Question about Dryers
It is not that easy.
If you only replace the element with one with smaller impedance (also less watts), the element will blow immediately. You would need to put in the middle a custom made board with a couple of extra resistors.
Also the result will be different, this dryer is designed to work with a 4.5 KW element. All the thermal sensor will react differently and the dryer wont pump hot air efficiently if you replace the sensor.
This kind of job can surely be done, but the result may not be good. I doubt you can find any repairman willing to do this adaptation, better buying a different dryer.
