First of all you did not even begin to mention a model number. They are not all the same. Having said that the concept of changing a heating element is pretty much the same for those with through the lower tub mounts.

1. Turn off all power to the unit
2. Open the lower kick panel
(It is usually in 2 pieces) The top piece being fixed and the lower piece being adjustable to the floor. Remove BOTH panels.
3. Locate the 2 heating element terminals that pass through the bottom of the tub and disconnect the wires.
4. Losen the retaining nuts on the heating element. Push up on the elment to make sure it is free before totally removing the nuts.
5. Remove the nuts and then lift out the old element by opening the door and lifting out the element.
6. Note the position of seals and washers on the OLD element
7, Assemble the new element with the tub side seals and washers. Leave the under side washers off until after you place the new element in the dishwasher.
8. Install the underside seal and washer then install the nuts loosely.
9. Check the position of the element inside the tub. (Align as necessary)
10. Tighten the heating element retaining nuts on the under side of the tub. (DO NOT over tighten as you can damage the element.)
11. Install the 2 heating element terminals makeing very sure the connections are TIGHT. A loose connection will cause the new element to fail prematurely.
12. Connect power and test for leaks.
13 Leak test complete install both lower kick panels.

Task Complete!

    The restraining nut is actually the long plastic part around the terminals. This worked GREAT! Thanks!

My Rheemglass Fury is not putting out much hot water

I believe that there are 2 separate electric heating coils in this unit (unless you are talking about the GAS unit). One of the coils either has a wire broken or the element needs to be replaced!

Hi I have a GE model# DSS25KGRE BB fridge. The fridge runs constantly, meaning it cools until the coils get all frosted up. then the defrost heater kicks on and 'thaws' the coils. I have tried

OK, first check the condenser coils and fan to be sure they are free of lint and dirt buildup. Dirty coils will keep the unit from cooling correctly and the unit will run endlessly. Post back the results to me and we will take it from there.

My radiator started leaking and my mechanic said that he replaced the heater coil. What is a heater coil and would it cause my radiator to leak?

Your heater coil is most often located in your vehicle's firewall. To find it, locate your water pump on your engine block and follow the water hoses back to the firewall. Where these hoses end you will find your heater core. To answer your question, no, your heater coil will not cause your radiator to leak. They are two separate units.

Dishwasher will not heat water

You will need to find the heaters and disconnect the power line to the heater coil element. Now check the continuity of the coil using a multimeter, if open the coil must be replaced. if there is resisitance then check the line to the controller unit , connect the washer and switch on and check the voltage when the program cycle is on the heat wash. If there is no voltage the relay would have failed or a fault in the controller unit drive.

1965 Frigidaire unit - heavy ice build up on coils

Sound like the defrost thermistat or heater is bad. Regardless if you have ice block on coils defrost thermistat must be replaced. Even if still good it gets damaged. Empty out fridge and let manually defrost for 24 to 48 hours. With doors open and unplugged. Test heater with a meter to see if its still good. Replace defrost thermistat and plug back in.

Carrie window unit will not give out heat

You have a burnt out heater coil. This coil is located right behind the evaporator coil in the front of the unit. To access this heater coil you need to pull the unit from the casing and look between the coil in front and the fan blade. This coil may be housed in a metal casing. It looks just like a coil inside of a toaster long thin wire. This isn't an easy job to replace them unless you have done it before. If not it, should't cost a lot to have an a/c tech come out and replace this part and do a preventive maintainance on the unit. Good Luck on repairs

Check filters to see if dirty, clean or replace. Is the coil or condensing unit iceing up? If so, have your system recharged and checked for leaks.

GE Profile SxS Refrigerator wont defrost after new heater installed

If one coil was burnt out and you replaced the heaters and defrost terminator switch I would recheck the continuity through the defrost heaters. You can do this with an Ohm meter with the refrigerator unplugged. If you had an open coil in one of the heaters you did not have to replace the thermo disk. If you have a complete circuit through the heaters try using the old thermo disk. If you have a meter you can check the voltage from the heater connection on one side to the inlet side of the thermo disk with the refrigerator running in the defrost mode. You should read 115-125 Volts on the meter. This reading tells you that the defrost timer is supplying power to the heater circuit.
