How many wires are there?
Are you just replacing the old element?

I have never worked on a haier dryer before.

Could you post a photo of what your working with?

Haier dryers are a lot like a bosch dryer. it has a coiled small heater on the back  just   below the center of the drum...need to remove the back to get to it.
Check the Basics first!!! Read the Manual !!!Buy the tech a Beer!!!

If it is similar to the Samsung machine, which I am fairly certain it is, the low temps are controlled by the main PCB which reads the thermister. You may have a bad board there.

I think you should stick to the brands you are familiar with JW   :D


Stabbing at it won't git 'er done...

This machine is also basically the same as the WP 24" dryer, which manual is below:

I believe Haier makes them

This has no board,just a simple timer.All lights,timer and switches work off 240 volts.

Like this one:




Your wiring diagram is pretty straightforward, although the  wires are not labeled. You might just have to  go wire by wire and see that they terminate where they should. The heater has 2 different elements in it...one is either open or not getting 240 from the switch.
