Here we have a dryers high limit thermostat located on the heater assembly. If the cycling thermostat fails the dryer will revert to using this thermostat creating long run and dry times. A faulty cycling thermostat or clogged dryer vent will cause a dryer to have an issue like this.

When replacing the heating element the thermostat will need to be removed from the element terminal. To do so use a small flat head screw driver and wedge the thermostat wire off the element.

Once the arm is released from the element it will pivot up and out of the way. Also note when testing with volt meter you remove one wire from the thermostat, failing to do so could result in an inaccurate reading leading to a miss diagnosis.

If you are having troubles finding and or testing, any part on your dryer and need a hand, were here to help.

Having an appliance repair technician come out to replace the dryers heating element should be a thing of the past.

Why pay a service technician over $200 dollar to come to your home and replace your dryers heating element.

Depending on where the heater element is purchased the part runs around $25 dollars, what costs $200?

This is a simple job and can be accomplished with basic tools that are in just about every home.

Replacing the dryers heating element is done so by removing the back panel of the dryer.

Having the back off will allow access to the heater housing, removing the two screws on the side will allow the element to slide down and out of position. Remove the thermostat from old element and place on new.
