    How to replace dryer heater

    Model Number: DV448AEW/XAA
    Brand: Samsung
    Age: 1-5 years

    My Samsung dryer has stopped heating. I need to know how to replace the heating element or check to see if it needs replacing. I cannot find how to get to the element. If there is something else I should check please let me know what it is and how to check it.
    Thanks very much!

    Take a look at the link below. That writeup works for most of the Samsung dryers. Let me know if you have any questions along the way.

    How do I check the heating coil to see if it is broken?
    Looking at it inside the casing it looks as if it is all in one peice with not breaks.

    You will need to remove the element from the housing to do a better visual inspection of the element. The breaks in the coil are normally small and they can be hard to see. It helps to wiggle the coil to find the break in it. You can also use an ohm meter and the element should read about 9-10 ohms if it is good.
