The back of the tub has the stem on it it fits into the heating element pan, there is a bearing that the stem on the tub goes into, it is kinda hard to get it to align up but keep trying
if it is not in the bearing it will make a lot of noise and can short out the heating element so keep trying till you get it right

Heating Element
A defective heating element can make a dryer too hot. If the element partially shorts out, it can produce heat all the time, regardless of whether the dryer is calling for heat. Remove the heating element to inspect it. The coils should not be touching each other or anything else.

Other Causes and Conditions
Air Flow Problem
Dryers need good ventilation to work properly. If the vent is clogged it can make the dryer too hot. Clean all of the vent tubing thoroughly.

Cycling Thermostat
Although not common, a defective cycling thermostat can make the dryer too hot. The cycling thermostat is supposed to turn on and off the heat to maintain the proper temperature. If the thermostat is defective it may keep the heat on too long. The thermostat is not adjustable or repairable, it must be replaced.

Felt Seal
Most dryers have a felt seal at the front and rear of the drum to keep the heat inside the drum. If the felt seal is worn away or missing, the dryer may keep heating and make the dryer too hot. This is not common.

Blower Wheel
A defective blower wheel will not spin properly and will not vent the hot air, making the dryer too hot. Check to see if there is adequate airflow out of the dryer.

Hotpoint dryer (nvl333eyoww) not heating

The thermostat and element are mounted on the back wall of the dryer. To gain access you must remove the drum. Here is my home movie:

Ok got a GE DVL223EB1WW Insufficent Heat

Yes think so , what should happen is element heats up controlled by fan blowing cold air across it this then heats to whatever thermostat is set to switch at, which in turn controls heat level..Air is then exausted via hose to waste unless its a condenser drier which then turns the steam back to water / which is collected in a waste condesate drum..hope this is helpful...

Not drying in one cycle

pry the top up at the corners and then open the top. now look inside the front panel about 4 inches down on both sides and remove the 2 screws or hex heads holding the front to the cabinet. Remove door switch wires and remove front, carefull drum will drop slightly, you may want to lay it on it's back before removing front panel. from there if you have posted right or close to right model number, the 3 screws you see in the drum, remove them after undoing your belt. remember how you undo the belt so that you can put it back on the right way. Pull drum up out of cabinet and there you will see your heat element. from this site it shows a double element. Might be only one half working causing the lenghthy dry time if this is bad replace it you'll know if one half is bad. Clean all you can while apart you can also slide out the rear bearing out of the bearing cup and apply some high temp grease there. If your element is good change the thermostat. from the looks of this belt make sure the grooves are facing up on the drum or it won't go back on right on the motor and tensioner pulley. I hope this helps you and Good luck.

Where do I find the heating element in my hotpoint dryer

Heating element is behind the drum. Disconnect power. Use putty knife to release 2 spring clips holding top at front edge of dryer. Swing top back. Remove two screws holding dryer front to sides near open top. Swing dryer front to the side. (you don't have to disconnect the door switch wires) Remove plastic tub block at top center of opening. Release belt. Pull up on back of drum, then pull drum out through the open front of dryer.

This is a diagram of your particuliar unit. These Hotpoints are manufactured by GE. The heating element is right behind the drum itself. First is to unplug the unit. Open the door, and look at the top edge of the top of the door. You will see two screws that hold the top down. Remove these screws, then lift the top off. You will have to reach your hand under the drum (and really reach around) and unhook the belt from the idler pully and motor pully. The drum is now free to pull out, directly forward. Your heating elements are now right in front of you. Be sure you check both for drooping, touching each other or the sides, broken wires, etc. Also, these elements are very, VERY expensive. They make a rewire kit that will save you a TON of money. Instructions are included with the kit, Be sure when you put the drum back in, you grease the rear bearing slide and plug.

Heater Assembly (whole unit) Part Number WE11X103 $90.00
Restring Kit: WE11X203 Part Number $35.00

Also, both of these parts are usually found on E-Bay in groves. Do yourself a favor, do not buy them from Sears, they have too high a mark-up, shipping is also way to high, and takes forever to get there. Let me know if you need further help. Thanks and good luck!!!!
