Has anyone changed the heating element on this unit ? If so what all is involved and or needed and how do you even access the heating element? It is a plate style element.

If you have the service manual and patience its not to bad. First couple are scary. Same as Fisher Paykel. You have to remove drawer, which requires removing drain hose, fill hose and certain electrical. Check down loads using model # and you will find service manual. Heater plate should come with both new seals.

I don't detach the drawer, but that is probably something that comes with experience... think of it as a big jigsaw puzzle, lots of inter-locking tabs.

The heating element failed on the bottom drawer. Is there a way to get to it from the top/inside the drawer without removing bottom drawer itself?

You have to remove it and turn it enough to access via the bottom of the drawer, and you need to remove to front panel as well. Look carefully for how each plastic tab is secured -- you'll end up breaking them if you don't release each one as you progress along.

You mean remove the drawer and set one corner on the floor and have the drawer on an.angle so can reach both underneath and inside?
