The steam on the front was 2 spring clips,one on each side in the front, use a putty knife to pop it up,then looks on the back wall and you will see the thermal fuse and the heater coil-mike

How do i get dryer apart to get to heating element model mde308 dayw


unplug dryer, move out from wall so you can get to the back. use a 1/4" nut driver and remove the rear panel. The heater element is on the bottom right. before replacing check for continuity. if the heater has continuity, check all of the other componets on the rear of the dryer. i would advise to check the small white thing with 2 wires connected.

Heat Element is working and drum spins, but no air is blowing?


First make sure that the dryer is vented properly, then check the blower wheel. A common problem is for the center of the blower wheel to get rounded out through wear and tear, allowing the blower wheel to spin on the shaft, thus not spinning at the same speed as the motor. I will attach a photo for reference. Sorry for your trouble and I hope this helped. Best wishes.

How do you expose the heat element


Take of back of unit, unplug first. Heat element is near heat duct side with wires attached to it. Unscrew and slide it out. You could also put a tester to each wire to see if you have a complete connection. If ok check thermal switches, one could have gone bad.
