The heating element is BEHIND the dryer drum. You need to remove the drum in order to access it. Keep in mind, if you have a heat related problem, it may or may not be the heating element. It could also be the thermal cut-out (TCO) which is mounted along with the heating element. Again, you will need to remove the drum to get to it. The TCO acts as a fuse and is designed to blow to protect the heating element if it overheats. Check the TCO first to make sure it is not blown. If you need further assistance, please post back with your MODEL NUMBER. I hope this helps you.

Dryer runs but no heat. Stackable set, dryer on top.


More than likely the Thermistors are blown. They are located on the heating element canister inside the dryer, they are kinda oblong shape with two electrical connections. If you have a multimeter you can check for continuity on the thermistors and the heating element just be sure to disconnect one of the electrical connections on the thermistors and the heating element so you don't get a false meter reading, Thermistors can be purchased from most appliance repair businesses for around $30.appliancguru.jpg

Dryer drum turns, no heat, replaced thermal limiter


Your model which we call the 417, is not usually easy to work on. The heating element is located behind the dryer drum. The drum has to be removed to change the element. There is a lot involved but given the cost of a stack unit the element and labor may be worth it.
