Dryer runs but wont heat. I assume the element is bad. If I order AP2620171, must I remove the drum to get to the element or can I get to the heating element assembly from the back? Just looking for the easiest may to install the element.
ANSWER Hello Roy. Yes, you will need to remove the drum to replace the heater if it is bad. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
