You access the heating element through the back of the drier. Pull the drier out from its resting place, un-plug it from the wall. Remove the back and look for a removable plate that will have wires mounted to it. That should be the heater coil / element. First find your make and model numbers, find a local appliance parts store, call and see if they have one and how much they cost. They will even have books that tell you how to fix it yourself. Hope this Helps FixYa up..
The letter/number combination is an error code. The dryer is trying to tell you what is wrong / what has failed. You then talk to service person, tell them what the code is, and it can save you time because the service tech is better prepared to work on it. Many error codes are common along product lines due to bugs and such when the unit was built, or it may be a maintenance code that you can resolve yourself.
Compare the code that you are receiving to the user manual troubleshooting / installation chart.
what size is your breaker how many amps it should say on breaker are you cleaning the lint screen with it on top if the drier is getting too hot there is a device in it that's called a thermal limiter that would blow before the breaker would trip what kind or you in a house or apt. now on high heat can you hold your hand on the side of the drier.or cant touch it look at the vent under your house and tell me 1is it hanging down under the house then coming up to the hood 2whats its diameter3whats it made of we will go from there ok.there are three thermostats in that drier the first one runs at about 150 160 max second is a safety in case the first one fails it cycles at about 250 third is a safety if the drier exceeds 300 it will shut the heater down and wont rest it has to be replaced
I had the same problem with my dryer. The large cloths drum rides on two wheel bearing rollers that are mounted behind the drum. If one of those bearings to the rollers wears out, it will make a loud racket. If you want to repair it your self, purchase a repair manual for your model dryer. Then Disessemble the front of the dryer to expose the large drum. Remove the belt that goes around the drum. Then remove the drum. You will then be able to see the two rollers that the drum rides on. Go to your nearest parts store and replace both of them. Good luck.
the serial number found on the door frame sticker will tell me who manufactured it for sears. I could then discribe to you how to complete the repair.
sounds like the drum glides are worn. easy repair. once I know what drier it is i could even send you the part numbers. one way to quickly check is lift the drum up from inside the drier and see how much space is between the drum and the support at the front. it should be no more than 3/16 of an inch to a quarter inch.
