Question about Crosley CDE6000 Electric Dryer
How do you replace the heating element(s) in a Crosley dryer? How do you get to it also?
Before you replace the heating element, check the thermal fuse. All heaters have safety thermal fuse. This opens in case the thermostat fails. This is normally attached on or near the heating element, looks like diode. (When replacing, do not solder ! this will damage the fuse)

Back panel. look for small sheet metal screws and disassemble metal panels (and possibly drum shaft bushings) until coil is seen.

Where is the heating element in my crosley clothes dryer

SOURCE: Crosley Dryer Heats then stops
If im thinking right, this dryer has the element in the top left corner. This unit has two thermostats, one mounted right above the element, and the other in the lower left front mounted on the fan housing. The one in the front is called the high limit thermostat, which means when it gets to a preset high temp, it cuts off the system until cooling occurs. The top thermostat, mounted above the element is the operating thermostat. It probably is one of the two thermostats. Its a very good idea to replace not only both of the thermostats, but the fuse as well. The fuse kit (Maytag Part# LA-1053) comes with a thermostat and 2 fuses, be sure to follow he instructions on how to determine the fuse for electric and gas. The high limit thermostat (Maytag Part# 53-0771) is an easy replacement. Something is causing the unit to short cycle. Sometimes you can hot-wire the operating thermostat (use caution, severe caution if doing this, not recommended if you arent sure whats going on). By doing this (removing the two wires from the thermostat, taping them together), you can watch and see if the element stays on longer, at least until the high limit switch comes on. This is really not recommended, if the high limit is out, it will not be good. Just easier to replace them both.

I used to work for a Crosley dealership. The number one problem is gonna be the blower wheel.go ahead and pop the top(after unplugging the machine) Get the front off and then get the drum out. Clean out all the lint. 31001043 is the part number
