Remove the front panel to get to it. Once you get the front panel off it is easy to remove the drum and replace the element. First remove the top then the front then you have it.

SOURCE: MY DRYER Frigidaire Model Number

Sounds like your heating element has broken. Unplug from electricity. On the front of the dryer there are two clips that hold the top of the dryer to the front they can be tripped by inserting a flat blade screwdriver between the top and front panel apx 2 inches in from the side in the seam where the top and front come together. These clips are sprung steel and you have to push hard. (I usually give the screwdriver a sharp rap with a hammer) When you trip them you can lift the top up and backwards. Then about 12 inches down the inside front you will see a 5/16 nut that holds the front to the sides take them out. Then you can pull forward and lift the front off the machine. You will need to remove the belt you can look under the drum the belt goes thru two pullys one is a tensioner pop the belt off the tensioner and pay attention how the tensioner looks it may fall down and you will have to rehook it to put the belt back. I believe this model also has an access door at the tensioner and motor that gives closer access to the belt. Then you just lift the drum up and out of the dryer pull forward slightly before lifting up. The heating element will be exsposed in the back and the wire that was arching will be here. Remove the wires to the element and the mounting screws on the element pan. Unhook the Hi limit sensor on the pan and put it on the new one. Reinstall the element ect in reverse. The only problems you may run into is where the wires hook to the element can be hard to remove and unhooking the belt pay close attention to the tensioner and how the belt is attached to the tensioner and motor. This should only take you about 40 minutes to complete. I hope this helps

Frigidaire dryer will not heat


Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable.On many dryers, there's a thermal fuse mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse which is about an inch long is usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing. If the fuse has blown, you need to replace it. (You can't re-set it.)

Thank you !!

Frigidaire dryer running but not heating

If it is electric, then the heating element is defective and must be replaced ($45).
It could also be the "over-heating" sensor. If the dryer ran too long on hot, the sensor shut it down, but also damaged the sensor ($20). If so, the heating element could be ok.

Hope this helps!

A grounded element on an electric dryer is an element that has broken and the element heating wire has touched something metal, like the cage that is suppose to hold the element or the element metal housing around the element. What this does is, the element only heats on the section that is touching the metal part and usually this part of the element is only heating at about 1/2 heat output. An grounded element can also stay on even when the dryer is not in use!!
