Hello John,

Open the lower drawer slightly. There are 2 screws on the side panel, where it meets the back panel. Remove those, and slide the entire side panel (the right side as you look at the front of the stove) slightly forward, It should now have released from the little latches, and should flop down. Remove the insulation out of the way, and locate the element bay. It should have a couple of screws securing everything.

How do you remove the moulded Hidden Bake Element from the inside whirlpool ceramic range accubake system

first, remove power from the unit before doing ANYTHING! second, remove the back cover of the machine, this will expose another smaller panel with 4-6 screws in it running along the bottom edge across the back. after removing the screws you will have to gently BEND the panel down until you can see the wiring leading to the hidden bake element. cut the insulation covering the back of the element... be sure new element is placed in the exact location of the old one to avoid shorting the bake terminals to the metal cover, then reverse the removal process...

Usually what they mean by "hidden" element means that the bake element sits in a recessed part of the oven cavity. You only have one bake element and one broil element in the oven. Hope this helps.

Whirlpool Range GR563LXSSo Oven doesn't come up to temperature. How do you get access to the hidden bake element to check connection and voltage?

Hello- Access is thru left side panel (from front).  Unplug oven and move out for easier access. Remove panel and find cover for element under insulation. Be careful- fiberglass dust and sharp edges!  Insulation needs to be carefully pulled back enough to remove cover and element.  This is where most techs get sloppy-  Insulation should look just as good after you finish so take some time to do it right. Please acknowledge this posted solution if helpful. I have more info if needed.- Thanks- Ed
