how does the hearting element secure in the back of the dryer Whirlpool Mod Lec 6848AQ1

Ok on the top of the heater duct there is a 5/16 screw you need to remove ,

and we even put a 1/2 hole in the rear of the cabinet so you can get to it .(a six inch 1/4 extention with 5/16 socket works great .

Once the screw is removed and after the electrical connections have been removed the duct need picked up 1/4 inch. and pulled out

Then you remove the heater and duct ,and then you have one 5/16 screw that hold the heater element to the duct.
