HELP PLEASE.

I bought a Heating element for a GE. dryer. It is a WE11X10007. It has three (3) terminal, one of them is common for the two heating elements and it is for a 240 VAC. How does it work? . From the house wiring for 240V AC, one Blak= hot; one Red= hot; one White =neutral and one green = grownd, which cable is connected to de common terminal (A), which one to the other terminals, B and C?. Should it be: White to common terminal A; Black to terminal B; Red to terminal C?. Thank you very much for your help, I want to relax thinking about it. Luis Mendoza.

The heating element only gets connected to 240 volt. No neutral and no ground. One of the two hot legs (wires) goes to the common terminal and the other leg (wire) will connect to both of the other terminals via a three position switch. Low- sends 240 volts to the smaller element. Med- sends 240 volt to the larger element. High- sends 240 volt to both elements

If you have the correct element for your dryer, then just transfer all the thermostats/fuses from the old element to the new one, and transfer wires to the appropriate terminals. If it isn't obvious where the wires go, then you probably have the wrong element.
Keep in mind that GE sometimes gives two options for elements, either a re-string kit or a complete element. The re-string kit requires you to remove the broken element wire from the old housing, and replace it with the wire in the kit. It can take some skill to ease the wire into place, so sometimes it is easier to spring for the complete element instead.
Alway unplug your dryer during repairs. Always test a component with a meter first to make sure it is really broken, before going to buy the part. Always buy your parts either by model number on the dryer, or part number on the part itself.
