Frigidaire – built (Frig, Westinghouse, Tappan, Gibson, Kelvinator): most newer models tuck theirs above the large round element ‘pan’ behind the drum. There’re often tight ones to get to, but if you pop the cabinet top (a putty knife pushed into the front, on each side, releases the top clips) and swing it up out of the way, you’ll see it back there, next to the safety tstat. It’s the smaller round device, and its wire terminals are usually the smaller 3/16 inch ones.

GE/Hotpoint: Pre ‘Profile’ models mounted their thermal in the same basic location as Frigidaire.

One final note on these: if you find your thermal fuse (or element) open, before replacing it, be sure to check the airflow out your dryer’s vent system. Even though these devices do ‘wear out’ with age, poor airflow’s the #1 cause of failure of these devices, and if your vent’s partially clogged, a new thermal won’t last very long, but will do its job again, and leave you ’cold’ (a new element won't last long if the vent's clogged, either).

MY dryer stoped working


I need your model number to be more helpful. You can start by checking your door switch if the dryer just won't start. You should hear a click from the door switch when you open or close it. If no sound then replace the switch. If the dryer runs, but no heat, often a dryers heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.
On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse--which is about an inch long--is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it.
Here is a video to help you check for the problem.

My dryer stopped heating up so I tried to fix the heating element. I noticed in the other one that some of the coiles broke in half so I knew this was the problem. Well I bought a new one, hooked it up and...


Could be a defective element, but it also could be your thermostats faulty...give them a check.
Normally you can only hook up the heating coils one way...I do not believe that would be the problem.
Hope this helps

My mother-in-law is having a GE electric dryer


Hi, This has a 2 piece heating element. One possibility is the half for regular heat is broke and shorts out on the housing. This would cause the element portion that is shorting out to stay hot and not cycle with the thermostat. Does the dryer try and heat while the timer is off? Have her open the door with the dryer off and look through the back of the drum and see if there is any glow. Then set the timer without starting it and look inside to see if there is a glow. This happens at times when the element shorts out.
Without being there.. this is my theory. She might need a repairman because to get to the elements is a job.

I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, The element broke and shorted out against the metal on the dryer. The thermostat did not cause the element to break and will still be ok. You replace the element and you should be ok.
I hope this helps you. Please let me know if I can assist you further.

GE Harmony electric dryer model DPGT750EC1PL- very little heat - small rattle - takes hours to dry load of laundry... any ideas?


Check the following to address this issue.


Note: Normal drying time for a dryer is about 45 minutes (some may take up to an hour).

1. Venting
Make sure the dryer vent hose, as well as the rest of the vent duct, is not clogged.

Unless regular maintenance is performed, chances are there is a lot of lint accumulated inside the dryer. This might affect the drying time and could be a fire hazard. Make sure to have your dryer cleaned regularly. Because this might involve taking most of the dryer apart, it is recommended to have a qualified appliance repairman perform this task.

2. Thermostat
There are a couple of cycling thermostats inside the dryer. If one of them breaks down, it might affect the dryer's performance. Replace the defective thermostat.

3. Heating element
A heating element might only be partially burned out, in which case it would still work but will take longer time to dry the clothes. Replace the element if found defective.
