Admiral / Maytag Great Dryer. takes 11 hours to dry a load. Actually it just quit heating all together just now. Model ADE7000AYW. If I order the heating element is there any other part(s) that should be replaced while I am at it? The machine is 10 years old but still is nice. Mike
ANSWER Mike, If you're replacing the heater element kit LA-1044, you need to consider a replacement thermal fuse 53-1182. the element kit contains the element assembly and the hi limit thermostat. Manufacturers require that when a thermostat is replaced, the corresponding thermal fuse be replaced as well. You also want to inspect the wires to the element, fuse, and thermostat to make sure they weren't damaged or overheated.
