Question about Kenmore Dryers
Heater element is in a solid unit, not the newer style where the bottom half is removable.
Brett, this tells me that you have an older unit and there is a 5/16th screw into a clip at the top of the heater box. There may or may not be a hole in the back panel above the heater box where you could put a nut driver through to loosen the screw, if there is not a hole you will need a stubby handle and nut driver to get to it or use a 1/4" drive ratchet with a 5/16th socket and reach in above the heater box to find the screw and clip. Once you have the screw and clip out, pull out on the upper half of the heater box until you feel it pull out of it's hole and then lift up on the whole box about an inch and pull out at the bottom to disengage the bottom clips and then pull the box down and out of the machine. You should also find a 5/16th screw or two that hold your heater frame into that box. Hope this helps!
