I want to switch out the heating element...model 96281100....but I can't access the element because it is enclosed in a metal tube. How do I switch these elements?


Raise the top and remove the clip holding the top of the element chamber. Then lift out the heater chamber and remove the screw.themobilian_2737.jpgthemobilian_2738.jpg

Can you tell me where the heat element is on my dryer


We REALLY, REALLY need the brand and model......(!) Heating elements are typically located in a chamber. in the rear of the machine. UNPLUG the machine before you do anything......There is surprisingly little failure of the element, MUCH more common are tripped circuit breakers, restricted air flow (causing thermal limiters to open), and restricted air flow.

Dryer heat doesn't work?


more than likely your heating element has gone out. This element is located at the base of the machine and is accessed through the back. The element looks like a toasters elements and is more than likely encase in a metal box. Take the model and serial # to an appliance parts house for proper replacement part. Fairly simple to remove and instasll as you will see.

Good luck hope this helped you

Before replacing the element, have you checked the thermo switch to see it is working ? If you have this is what you need to do.
To replace the element you will need to remove the rear cover and then remove the element box ( a oddly shaped metal box ) that contains the element, then replace the element inside it by bending tabs that hold it in or ceramic parts that hold the wires off of the metal depending on the model you have. there are only 2 wires that are connected to the element.

No heat in kenmore series 80, model 85040


hello there:
here is some troubleshooting ideas for you to help
A dryer sometimes won't heat or heats too slowly because of a variety of reasons. By following the guidelines below, you can inspect the heating elements on a gas or electric dryer to pinpoint the source of the problem.
Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back service panel to gain access to the elements.
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty

Whirpool electric oven replacing bake element


In addition to what aborcass stated, I just had to fix the same problem. Remeber to turn off the power before you do this. On my stove the element acess is behind the side panel (right side when facing the stove). You remove two screws on the back and one underneath at the bottom, (you need to pull out the drawer). Once screws are out, slide the side panel forward gently about an inch and it should just drop off.
You should see the wires for the element level with the bottom of the stove. The wires will guide you to the element. And you should see that the element is screwed in with two screws to the stove. This is the tricky bit, to remove the element follow the metal piece holding the element to the right until you see a third screw. Remove this screw and the whole thing will come out. Take off the wires, replace the element on the metal strip, slide the element and metal strip back into the stove (take care to ensure the left side of the metal strip slides into the proper position under the metal clasp. Re-attach the screw, plug the wires onto the element and turn the power back on. You should have heat.
Good luck.

Kenmore clothes dryer model number 110.86880800: drum turns but no heat


hi Electric heating elements, found in electric dryers, are self-contained units located in the back of the dryer. A defective heating element is frequently the source of no-heat or drying problems. Remove the back service panel to gain access to the elements.
The heating elements are located inside the heater ducts. If you think a heating element is faulty, test it with a volt-ohm-milliammeter (VOM) set to the RX1 scale. Disconnect the leads from the power terminals and clip one probe of the VOM to each terminal. The meter should read about 12 ohms. If the reading is higher than 20 ohms, the heater is faulty and should be replaced. Replace a faulty heater with a new one of the same type and electrical rating. A heater connected to a 115-volt line usually has an 8.4-ohm resistance; a heater connected to a 220-volt line usually has 11 ohms resistance.e the heater:

Step 1: Remove the back of the dryer. If necessary, also remove the cabinet top.

Step 2: Disconnect the leads and remove the screws that hold the duct in position. Then lift the entire heater unit out of the dryer.

Step 3: Remove the screws that hold the heating element in the duct.

Step 4: Slip the new heating element into the heating duct the same way the old one came out. Be careful not to damage the resistance coils. Replace the screws that hold the heating element in the duct, reconnect the leads, and screw the unit back into position
