Admiral electric dryer - Heater element out
« on: December 08, 2010, 03:35:06 PM »
I've been searching for a service manual and found many interesting threads here but no manuals as of yet. I ohmed out the t-stat, fuse and heater by reaching way in the back while laying on the floor. Only the heater is open so that must be it. What I can't figure out is how to remove it. There is no back cover and please don't tell me I need to remove the drum. I only see what appears to be one bolt on the upper left side of the that drum pulley.

Here's a pic and thanks for any help.

To remove the heating element look at it from the front just like the way you took the photo.

Unplug the dryer.

Unplug the wires that go to the element. Then all you have to do is remove the one screw on the left side and the other screw on the right side of the element.

I can see the two screws you need to remove from the photo you took.

Let us know how it goes or if you have any other questions.
Hope you find our site helpful.
