I need to remove the heating element to test it or replace it. How do I get it out of the dryer?

Dave for Model Number pdet920ayw

ANSWER Hello Dave. Use a flat blade to release the clips and raise the top of the unit. Then remove the screws securing the front panel and remove the panel from the unit. Once removed, you will test the heater Y503978 in the unit. It should read closed for continuity. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. 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
