Wife says dryer drying slower than usual, vents are clean and clear. Is it possible for the electric element to be partially burned out or would the whole element quit if there was a heating element problem?
For model number MEDX655DW1
Hello Dave, Thank you for the question. Some of the coils can burn out but in most cases you would have no heat at all. You should be able to see visible damage to the element if it is defective. We suggest testing the Thermal Cut-Off Kit and the Internal-Bias Thermostat with a Multimeter to check for continuity. We hope this helps!
Hi Shanna, thank you for your inquiry. We recommend the following: completely clean your lint trap, remove lint inside your dryer, and clean the vent hose and drum. Wipe out thoroughly with a mixture of baking soda and water. Then spray some lemon-scented all-purpose cleaner on a cloth and wipe out and then wipe out again with a clean dry cloth. Run a full dryer cycle with a damp towel in it and some dryer sheets. We hope this helps.

First tried heating element and thermal fuse with no luck. Ordered thermal cutoff and fixed problem. Had I used an ohm meter first I would have determined problem before having ordered heating element and fuse, as both had resistance. I wast just lazy and ordered the took the most common failed components first before taking dryer back off.
The repair was easy. the most time consuming part was vacuuming the dust from the back of the Dryer, The repair required removing screw from the back panel of the dryer. Then removing screws from the heating element and unplugging the wires. The only moderately diffculy part was swapping the sensor form the old element.
