I have a Kenmore Elite Electric dryer model 110.63932102.

The dryer has stopped drying. I have ordered a replacement heating element. How do I get into the cabinet to replace it?

I understand your issue you are having with your Dryer not drying properly. While you are waiting on an expert to answer your question, I was searching in the Manage My Life website and found some great links. I have attached the links below. You can also visit Sears Home Services website to set service with a Sears technician. Hope this helps!

Thank you for your question and I understand your concern.

Based on the model number provided there should be a access panel located below the dryer door. The heating element is located behind the panel on the right hand side.

I added a YouTube video showing how to remove the lower access panel as well as replacing a thermal fuse, however you will not need to replace the thermal fuse if the dryer will run.

I also added the wiring diagram if needed. In order for the heater to work, the heater relay must close in order to complete the L1 voltage supply to one terminal of the heater. The heater need 220 volts in order to heat. The heater relay needs 48 volts DC in order to close the relay.

NOTE: Disconnect the power cord from the power source before removing the lower access panel.


: I do not recommend checking and confirming voltage unless you have experience and feel safe and confident in doing so, otherwise I recommend calling a service technician to diagnose and repair your dryer.
