When the electrical components in your dryer heating element fail, it can generate a lot of heating element terminals, which can be dangerous.
It’s a safety feature that will trip if the circuit is overloaded, preventing the circuit from closing and the dryer from heating up.
Step 9 – Put the front cover back on
Now that the heating element has been successfully installed, you’ll need to put your dryer back together again. Start by placing the front plate onto the dryer and secure it in place with the screws you removed earlier. You can then put the lint filter/ trap back into your dryer.
Step 2 – Remove the back cover
Once the dyer has been disconnected from the vent and power supply the next step is to remove the back cover. This is because the heating element is behind it. To remove the cover, unthread the screws that hold it in place and the panel should clip off. Once removed, put it out of the way and keep the screws in a safe place.
Step 6 – Remove the element
Once the heating terminals have been disconnected your next task is to remove the heating element. This can be done by unthreading the screw that holds it in place and then taking out the element. Make sure you keep the screw in a safe place as you can use it for the new one. Once the element has been removed, disconnect the thermostat from the element by unthreading the four screws that hold it in place.
