Hello, I have a Kenmore Elite HE3 that is not heating up at all. Would this be the heating element or is there another part failing to work properly that's causing the dryer not to heat up. Thanks
Answer Hello Chris. 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 back on my dryer seems to be welded in places. How do I get it off?
Answer Hello Juanita. You access the element through the front of this model, not the back. Remove the front panel to access and replace the heater in the unit.

Dryer gets the cloths to hot almost to the point of melting pictures off t shirts.
Answer Hello Jeremy. Look for a venting issue, grounded heater, or bad cycling thermostat on the unit.
Can someone show me how to change the heating element?
Answer Hello Jason! Once you've removed power to the dryer you will need to release the clips holding the toe panel in place.. The element is behind the toe panel under the drum on the right side. You'll need to disconnect the wires to the heater element terminal block. Remove the 1/4" hex head screw holding the bracket / shield to the base of the dryer and the 1/4" hex head screw holding the heater box bottom panel to the bracket, and remove the bracket/shield assembly. Remove the 1/4" hex-head screw from the side of the heater housing (located between the element terminal block and the hi limit thermostat), and slide the heater out of the duct. Reverse the procedure to install the new heater assembly.
