You will have to replace the element with one recommended for that model. This is not an easy job.

Dryer does not heat


Hi there,

Well first all you may check out the heating element, it is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are not repairable. You need to open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it. and you need a multimeter to check it out. Secondly you may check out the Thermal Fuse Once a dryer's thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse is blown, you need to replace it. Post further comments for further help or information.......
Good Luck!!

CLOTHES DRYER HEATING ELEMENT


The heating element is SUPPOSED to cycle on and off. That is normal. There is an Internal Bias Thermostat and a Hi-Limit Thermostat that help regulate the internal operating temperature of the dryer. However, if you are experiencing longer dry times, or poor drying efficiency, the following link can give you some things to check before you assume there is a malfunction with your dryer:

http://www.fixya.com/support/r3578821-dryer_takes_too_long_to_dry

The number one cause of dryer heat related problems is poor exhaust ventilation. If not vented properly, a dryer will not dry efficiently, will actually take longer than required to dry, and will cause the heating circuits to overheat to the point of failure. The dryer will actually seem hotter than usual in many cases and the heating element will appear to glow brighter as the heating circuits begin to overheat. This is also the source of many fire hazards if not resolved. Read through the link provided and review some of the potential causes.

If you have any questions, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER and let me know. I hope you find this information is helpful.

NOTE: If you thoroughly check everything and still have problems let me know. The problem could be related to a thermostat beginning to fail.

Trying to determine if it is worth replacing the heating element on a 12-15 year old electric dryer?


Are you kidding me? Light bulbs don't last for 15 years, why would ya think your dryer heating element would last longer. Me I replace the element every time. Todays newr electronic **** is worthless.

GE Prodigy Electric Dryer not getting hot


The exhaust hose in the back will not affect whether the dryer will heat. The hose just removes the used hot air to a place outside your house. I assume dryer drum spins, but you get no heat. If the dryer has gotten a few years of use, I suspect that the heating element has gone bad. Have you noticed that it has taken longer and longer to dry clothes than it used to? If so, most probably the element is bad. The element is not unlike a heating element in an electric stove, and is housed in a duct inside the dryer.
