Clothes Dryer Heating Elements – Find Replacement Element & How To Install

Find your dryer heating element. My dryer heating element went out. My clothes dryer does not heat and I have tested the elements. I have 2 different dryers (Samsung and Whirlpool) that both need heating element replacements. Our dryers get used multiple times a day. I went to home depot and lowes and did not find the elements I needed. I need to find the correct heating elements for my dryers to get them heating and drying again.
