Re: HOW TO REPLACE THE COILS
It has been a while since I fixed one but I think you have to get the top off first. Then you can get the front off. Then go trough the back hatch and get the belt loose from the idler. Then remove the drum. It is a piece of cake after that. Clean it up good and check the blower wheel for looseness. Those coils you speak of are very easy to swap out, No way to get the 2 hooked up wrong.

Most all dryers, including combo washer/dryers, have an electric wire coil for a heating element. I suspect yours has given up ( they usually break in two, stopping the electrical flow). You should need to have the element replaced. Going to need to take the whole machine apart to fix this. Be blessed.
I pulled apart the back of my dryer to access the heating element. I noticed I have a break in one of the coils. So, that means I need to buy a new one. The thing I noticed is that only of of the terminals at the bottom of the heating element has a plug on it. There are no additional wires inside the dryer that could have come off so I am a little confused as to if i new coil will work. I watched a video online and it clear shows both terminals being connected. Anyone have any advice?

Oh boy.. This is a huge job. Start by first taking it all apart litterly. take the rear section of the tub off and pull out the old bearing and press in the new ones... make sure to put them in right they only go in one way and the wrong way will result in getting them stuck ...sometimes forever.
Check the inner basket while you are their. Most of the time when the bear is bad the basket is bad or close too. This if from Hard water and most of the time using none HE soap and or using way to much.
Thanks and good luck
Sorry to read about your problem, I hope this helps you out.
Clean your dryer vents, and lint filters. You may need to clean vent from wall to outside. to test this.. unhook vent pipe from wall..and run dryer and see what happens. If the problem does not improve, you may have a defective heat coils.

One way to tell if it has a heater element problem is to use an Amprobe to read how much current the dryer pulls when operating. If the amps are 2/3, 1/2, or 1/3 of what it's supposed to pull, then it's an element problem, and you need to fix that.
My only question is, how long would it take to dry that same load of sheets when the unit was new, and does the time now compare to the then?
This machine drys by intermittently spraying a mist of cold water into the warm, moisture laden air traveling in the tube at the back right side of the machine. The cooling of that air stream causes moisture to condense and join the added water, which is periodically pumped out the drain. It takes a long time, and the clothes are not as "dry" as you may be use to with a conventional dryer. Never try to dry more than a half tub of laundry. These machines are great if you have small amounts of laundry to do, have limited space, and / or do not have 240 volts, (or a gas supply) and cannot do an outside vent. Don't plan on doing more than two loads per day. (one in AM, one in PM) Please don't bother rating, as anything but a Fix-Ya will lower my score. Thanks.
You have a clog somewhere in the venting. Anywhere between the lint screen and the outside of the house. Use a vaccum with a crevice tool to reach behind the lint screen. Also check the flaps on the outside of the house. You can also access the machine end of the vent pipe by removing the two Phillips screws on the angled panel just below the dryer door. If you feel you need to take apart the machine further to clean behind the lint screen, write back. It's very tricky, and will take some time, but I can walk you through it.
