Question about Kenmore Dryers
I am trying to see how a new element is installed, i had back surgery and i need to know which friend to help me with it
Who diagnosed the problem? It seems to me if they could diagnose it they should be able to install a new one?

Replace screws at rear exactly as they were. Entrance for this dryer is at the lower front panel.
Unplug unit first. Place a putty knife in the space between the upper and lower panel at the front of the dryer about 4 inches in from either side to push up the retaining clips while pulling on the panel. This will release the lower panel and give you full access to all the main components.
The heater is on the right in the metal can with the cover at the front. On the left side of the can is a thermal fuse that may be open to turn off the heater. There is also a thermostat that may be bad or interconnecting wiring. Remove cover at the front of the can and disconnect wires to element.Element should slide out for replacement. Look for screws retaining it if it doesn't.
Reverse above process for reassembly. Good Luck.
