My Maytag Mod. DE7500 elec. dryer is no longer heating up. Starts and goes around fine just no heat


Hello,

On this dryer the element is what fails, the screws are on the lower front that hold front on. You will need an ohm meter to verify unless you pull the element out and visually inspect it.

Need instructions for replacing the heating element


First UNPLUG UNIT remove the 7 or 8 screws securing the back to the dryer,the heating element is on the lower right ride where the wires are going. 2 screws hold the element in position. You will need to transfer the high limit thermostat to the new element, reinstall and reconnect all wiring, reinstall back ...Now enjoy the fact that you fixed it yourself and saved some cash as well... Good luck

New GE Profile dryer DPSE810EG7WT does not work. I wired exactly as old dryer. L1 L2 and neutral. The timer comes on but the machine does nothing! Thanks, Roger


if this is a gas dryer you would only need L1 OR L2.... NOT BOTH PHASES, this unit only needs the one leg of either A 120Volts or B 120Volts phase NOT BOTH PHASES 240 volts A.C. not 240 V.A.C. as in an electrically heated element will require to heat the system, NOW ...be careful now because one hot phase is connected where it shouldn't be!!!!

Whirlpool Duet dryer not drying like it used to


If your duet isn't heating properly and you have taken care of the lint problem then you could have one of two problems. Either you have a bad heating element or you have a bad fuse or temperature sensor.
If your dryer is not heating at all then it is most likely the fuse or temp sensor. If it is heating and just not enough it is probably a bad heating element.
Both problems would require a repairman to come and fix normally, however if you believe it is the heating element that can usually be replaced by the homeowner without too much trouble. Just make sure to ask where it is located from whatever place you but the new element from.

Whirlpool/Kenmore # 279838 instruction manual


Before replacing the element, have you checked the thermo switch to see it is working ? If you have this is what you need to do.
To replace the element you will need to remove the rear cover and then remove the element box ( a oddly shaped metal box ) that contains the element, then replace the element inside it by bending tabs that hold it in or ceramic parts that hold the wires off of the metal depending on the model you have. there are only 2 wires that are connected to the element.

How to replace a heating element for a kenmore


Hello there
i am posting instruction for this dryer below
(For some help with that, and before buying an element you might not need, please see my article entitled 'The No-Heat Dryer'). Note: Always check airflow out the vent before firing up your dryer with its new element. A partially clogged vent can burn out an element - even a brand new one - fast! Just run the dryer on the 'no-heat' or 'fluff' setting, then go outside and check for a good strong flow of air from the vent hood. If there's any doubt, Whirlpool makes a cool little airflow test kit for their dryers that will tell you for sure, from inside.
There are basically 3 styles of heating elements in use for these dryers.
1) Most common is the 'long' one, part number 4391960, accessed from the back of the dryer, and which looks like this:
wpl%204391960%20el.jpg To replace this one, power down and pull the dryer out and remove the back cover. You'll see a long, vertical 'can' on the right side, with the element coil inside. To remove this can, simply pull the element wires (can be hard to remove; I use a long-nosed pliers), the limit thermostat wires just above them, and the thermal fuse wires if equipped (this is a little device mounted high on the side of the can, with two wires attached). One 5/16" hex screw at the top and a little strap holds the can in place. Remove this screw (You can look through the small hole that lines up with it, originally to poke a long screwdriver through), tip the can rearward, and lift it off its two bottom hooks. Once the can's out, one screw holds the element inside. Remove it, and the old element coil will slide out. Slide the new one in, reverse this process, and you're done!

Whirlpool leb6000pq1 not heating


Thermostat controls heat. There is also a

motor centrifulgal switch, in the element

circuit, that the motor closes to insure

the motor is turning. Try another heat

setting. There is more than one

thermostat. You may have blown the

'thermal fuse' too, which requires

replacement. The elecment has a contact in

the 'timer' circuit too.

It is possible that your element has

failed also.

Tripped high limit. Must clean the lint

filter and the exhaust vent tube and all

the way in to the dryer. Hot air exit is

restricted.
