IHAVU: Just did this myself, took about ten mins, very easy, one thing about this
tutorial, I can't figure out why you would try and put the belt on from the
front of the machine when you could have done it very simply from the back
where you could actually see what you were doin, not tryin to be a prick
haha, I was just losin my mind watching you fumble with that hahaha, no big
deal, just sayin haha
RB26dett GTR: i just replace mine and it's not hot enough...does it take time for it to
heat up properly?
Dave D: The model is LEQ1452KF0 - Thanks
Dave D: I opened up the dryer and found the heater element was broken, put in a
new, but when putting everything back together,
the drum did not align with the door, seemed like the drum was not out
forward enough to mate with door correctly , what am I missing?
Josh Roemer: So, Easy repair for me. Everything went smoothly. Except now the dryer
won't turn on! Before it was running but no heat. Now nothing. I retraced
my steps, checked the outlet, (only one it can fit in) reset all the
circuits breakers. Not sure what to do now.
PartSelect: Hi there, My apologies - are you able to clarify your question? Thanks!
1ApolloOne: That is a very informative video. I can read a procedure, but it's always
better to see someone actually do it. One question, though. If the heater
element is bad is there any reason you can't just replace it alone, or is
it preferable to replace the whole heater assembly?
PartSelect: @1ApolloOne Thank you for your feedback. Glad we were able to show you
visually how to replace the heating element. In some model of dryer's such
as Whirlpool you only need to replace the heating element alone other's
like this Frigidiare you need to replace the whole assembly. It depends on
the dryer's manfacturer. You can check out what type of element your dryer
needs by searching for parts using the model number. Hope this answers your
question. I will also email my answer to you.
1ApolloOne: I made the repair this weekend and it went flawlessly. Everything was just
as you described. And I purchased the part from your company, which arrived
the very next day and was less than half what Sears was charging. Thank you
so much for your help. I would also add to the procedure to take the time
while you have it disassembled to use a shop vac to clean the whole thing
out before putting it back together.
DrMark920: As a DIY I have to say this is the best repair video I have ever seen.
Seriously, this is so well done. Thanks for the quality job. It inspires
Jack Robinson: Being a complete novice at dryer repair the video is a bit confusing; for
me anyway. You talk about removing the element housing and then replacing
it with a new one. Then you mention re-connecting the thermostat and then
the two wires to the heating element itself. The confusion.... Where is the
heating element? It is in the housing? Can't really tell in the video.

denise isaacs: We have a dryer with the same part number but the controls aren't on the
front of the dryer, the are on a panel on the back top of the dryer, if it
was like the one you are working on no problem! :(
