Yes it is. You don't have to remove dishwasher to do this. Make sure power is off and light underneath the dishwasher and you will see 2 nuts holding it in. Remove wires and nuts and then lift out and install is just opposite.

Original Heating element and replcement elements both burnt through at same isolator...just that lucky or another issue that causes that problem?


If the new element burnt through quickly then I would suggest replacing the insulator just to be sure before installing a new element.

The wire connecting to the heating element keeps melting/burning. Ive replaced it twice, each time it melted, how do i fix it?


What size wire? When you replaced the heating coil, what did you use? Was it OEM? What part number? Do you have an ohm meter?

Can someone tell me how to get my gas dryer to hear up again?


I take it you mean heat up again? If its a gas dryer there should be an igniter under the front cover or sometimes there is a small plastic hatch easily removed...replace the ignitor easy cheap fix..If its electric probably the element is burnt out.

Maytag Dryer MDE3706AYW has a burnt black wire, did the wire just have a bad day or do I need to replace the heating element and the wire?


All should be good. I think the element had run on due to a bad hi-limit thermostat that you said you replaced.

My dryer runs but the heat wont work


Your heating element has most likely burnt out, although it could be just a wiring fault.

If you have a resistance tester (multimeter) and you can get access to the element, you can check this very easily. Simply put the test probes onto the live and neutral terminals on the element (With the power OFF) and you should get a resistance reading of 0 (zero) ohms. If you get a reading of 1, you have an open-circuit, meaning the element is burnt out.

They are fairly simple to replace if you're a reasonably competent DIY'er with basic electrical knowlege. Universal elements are often available far cheaper than the specific OEM part and work just as well . . . in my opinion.

If you can post the model of your dryer and location, I may be able to find a supplier for you.

Please rate my solution if you find this helpful.

Polohunt1@aol.com my bionaire bch9221 120 volt heater does not produce heat anymore.....i'm thinking that maybe an element within the unit is burned out.


Mine was doing the same thing. Took it apart and found that the white wire which hooked up from the circuit board to the heating element had burnt which broke the connection...hence no heat....replaced burnt wire and resoldered to heating element...put it back together and voila I have heat once more....still doesn't solve why the wire fried though....

Had foolishly tried to remove baking element w/ oven turned off but still plugged in / breakers still on (all to make cleaning easier-ha!) unscrewed element beleiving it was modular like stovetop elements....


Some times s**t happens. The most likely situation is the wire connections that connect the heater have burnt off, or simply just become disconnected.


the normal repair or replacement to the lower heater element would be to disconnect the wires from the heating element by sliding the wire off of the spade connector. Some times they are connected by a screw and nut terminal. Next to remove the screws from inside the oven, and then pull the element out from the back wall. I can see how you could easily interpret that they would slide out like many stove top elements.

In your situation confirm that power is off.

Remove back panel and check terminal' connections to the heating element. repair.

Stove top burners and lower baking element not heating up


If all the elements are dead, check for blown fuses/tripped circuit breakers. There may be some in the range unit itself in addition to your electrical service panel. If one element is completely dead on all heat settings, the control is probably bad or there is a broken wire. If it is stuck on high for all control settings or is erratic, the control is bad - replacements are readily available and easily installed.
On ranges with push button heat selection, a pair of heating elements are switched in various combinations across 120 and/or 240. If some heat settings do not work, the most likely cause is that one of the heatings elements is burnt out although a bad switch is also possible. Kill power to the range and test the heating elements for continuity with resistance meter or multimeter.

For the lower baking element:
Again, check for blown fuses in the oven or tripped circuit breakers. The remove any wiring to the bottom element and test for resistance. If you get no reading (or a very high resistance) then your element is dead.
