Drying had not ran in a while. But when I went to laundry room getting clothes of top of dryer. The dryer was hot to touch. I unplugged and left it all night. I plugged it back in next day and dryer ran but didn't heat at all. Does this sound like a heating element? If so what element would i need to purchase?
ANSWER Robert, Based on your post, you're on track. You most likley had something small and metal laying across the element and touching the casing. Tghat would cause the dryer to be warm, when not in use, and would eventually cause the element to short out and not heat in the next time used. There is only one heating element 5300622034 but you have the option of replacing the assembly 131553900 . Either way you'll need to dismantle the top and front panels, and remove the drum to access the heater it's located inside the cabinet behing the drum.
