There are a few differant styles, give me your model number and i will see which one you have.

why do you think it needs an element? if its not getting hot you may have a cheaper and quicker repair than an element

SOURCE: replaced heating element in dryer. will not run.

You have a bad (thermal limiter). It's like a fuse one time shot, it stops all of the control power to the dryer. Try testing it with the dryer unplug use a ohm meter across the leads. It should read some type of a reading, if it reads OL it's burn out.

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.

My dryer will not heat up


hi friend,
Step 1 The most common cause of a dryer not heating is that the air duct gets clogged. This can cause a fire and should be cleaned out about once every couple of months. Take the air duct off from behind the dryer with a screwdriver and take the other end off near where it goes into the wall. Run a hose through the air duct until all the junk and lint from inside gets out. Let it sit in the sun for about an hour to dry then hook it back up. Try the dryer out to see if it heats again.
  • Step 2dryerrepair_thumb.jpg Dryer thermostat The dryer's thermostat can also be the cause of it not heating. Locate your dryer's thermostat and take it out with a screwdriver. Take your multimeter and set it to the resistance setting. Put one lead on each terminal. You should get a reading of 0, or -1, which means infinity. Any other reading than this means the dryer's thermostat is bad.
  • Step 3dryerheatingelement_thumb.jpg Next, test your dryer's heating element. Heating elements cary in what they look like but you should see some sort of coil of wire like a toaster. You can do a search online for your dryer's heating element. Once again, set your multimeter to resistance and take the heating element out. Put one lead of the multimeter onto each terminal of the heating element. You want a reading that is not 0 or -1. If you get a 0 or -1 your dryer's heating element is bad.

    • Make sure you un[plug the dryer before you start to fix or repair it.

    We have a Kenmore Gas dryer it runs but it doesnt get hot.. any ideas what it could be?


    The heating element is most likely burned out. Try ordering a new heating element for your dryer and calling a repairman to put the new heating element in.

    My maytag electric dryer will not heat up. it's a de107


    Have someone check to be sure you have 240 volts to the plug. The dryer will run on 120 volts but must have 240 volts to the heating unit. If you 240 volts you probably need a heating element or control.
