So I decided to replace my washer dryers heater element in the blower manifold Indesit IWDD7143SUK I see one screw holds it in place, well it snapped so half is still in the blower manifold, will the Heater element be okay to be held in place by Just putting it all back together Temporarily or can I use an alternative To hold it in place ?

Are you able to drill it out? Although obviously this could be tricky because you would need to ensure that the whole isn't made bigger. If it's a screw holding the element in place I would speculate that it is quite necessary. The element is likely to expand when it gets really hot. It could also move and shake around a lot during spinning. That would potentially damage it as it is usually filled with a ceramic or powder which could crack.
