Good day,
The first thing to check is the voltage on the back of the machine. Be careful. That's 240 volts. It should read 120 volts from one end to the center terminal. The same for the other side. Across the 2 ends it should read 240 volts. Correct as needed. The motor runs on 120 volts so it can run even if one side is out.

From the front, you have a mired of limit and control thermostats, fuse links ect. They are located on the heat tube and around the blower housing. They should test at at zero ohms with the machine unplugged. The most common one to fail is the thermal fuse. it looks like this.

In addition, there is the timer and heat selector switch but they rarely fail.

How do i change the element on a samsung dryer


Hello.

When the dryer just isn't getting your clothes dry anymore, the culprit is usually the heating element. The dryer part may look intimidating, but you can replace the heating element.

Step by step instructions

TOOLS NEEDED New heating element,Screwdriver, Needle-nose pliers.

1 Unplug the dryer from the wall before starting. Find the dryer heating element cabinet. For most dryers this is located in the back, however it can be in the front. Find the compartment on the dryer.
2 Remove the screws or clips to get into the compartment to expose the heating element and wires. Use a needlenose pliers to carefully remove the element wires.
3 Detach the can shaped object that may cover the heating element. Tip the can backward to slip it off the hooks holding it in place. Some models place the heating element with the can, while others provide easier access to it.
4 Unscrew the screws holding the element in place and pull it out.
5 Put the new element in place, and replace the screws to secure it in the dryer. Put the can back in place and connect the element wires before putting on the cabinet cover.
6 Run the dryer on fluff with no heat, and go outside to make sure enough air is getting through the vent system.
7 Break the new heating element in by running your dryer on high heat for 10 minutes without any clothes in the dryer. This cleans oily residue off the element and keep the clothes from getting smoky.

Thanks.

We have a Kenmore Gas dryer it runs but it doesnt get hot.. any ideas what it could be?


The heating element is most likely burned out. Try ordering a new heating element for your dryer and calling a repairman to put the new heating element in.

Need to change heating element on my kenmore dryer


they are pretty simple to change out.the heating element should be easy to access and once you get the old one out you simply put the new one in in its place. depending on the machine the heating element should be in the back wich means you have to take the top off the dryer to access it and then you will see what you need to do from there,its only held in but 2 or 3 screws.
