How do I access the heating element, back of the dryer had screws which I took off but still won't come loose, seems like small welds. Help.
Answer Hello TR, The element is attached to a bracket but you can remove screws to get the bracket/element out of the heater box. It should be as shown in the picture. Hope this helps!
Could you tell me where is the fuse located for this dryer and how to access?
Answer Hello Syed. The fuse 3390719 is located on the blower housing. You will remove the toe panel to access and test the fuse in the unit.
I had a power outage. Is there a reset button for the heat to return working?
Answer Hello Frank. The only reset is to flip the breaker. 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
The dryer stopped heating, but everything else still works.Where is the element & thermal fuse located ,could these be the problem. Thanks
Answer Cliff, Yes, a defective element 279838 or open thermal fuse kit 279816 would not allow the dryer to heat. To access the heater and fuse, you'll need to remove power to the dryer, slide the dryer away from the wall and remove the rear cover panel. The air duct on the right(looking at the back of the machine) has the thermostat and thermal fuse mounted at the bottom and the heater assembly is afixxed to the duct by 2 1/4" hex head screws that will need to be removed in order to inspect the element for damage.
Can't figure how to replace element from front load dryer. I got it out but not sure how to put it back in. Part # 3387747.
Answer Hello Ken. The housing goes back into the unit the same way you removed it. The housing goes inside the hole in the back and then you secure it in place with the screws to the brackets and frame. These are a very tight fit and can be difficult to do.
