This dryer also has another High Limit Fuse up high on the Left. This is the one that I learned to 'tap' to reset. Do you stock this additional OEM High Limit Fuse? Oddly, It is not pictured in the list of items for this model on your page. Note that I am coming to you because these are said to be OEM parts. I am hoping that the OEM Cycling unit might remedy our problem, and after that it is definetly brush and blow out this apartments ridiculously long near 30 exhaust ductwork. THANKS IN ADVANCE!

Dryer motor runs, but no heat
To reach the heating element you only need to open the back cover of the dryer (about 8 nut-head screws). Remember to disconnect the power.

To remove the heating element there are two small nut-head screws. Remove the two electric wires. Then you can pull the heating element away.

You can check the heating element wi th an ohm-meter or visually inspect it to see if the heating element spiral wire is broken.

Don't hurry to dispose the old element. My model includes a small electric safety part. You'll need to transfer it to the new heating element (that comes without it)..

Good luck.

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.
