HELPING DO-IT YOURSELFERS SINCE 1999

Dryer did not blow hot air everything else worked fine

My Repair & Advice

1) Unplug dryer 2) Remove top - 2 screws on the back. 3) Move control unit out of the way - 4 screws on top 4) Remove front pannel. - 4 screws on top of pannel, 2 screws in front, by the door. 5) The heating unit is on the bottom, right hand corner -- looks like a thick pipe with thermostats coming out of it, on the left hand side. 6) Remove the whole heating unit - 1 screw holding it to the base. Remove the base (2 screws) to allow the heating unit to come out. Need to umplug 2 thermostats and heating element. 7) Take heating unit apart by removing screws in the middle & one side of the thermostats -- it opens in the middle. 8) Remove old heating unit and replace with new one. -- Wires won't come out of the base unless you straighten the little metal bend on the plug -- this prevents the wires from falling from the plug. 9) Put everything back together. 7
