How to Replace a Heating Element in a Clothes Dryer
If your dryer isn't producing any heat but seems to be working fine in every other way, it's likely that the heating element has gone bad. The details vary among different dryer models, but the principle is the same: A string of coiled metal wire, similar to the heating element in a toaster, is positioned near the rotating drum, glowing red and heating up the drum as it turns. If the coiled wire develops a break anywhere, the entire element will stop working. Replacement coils are inexpensive and easily found online by searching on the model name of your dryer.
