This is a diagram of your particuliar unit. These Hotpoints are manufactured by GE. The heating element is right behind the drum itself. First is to unplug the unit. Open the door, and look at the top edge of the top of the door. You will see two screws that hold the top down. Remove these screws, then lift the top off. You will have to reach your hand under the drum (and really reach around) and unhook the belt from the idler pully and motor pully. The drum is now free to pull out, directly forward. Your heating elements are now right in front of you. Be sure you check both for drooping, touching each other or the sides, broken wires, etc. Also, these elements are very, VERY expensive. They make a rewire kit that will save you a TON of money. Instructions are included with the kit, Be sure when you put the drum back in, you grease the rear bearing slide and plug.

Heater Assembly (whole unit) Part Number WE11X103 $90.00
Restring Kit: WE11X203 Part Number $35.00

Also, both of these parts are usually found on E-Bay in groves. Do yourself a favor, do not buy them from Sears, they have too high a mark-up, shipping is also way to high, and takes forever to get there. Let me know if you need further help. Thanks and good luck!!!!

SOURCE: my hotpoint dryer keeps tripping the whole house

It is more than likely a faulty heater element or thermostat/s that is causing the problem.
These are usually located at the rear of the dryer.

Diode? Ain't no diodes. 3a90295.jpgIf all of theses items check good you might have a burred contact inside the timer. These dryers have a timer that is easy to take apart. Gently remove the motor and cover, look for a burr between the leaf switches. File em down smooth. Let me know.

My Gibson dryer has a three prong plug on it.I

The National Electrical Code began requiring 4-prong receptacles for 220-volt residential circuits in 2000, but it doesn't prohibit you from using your older dryer with a 3-prong cord. Instead, it allows you to change the cord so that the dryer can be plugged into a modern receptacle, and the procedure isn't very complicated. Four-prong dryer cords, or pigtails, are available at hardware and electrical supply stores, and usually cost less than $20. To make the switch, you'll need a green ground screw to attach to the dryer body so the machine can be grounded by the ground wire.

1 Unplug the dryer and move it to an accessible spot. Unscrew the plate on the back that covers the electrical terminal with a screwdriver. You'll find the cover on the back of the dryer near the bottom of the machine at the point where the cord exits.
2 Loosen the three terminal screws holding the cord. Before you remove them and take off the cord, note the colors of the screws and the wires attached to them. The screws holding the black and red wires are brass and the one holding the white wire is silver.
3 Remove the ground strap from the silver terminal. It may be a small metal plate or a length of wire connecting the terminal to the body of the dryer. You may be able to pull it out with pliers, or you may have to loosen a screw to remove it. Its function was to ground the dryer, and that function will now be served by the ground wire on the new pigtail.
4 Insert the brass terminal screws into the ring lugs attached to the red and black wires on a replacement pigtail and the silver screw into the ring lug on the white wire. Drive the screws into the same slots from which you removed them and tighten them securely with a screwdriver.
5 Drill a 1/4-inch hole in the body of the dryer within reach of the fourth wire in the pigtail, which is green. Insert a green ground screw through the ring lug on the end of that wire, drive the screw into the hole and tighten it securely.
6 Feed the cord through the notch on the terminal cover plate and screw the cover plate to the back of the dryer.

Things You Will Need
  • Screwdriver
  • Pliers
  • Drill
  • 1/4-inch drill bit
  • Ground screw
  • 4-prong pigtail

  • There usually isn't room behind the cover plate to install the ground screw. If not, it's acceptable to attach the screw to the back of the dryer outside the plate.
  • Check the grounding with a multimeter before you plug in the dryer. Set the meter to ohms, touch one lead to the dryer body and touch the other lead to the ground prong on the plug. The meter should show less than 10 ohms of resistance.

I just purchased a new home and the pigtail of my Amana dryer is different than the electrical outlet and the dryer does not have a schematic to install a new 4 wire pigtail. Is there an adapter to change...

There are no adapters. But a dryer will accept a 3 prong or 4 prong cord. The extra green wire just needs to be connected to any screw on the dryer casing. Some newer dryers have a screw there for it..or u can just use the closest screw avalable......usually the screw for the cover works good.
