The heating element is in the back of the dryer.there should be a cover you can remove so you can see it or you may have to take the top off the dryer to get to it. either way it is the back of the machine

If you dryer lint screen is located at the top of your dryer your heating element is going to located at the rear of your dryer. You will need to remove the back of the dryer to get to it. You will see a housing and the element is located in there. If you lint screen is located in the door when you open the door then your heating element is located in the front. This one is easier to get to. Simply remove the bottom panel under the door and you will see the heating element right at the front on the right hand side. Make sure you unplug the dryer before working on it. If you have any other questions feel free to ask and also please let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and glad to help.

Model LEQ6000ES Affinity Frigidaire electric dyer purchased 5-29-06: tumbles but won't heat. Cleaned all air ducts and lint trap and still won't heat. Error codes not obvious. What else can we check?


you will need to check the main power and make sure there is 220 volts at the termianl block if that is goor then you will need to check the heating element an all thermal fuses.

remove the small panel in the back of the dryer so you can get the belt loose.
then remove the lid.Take out the four screws that hold the control panel in place.
then remove the screws that hold the front panel on and then remove the drum lift up on the back of the drum to get it loos e from the carrier bearing holder thenyou can get to the heating element and thermal fuse on the back wall of the dryer and the side wall of the heating element can.

Dyer is not heating up.it turns on and runs but it just does not heat up i took off hose and clean . also looked in back of dyer by taking off clover to look for fuse please help .


Kenmore dryers have what we call a thermo fuse, usually on top on the burner area - I would check continuity on this unit and replace if nesessary.
If the thermo fuse is okay and dryer heats up with gas, check your igniter and/or gas unit coils.
If dryer heats up with electric elements check continuity at both element ends and/or high limit thermostat.

GOOD LUCK!
