SOURCE: changing heating element

No need to buy the whole pan. The replacement coil is way less. 5300622032
Very easy dryer to repair. Start by popping the top and then removing the front. Get te drum out and remove the heater assembly. Remove the old coil. NOTE: when replacing the new coil be vewy vewy careful not to stretch the coil too much as this causes a hot spot and shortens the life of the coil considerably as in like one load maybe. LOL.

How do I remove a Samsung Dryer DV4006 heating element


You will NOT have to remove the drum, as the previous poster said. Unplug the dryer (VERY IMPORTANT). Undo the screws for the cover at the top right at the back of the dryer. Your element is here. Detach it from the cover plate. The undo the bottom cover plate so you can access the plug where the element attaches. You will need to reach in and manipulate the wire out of the clips (easy).
To put it back, just reverse what I've said.

Bra wire stuck between inner and outer drum how to remove Hotpoint WMF760


Depends where it is stuck. If near the very front you can sometimes get them by removing the door seal to gain a small access between drums. Other ways is remove the outlet pipe from the bottom of the drum or easiest and most probable area where it stuck is remove heating element. Provides a better view and bra wires normally get stuck on them.

I Have an indesit WG 1185 B - WG 1185 - W and a piece of wire has got under the rubber seal and in under the drum. You can hear it scraping along the drum when in use and after using it a couple of times...


The easiest way to remove objects from between the drums is to remove the heating element. To do this remove the backplate from the machine. the element is located on the back of the drum and is rectangular shape with curved corners and will be secured by a single nut in the centre. To remove it unscrew the nut and pull the element out, usually the wire will be wrapped around the element, be careful not to damage the rubber seal and make sure the machine is unplugged before attempting. if you need any more help please let me know.

Thanks,
