i'm thinking maybe it's bad. It should have conductivity correct? What is this wire for and what is the part number for it so i can order? Thanks

Aaron for model number DX2300EG1WW
Answer:

Hi Aaron, Thank you for your inquiry. Yes your wire should have conductivity. Unfortunately I would not be able to tell you what the wire is for without looking at your model. The wire is more than likely part of your appliances wire harness. Unfortunately it does not look like that part is available. You may have to contact your manufacturer to get the part number. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

In reinstalling the drum, is it difficult to attach the belt to the pulleys? I asked this question before but it was phrased wrong.

Daniel for model number DWXR463EG1WW
Answer:

Hi Daniel, Thank you for your follow up. No, it is pretty simple. You just have to make sure that you run the belt in the same way that it was set up inside of your appliance. I would suggest taking a picture for reference before removing your old belt. Good luck with your repair.

Question:

The dryer does not heat at all. How do i know if it is the cycling thermostat or the heating element ? Secondly, in reinstalling the drum, is it difficult to the get the pully in position?

Daniel for model number DWWXR463EG1WW
Answer:

Hi Daniel, Thank you for your question. You can actually test both of those parts with a multi meter. When testing, if the meter does not move from its original position then you will know that part is not working. It should not be difficult to get the pulley into position. You just have to pull it into position. Good luck with your repair.

Heater element went out

First of all, unplug the dryer. I removed the two screws on the front of the cabinet to remove the top. I then took out the screws to remove the dial panel. Release the belt for the drum through the access hole in the rear of the dryer. Remove the front cover and pull the drum assembly out.

Remove the element disc from the rear of the housing, take note of the the wireing placement. Replace disc and reverse order of disassembly.

This job was easy for me as I am a tinkerer by nature. The hardest part of the whole job was waiting on the part, which by the way was ordered on a Sunday evening and I had the replacement in my hands and back in the dryer running by 1:00 PM on the following Tuesday!

I book marked this website and WILL refer it to others who simply need a repair, not a costly new appliance!

Dryer wasn't getting hot

1. removed two screws to take off top.
2. removed two screws to take off front.
3. Took belt off pulley and removed drum.
4. inspected old heating element at back of dryer - saw broken wire
5. replaced heating element (round w/ heating coil)
6. Re-assembled dryer

Helpful hints:
1. mark down or take pictures of all wires before removal - easy to mix them up
2. when you re-attach drum-belt, it should be taught. Comes straight down wall around metal pulley and then forms an "S" as it wraps around plastic pulley on way up. To re-attach, stick both arms into dryer - one to pull plastic-pulley and other to attach belt.

Dryer took a long time to dry clothes

First I removed the removed the screws that held the top on the dryer. Next I removed the screws that held the controls on from the back. I then removed screws that held the left side in place and removed the drum by first removing the drive belt.
The heating element unit was removed by removing four screws and the wiring harnes. I reversed the procedure to install the heating unit and put the machine back together.
