How do you get to the heat element?
Answer Hello Ron. Disconnect the power and remove the front panel from the dryer. Now you can access the element in the back left corner under the drum and replace it.
How do I change the heating element in this model dryer? How do I gain access to this part?
Answer Hello Robbo. Disconnect the power and use a flat blade and release the clips under the top panel corners. Next raise the top panel and remove the screws holding the panel to the cabinet. Once removed, remove the panel from the cabinet and remove the air duct from the front of the unit. Now you can access and replace the element under the left side behind the drum assembly.
I have a Amana dryer Model Tea600. It stoped heating. Will a heating element P/N AP4072871 be the right one to fix the problem?
Answer Hello John. 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
Replaced heating element with part 61927 and it worked fine. Then I tried to reverse the door and found it could not be reversed. The door latch broke but I can hold it closed and dryer starts. The door used to open 1/2 way and now it opens all the way,so I must have installed it wrong,would that stop it from heating
Answer Bruce, It sounds like you installed the door properly, to be honest, As long as the door shuts and the motor starts and runs, it should heat, unless there's an issue with a thermostat, or wire, you may want to recheck the connections and check the thermosat for a "closed" circuit with a meter. As for the door catch LA-1003, that should be a breeze for you. here's some meter usage info if you need it, [http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html] Thanks
Hello, I changed the heating element, but it only heats on a couple of settings. What else could be wrong? Do I need to change the fuse that controls the maximum amount of heat?
Answer Marlane, I don't think you need a fuse, but it is a possible you need a thermostat Y61372. Also check and make sure the exhaust venting is clear of any clogs or debris. Good Luck and Thanks
