I'm trying to find out the part number for the heater coil for a dryer model number DDE5100RALWH.
When I try and search the only thing I can find is for model number DDE5100RALWW.
Are they the same?
I've replaced the elements on other dryers, however this one seems a bit more involved and its quite a bit more money. (That is if the WH and the WW are the same)
Any input would be helpful.
Thank you very muck

Two ways to go on this one: the cheap hard way or the easy more expensive way.  

 

Here's the cheap, hard way using the heating element restring kit:  http://www.repaircli...er=DDE5100RALWW

Here's the plug n' chug easy way using the pre-strung heat can:  http://www.repaircli...er=DDE5100RALWW

 

 

Heating-Element-Assembly-WE11X103-008421

 

 

It's good to do it with the re-string kit once because then you realize the value, economy, and reliability of the pre-string can.  

 

And, yes, they are the same heating elements for both models.

Thank you very much!
I will go with the easer option..
The last one I did for another friend was very easy, right on the top. This sounds more involved, how much has to disassembled to get to it?
I haven't checked the thermostat or the high safty yet, I just assumed it was the coil but I will check them first.
Are the easy to get to, to check them? Were can I located them on the dryer.
Sorry for all the questions??
Thanks again

have you checked the voltages at the Dryer Cord Terminal Strip ?

Yikes! That is way more than the last one I did..
I didn't see the locations of the t-stat or safety?
