Where is the heating element in dryer

Depends on the brand of dryer. GE dryers are usually directly behind the drum assembly which requires removing the drum to replace. Whirlpool dryers have the heater in a duct work running up the back of the dryer. Some other brands have the heater in a round pipe similar to the vent pipe in the bottom of the dryer. Would need dryer model to tell you exactly.

Location of fuse model WER211ESO dryer

The fuse is probably related to the mains plug fuse and unlikely to be this as the machine switches on. Possibly the heater or heater thermostat. You may need a engineer to confirm which one.

Hello, I have a Model 94712 Washer/Dryer stacker that won't pump water out during the spin cycle. I have cleaned out external hose, no kinks, taken out agitator and cleaned screens in drum. Machine seems...


1. Disconnect the power to the dryer. This can be done by simply unplugging the dryer completely, or by shutting the power down to the entire outlet at the fuse box. Either way you do it, make sure you do it. You don't want to mess with anything that uses electricity while it still has power going to it.
2. Pull the dryer away from the wall. You will need to be able to work behind and in front of it, so try to maneuver it into a location you can work on both sides. If you can't, start by working in the back.
3. Remove the access panel on the back of the dryer. You will probably need to remove some screws from the panel in order to get it off. Removing this piece should give you a view of the motor and idler pulley.
4. Inspect the idler pulley and the belt attached to the motor. Often times the idler pulley will get worn out and begin to cause a high pitch squealing noise. It should be pretty obvious if it is worn out. If it is worn then head to the store to get a replacement. Ensure you get the exact same model, even slightly different models can cause the same or different problems to start immediately. If the idler pulley looks fine, continue on.
5. Replace the access panel and go around the front of the machine.
6. Remove the cabinet of the dryer and also disconnect the drum. For this you will also need your screwdriver and probably the directions for your particular model dryer, because each dryer has a different way of removing the cabinet.
7. Look at the rollers on the bottom of your machine. See if there is anything lodge inside of them or if they look worn. If they do, you will want to replace them. Again, making sure that you have the same model roller than you are using now. Many times a kit can be bought that includes the rollers, belt and idler pulley, so you may want to look into that option

I have a maytag electric dryer (model SDE4606AYW) which is making a constant screaching sound. Researching websites, it looks like it could be the bearings and/or guide rollers that have worn out. Please...

I agree, I think it is the drum rollers.

If you have a front loading machine,

Remove the electrical console that holds the timer switch, start switch, etc. from the top of the dryer.
Be REAL CAREFUL not to knock any of the wires off of the timer switch.
Then remove the top of the dryer.
Remove the front of the dryer by removing the screws at the top corners of the machine, the bottom should clip to each other,also remove the lint filter, and the two screws that hold the housing to the top of the dryer.
This will expose the drum and belt.
Remove the drum and belt and this will expose the drum rollers, idler arm
pulley and motor.
Now is a good time to check the belt to see if it has slipped off of the
idler arm pulley and also to check the belt condition for wear.
Be sure to note the route of the belt, this will come in handy when you go
to reinstall the belt.
Check your drum rollers for flat spots or wear, if they have flat spots
or wear on them replace them.
If the drum rollers don't have flat spots or wear on them then they probably
only need lubrication. Lubricate the shaft of the rollers with a good grade
of machine oil such as 3 in One oil.
Reassemble the dryer, plug back in. This should solve your noise problem.

Severe noise - drum is jammed and won't turn - LG DLE-5977 dryer

A piece of clothing is probably caught in the blower wheel.
Remove lint filter.
Use flashlight to look into filter housing to the lower left.
You may be able to retrive the item if you can see it.
Try rotating the drum in both directions while looking.

The problem sounds like your drum rollers, you can try to lube them by pulling the front of the dryer off and removing the drum. Or you can replace them by removing the front of the dryer and removing the drum.

Fabric looking belt came out of dryer. when i try to dry clothes it makes a loud noise and smells like something is burning and my clothes get twisted. how do i fix it? I have a kenmore 70 series dryer

Stop using your dryer in its current condition. That fabric looking felt is probably your drum seal. They commonly wear out. I will need your dryer model number in order to confirm how your dryer is configured and give you accurate advice on part numbers and directions on how to replace. The model number should be listed on a name plate around the door opening.
