How do you replace the heating element???
Answer Hello Dan. You will disconnect the power. Remove the front panel by removing the screws and pull forward and off the unit. Next remove the element from the unit and split the housing and restring the element.
Dryer was taking along time to dry and now has no heat. Could this be heating element?
Answer Hello Lynn. 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. Check the vent on the unit as well for clogs and kinks. 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
My dryer runs but doesn't heat up, is it the heating element?
Answer Hello Felicia, I found model number "CDE"4205AYJ instead of "CED"4205AYJ so you may want to re-check before ordering parts. There is more than one part that can keep a dryer from heating, such as a thermal fuse 33001762, hi-limit thermostat 303396, the heating element 307178, even a broken wire or restricted venting. Here is a link to help you determine the problem. Hope this helps! http://www.appliancepartspros.com/repair-help/dryer-repair-help.html#electric
