The filter is a water filter?

I think you would be risking a fire if you added too much heat without increasing the airflow.

If you want to get laundry done faster, just go to the laundromat. A commercial dryer will get the job done in 25 minutes or less.

But, if you wanted to have some fun, just add a webasto heater to your splendide. Make sure you video the results for us.
I agree on the more airflow,for sure,fact is it probably needs more as is.
Going to a laundry in Alaska is not cheap,$10 per load can get spendy..

It really is more of a debris filter to keep things from getting into the water pump impeller. The old one had a waffle filter that you unscrew out the front of the washer. The new one has a different design and will let lint through but would stop a key or coin from blocking the impeller. It is the white housing on the left in this picture behind the little door on the bottom right of the washer when it is installed.

You could get one of those chili roasters from New Mexico and probably do a good job drying your clothes quick. Have you seen the movie Idiocracy? In the future they have shirts and stuff that you just pull off a roll like a paper towel. Single use clothes

And the chili roaster would make quick work of cooking hot dogs too!

Since you have your dryer apart,where does the intake air for the dryer come into the machine?

Sadly, I only took the bottom off. The air intake appears to be up above the tub. Water to the bottom, air on the top. But here are the diagrams. Models have some small differences, but are mostly the same.

Default Heating Element

How about this:
220 volt element
120 volt, 2 pole 30 amp contactor
120 volt from the old element to coil
220 to line
220 to new element

I think the fan is too small too,the fan is a tiny thing,i suspect is small so its quiet and so it fits in a small space,next time i have a splendied apart i will be checking it out before scrapping it.
