I have a Kenmore Elite electric drier model number 110.600952990. I have already received information on the procedure to check a no heat issue, although drum is turning. However, info on location of heating element and how to replace was not provided.
The heating element is located in the front section of the dryer on the bottom right. When you remove the lower front inspection panel you will see the heating element on the right hand side on the base of the dryer. Please see the images provided explaining how to access, remove & replace the heating element. Be sure to unplug the power cord before attempting repairs.
My daughter had her dryer worked on a few weeks ago and i was there with the tech. He had me sweep out the lint and all that was around the heating element that had gone out. I wanted to clean mine out after seeing this. He went in from the back...my dryer almost the same as hers ...I could not get in the back for the back had been painted on plus many screws and it was awkward to get in there with bending the back panel...i needed to figure how to get in the front but did not want to bend anything...this question helped me to be able to enter from the front with the explanation that was given by the tech. He stated that is why the heating element went out because there was too much lint and that the dryer bent must have been clogged at her prior house.
