First make sure you have 240 Volts going into the dryer. If you do you would need to chase all the wiring for a loose connection (usually burnt). First look at the timer, then there are thermostats near the element to be checked and there is a switch mounted on the outside of the motor; it has two "bigger" wires connected to it. Sometimes the connection burns loose at that point.

SOURCE: getting to heating element/thermal fuse for amana model LED 20AW

I just replaced mine by taking the bottom off, but in hindsight I think I should have been able to do it by just removing the lower front panel. With long arms, you should be able to reach back and loosen the two bolts holding it in place. Good luck!

LED20AW Heating element


No Jim, that amount of lint is normal in all of those dryers. You should clean it out annually to prevent fires. The front panel under the door is all that you should have to take off to get to the heater coil and to clean it out.

How do I check my hot water element?


1)Locate the upper heating element in the top access. The heating element is above the thermostat, and all you will see is a round disc with two wires attaching to the disk.
  • 2)Set your ohm meter to the X1 or RX 1 scale to measure the continuity of the heating element. Touch each of the ohm meter probes to each of the terminal screws on the heating element. A positive reading indicates a good element. If there is no reading, the element is faulty.
  • 3)Test for a possible short in the heating element with the ohm meter. Touch one ohm meter probe to one of the heating element terminals. Touch the other ohm meter probe to the bracket that secures the heating element. If you get a reading of zero, the element is good. If there is any positive reading on the scale, the element is grounding itself and will require replacement.
  • 4)Test the lower heating element exactly as the upper heating element.
  • 5)Place the access doors back on the water heater tank, and secure them with the screws.

  • Good luck

    Oven won't heat, all burners work


    I suggest that you remove the upper and lower heating elements to the oven, turn the oven switch to on, then use a good digital voltmeter, and check the plug that the lower heating element was in. If you have good (200 volts or more) then purchase and install new heating elements. Turn the oven switch to Broil setting and check the same way for the top heating element.

    Kenmore Dryer -will spin but not heat and dry


    The ohms reading on a heating element should never be zero. The resistance is what turns electricity into heat. You may have gotten a bad part. Check it again with NO power to the system. Unplug it or flip the breaker to be sure. You should definately get a reading on a good element. Good luck

    Oven will not turn on. but stove top works fine. model#jgbs07pea2ww


    A common problem is the heating element goes bad. I have had this happen and you can see a spot on the heating element which looks different from the rest of the element (a clue).

    Many ovens have two heating elements. Upper and lower. Now I am no Julia Child, but I think bake turns on just the lower heating element? And broil turns on just the top heating element????

    So I suppose you might have it on bake and it is not working. Might try broil and see if that works. If yes, then you are getting power through all the controls to the upper heating element, so good chance just the lower heating element is bad.

    If you don't get heat to either the upper or lower heating element, then I would suspect the wiring or a control.

    So far as the heating element, you should be able to remove it and using an ohm meter, get some sort of reading if it is good (I have no idea what though). Or open circuit if bad.

    Also the insulation on older ranges can "melt" back exposing live wires! This is of course very dangerous and the wiring should only be replaced with high heat range wiring which I assume you could get at an appliance store?

    Or the contacts on a control/switch could be bad. I would test this with a continuity tester or ohm meter.

    Many appliances have a wiring diagram down low somewhere. Or might find it online.
