We have an LG electric dryer, DLEX7177WM, manufactured SEP-2005. It stopped heating tonight. The cycles all work, the lint filter and hoses are clean, great airflow. Ideas?

<p>Hi Bryan,</p><p> </p><p>I'm sorry, I did not have a chance to pull the dryer out until this evening. I'm not quite sure just how to reveal the heater and thermostat. I see that they are located on the bottom, back side of the dryer according to the diagram you've provided. Can you please tell me how to access them directly?</p>
here are all the diagrams, you need to go in from the front by removing the front panel. take the top off the dryer and then the control panel assembly then the whole front panel door and all. link to the diagrams.thanks Bryan
