Is your dryer not heating? Is it possible that your dryer heating element is bad? This free troubleshooting video shows step-by-step instructions on replacing the heating element and rear housing assembly on Electrolux, Frigidaire,Tappan, Gibson, Westinghouse, Kelvinator, Kenmore electric dryers.

Tools needed: putty knife, screwdriver

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Your dryer's heating element could also be only partially burned out. If it is, your dryer still heats, but at such a low temperature that it takes three or four times as long to dry the clothes. If the heating element is partially burned out, replace it.
