Where is the heating element located? My dryer will not get hot.
Answer Hello Judie. The element is located in the back of the dryer behind the drum. You have to remove the drum to access the element. Check and make sure you have 240 volts coming to the dryer. Check and make sure the unit is not set to Air Fluff. Also check the heater and thermostats and see if they are good. You can test these with a multi-meter TJMA-DM1. They should read closed for continuity. 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

Change a coil heater and some thing shorted out. Want did I do wrong?
Answer Hello Brad. It sounds like when you replaced the coil, you had some of it touching the metal housing. This will cause the unit to short out. When replacing the element, you must make sure it does not touch the metal housing on the unit.
How to Find & Install Heating Element for this dryer
Answer Hello Muggs. 131553900 is the correct element. You will need to remove, the top, the front panel and door assembly, and drum, disconnect the wires to the element and thermostats, then on the back of the cabinet, you'll need to remove the four(4) retaining screws, that attach the element and housing to the rear of the cabinet. Here's some basic help : Unplug the power cord or remove power to the dryer. Insert a flat tool or putty knife between the top and the front panel and press in on the two spring clips holding the top and raise it. Remove the one screw from each side, located about 6 inches down from the top that holds the front panel to the side panel, release the clips holding the front panel to the side panels and gently lean the panel forward, disconnect the wires to the door switch and drum light, etc. Remove the rear louvered access panel, and remove the drum belt by releasing the tension on the idler pulley. Using the belt raise the rear portion of the drum to release the "ball" from the "hitch" and move the dryer out the front of the cabinet. Disconnect and label the wires from the element, thermostats,etc. From the rear of the dryer, remove the four(4) screws securing the heater assembly to the rear of the cabinet. reverse the procedure(s) and test the dryer for heat and operation.
