Check the thermal fuse with a meter located on the blower wheel housing,take out the lint filter,remove the bottom cover and remove the metal duct that the filter slides into,you'll see the thermal fuse on top and to the right of the blower wheel,pull one wire off and read out the fuse.while you have the duct off clean it out,vac the inside of dryer and clean out the vent line,why did you change the heat element?usually there isn't two problems,next time read out the parts with a meter so you're not changing out good parts

Barrel turns no heat-new fuse-same-new element-same. Old element burned could new fuse pop and I need new one


Be sure to check for lint inside the filter housing and also vent blockage. 240 volts is going into the dryer. The motor runs on 120 so you might have a voltage problem. Heating element needs 240 volts. here is my video let me know if this helps:

Brand new dryer wont heat


depending on which model roper dryer it can be a thermal fuse,high-limit thermostat,cycling switch,burned off wire in control panel,check each side of the heating element to ground and find 125 v.a.c. then on the side of the element that has low or no voltage on it to ground start at the element and back track the components leading to the dead leg on the element till you find 125 vac to ground and replace or repair component or wire,then you should get 240 to 250vac across heating element terminals

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.
