Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
okay on this dryer its always the element. let me look up the correct element and get you a link to the part, I"ll be back shortly, thanks Bryan
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.

okay, there are two ways to do this , one replace the whole element and heater assembly at around $70.00 or you can restring the element. restringing is around $48.00 but getting the whole element is easier. here a link to the whole element.


and heres a link to the restring kit .


both have a video to show you how to replace it. thanks Bryan

also dryer squeels.could this be the belt?Is heating element and belt easy to install?
Expert:  Bryan replied 5 years ago.
yes actually the reason the dryer is squealing is because of the back bearing that holds the drum is bad. that lets the drum sag also and can short the element . the belt wouldn't cause the squeal. this is the rear bearing . you will see it when you replace the element, here a link to that part with video. the bearing runs around $22.00.
