I have just replaced my dryer belt and have now noticed the heating element coil is broken since no heat was being given out when reassembled. I have removed the drum and the coil on its' heavy metal frame which is very rusty but may last for a while. My question is: is it best just to buy the replacement coil or the whole frame and coil?
Answer Hello Alan,
If you are not accustomed to replacing the element winding, it is probably best to order the assembly. The reason is because if the element isn't stretched properly and gets against a ground, it will cause you to have to replace it again, not to mention the fact that it could become a fire or electrical shock hazard if it shorts to ground.
