At the back of the dryer there is a small plate secured by 2 screws. Behind this you will see the spindle secured by a solid wire curled around it. remove this wire and the drum can then be removed.
Hope this helps &thankyou for using Fixya.

No heat output

in electric dryers,no heat is often caused by burnt-out heating elements,then overheat thermostats,and lastly operating thermostats.this assumes power and drum operation are nominal. some elements are in a "containment vessel". the really tough ones are behind the drum WITHOUT a separate enclosure. as it. is with dryers,the drum belt is best untightened by undogging it from the idler pulley.

Where do I find the heating element in my hotpoint dryer

Heating element is behind the drum. Disconnect power. Use putty knife to release 2 spring clips holding top at front edge of dryer. Swing top back. Remove two screws holding dryer front to sides near open top. Swing dryer front to the side. (you don't have to disconnect the door switch wires) Remove plastic tub block at top center of opening. Release belt. Pull up on back of drum, then pull drum out through the open front of dryer.
