After tackling other problems with our dryer yesterday we noticed it would not get hot after we put it back together. It had been on its side and moved around a lot. There was also a surge of power when we plugged the dryer back in. It blew a circuit, but we switched it back on then it wouldn't heat. Could this have caused the heating element to go out. When would you buy a restring coil kit versus the entire heating element? We are getting ready to check the thermal fuses, as well. Do you think the fuses should have kept the heating element from becoming fried?
ANSWER Hi Sulli. The restring kit will save you money. It is a doable part change. You just have to space evenly and make sure all is equal between the spaces. Make sure they are inserted into the ceramic standoffs tight. Heater restring kit part # [AP26210171]. Thank You.
