The dryer no longer heats. Do I replace the heating element or could it be something else?
ANSWER Hello Isis, after you disconnect power to the unit, the next thing to do is check for restricted or blocked venting. This can cause the dryer to run too hot and blow a thermal fuse 3390719 or thermostat 3391914 killing power to the element 3387747. Sometimes it's just a burnt wire but, here's a link to help you with troubleshooting. Thanks! http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/dryer-repair-help.html#electric
