SOURCE: older amana electric dryer model #le8457w, wont heat up

You probably have a bad heating element. This is just about the easiest dryer to repair ever. Take the screws off the base and pull the front off. The heater is on the left on bottom and has all the fuses mounted on it. 2 screws hold the whole thing on. get it out and give it a look over for a bad coil. Not sure if it is bad? Take it to the appliance parts store and let them guys confirm if it has a problem. they will be glad to do so because they hate to have to give refunds on electrical stuff and they know the cust will get bent outta shape. Trust me. How do I know? Because my friend I used to own and operate an appliance parts store.

SOURCE: I have an older Whirlpool Electric Dryer-tub won't turn

Hi Judy,
Yes, it is most likely caused by a belt which has either broken, stretched or simply come off. Have somebody open your drier to determine what the actual problem is.
Also make sure that the motor which drives the drum is still spinning.
Best wishes,

How do I change out the heating element on my kenmore oasis electric dryer model 110.67032600

Use a putty knife to press against NUMBER43.
This is a newer cabinet but basically busts down like an older one.f4825eb.jpg9b58516.jpgAfter the front is removed the dryer magically becomes exactly like this older model here: Cabrio dryer service manual. Similar to oasis.

Not drying my cloths . runs but there is no heat

Since the unit will run but won't heat...

The following are things that could stop an electric dryer from heating:

bad heating element(s)
loose, corroded or burnt wire(s)
thermal fuse ( not all models )
motor heat switch
selector switch

The older the unit the more likely it's heating elements or thermostats

Sorry....this can take some time to diagnose

Electric dryer heat coil off mid cycle

You have 3 thermostats. By the description of the problem it sounds like it needs a new high limit thermostat. All 3 thermostats and the heating coil can be checked with an ohm meter. Also check the ground on the heating coil. It could be grounding it's self out.
