GE dryer dwsr463eg7ww timer isn't working and doesnt heat up


The heating element assembly warms the air before the air enters the dryer drum. If the dryer won't stop, it may be because the heating element assembly isn't working - which greatly increases the drying time. Check the heating element for continuity. http://www.repairclinic.com/RepairHelp/How-To-Fix-A-Dryer/7-3-850356-/GE-Dryer-won-t-stop-DWSR463EG7WW

How do i change the element on a samsung dryer


Hello.

When the dryer just isn't getting your clothes dry anymore, the culprit is usually the heating element. The dryer part may look intimidating, but you can replace the heating element.

Step by step instructions

TOOLS NEEDED New heating element,Screwdriver, Needle-nose pliers.

1 Unplug the dryer from the wall before starting. Find the dryer heating element cabinet. For most dryers this is located in the back, however it can be in the front. Find the compartment on the dryer.
2 Remove the screws or clips to get into the compartment to expose the heating element and wires. Use a needlenose pliers to carefully remove the element wires.
3 Detach the can shaped object that may cover the heating element. Tip the can backward to slip it off the hooks holding it in place. Some models place the heating element with the can, while others provide easier access to it.
4 Unscrew the screws holding the element in place and pull it out.
5 Put the new element in place, and replace the screws to secure it in the dryer. Put the can back in place and connect the element wires before putting on the cabinet cover.
6 Run the dryer on fluff with no heat, and go outside to make sure enough air is getting through the vent system.
7 Break the new heating element in by running your dryer on high heat for 10 minutes without any clothes in the dryer. This cleans oily residue off the element and keep the clothes from getting smoky.

Thanks.

Dryer does not heat and continues to run/will not shut itself off


This is probably due to a faulty heating element, something the average do-it-yourselfer can replace. Disconnect the power supply, then refer to the owner's manual for procedures to remove the front panel from your specific model. If your dryer has a toe-kick plate in front, that's all that needs to be removed.

1)Locate the heating element heat shield, a box on the lower right side of the dryer.
2)Using a screwdriver, pull the two screws at the front of the heat shield. Remove the front of the heat shield or, if it is on a hinge, flip it down.
3)Remove the wire leads from the heating element terminals by pulling on the leads. To avoid damaging the wires, do not grab them when you pull off the leads.
4)Remove the holding screw on the side of the heat shield that connects to the heating element.
5)Remove the heating element by sliding it out of the heat-shield box. Install a new heating element and secure it to the heat shield with the holding screw on the side.
6)Reconnect the wire leads to the new heating element by pushing them onto the terminals. Place the heat shield front cover back into position and secure it with the mounting screws.
7)Replace the front panel or toe-kick plate and reconnect the power supply to the dryer.

I have a kenmore Ellite Dryer that works but is not heating.


Is this a gas or electirc dryer?
If it's an electrical dryer it's probably the heating element.
Pull the dryer out, remove the back panel and look to see if the heating element is heating up (turns red). If not it's the heating element which is pretty easy to change.
Call an appliance parts store with the make and model number before you pull it out to make sure one's available and always take the old one with you to verify it's the same.
Hope this was helpful.
Good Luck!
