If the model number you have this listed under is correct, you will need to open the panel under the door. This is accomplished by removing the screws under the bottom edge of the lower panel. HINT: If you prop up the front feet of the dryer, it makes access to the screws much easier.

With the screws removed, the panel will drop down and off. The heating element is located on the right-hand side under the drum, inside a heater box. CAUTION: Make sure you UNPLUG the dryer before servicing anything inside the unit. Dangerous voltage is still present even while the unit is turned off.

Is there any reason why you need to know where the heating element is? Do you have a heating problem? Please elaborate?

If the model number is not correct, please post back with the correct information. If you need further assistance, please let me know. I hope you find this information helpful.

Why doesn't the compressor start in the heat mode

If the compressor is off and the heat coil is on - this is normal for the "E" or emergency heat setting. Check for proper connections between the Heat-pump, furnace(heat source) and the thermostat and that the thermostat is capable of controlling a heat-pump with secondary/emergency heat units. Thermostats designed for this have 4 settings: Cool / off / heat / E(emergency heat). in the "heat" setting, both the Heat-pump and Aux heat work together to maintain temperature. In the "E" setting, only the Aux heat source is used. The "E" setting should only be used in extreme cold - when the Heat-pump can no longer produce heat.

EM HEAT.... does it stand for ECONOMY HEAT or EMERGENCY HEAT? They both conflict. Someone's misinformed.

It stands for Emergency Heat. (Back up heat) . Normally you will find it on heat pumps. It's used manually when the compressor goes out on a heat pump. It's used automatically by the unit when it's so cold outside the heat pump can't keep up. This happens when there is not enough heat in the air to draw heat from. This happens at around 23 degrees. I hope this explains what emergency heat is and what it's used for.

Dryer has no heat, not heating elament

Test the outlet for 240V. If that's ok, you've already replaced the element so remove the wires from the thermostats and test them for continuity (you might want to test the element for continuity just in case). If that's ok, there might be a problem with the timer. Depending on the model you may be able to open it to verify.
If you're still having problems, post your model number and I'll try to assist you further.
Good luck!

Fisher and Paykel DEGX1 Electric Dryer Stays Warm

Yes, get a new element. The reason it's on all the time is because the element coils have broken and one of the coils is touching the canister that encloses it. This creates a direct short to ground. By the way, the element has 120 volts to it all the time. It will only HEAT when 240 is applied through the centrifugal switch of the motor. Your 120 volts is shorting to ground... not enough amps to trip the circuit breaker, but enough to glow the element.
