I unplugged the appliance and turned off the gas supply. I removed the exhaust hose by loosening the clamp with a nutdriver. I removed the back panel screws with a nutdriver and removed the panel. I pulled the wire connectors off of the thermostat and thermal fuse. I removed both parts using a screwdriver. The thermostat terminals were slightly different, but the new style terminal ends came with the thermostat. I cut the old style terminal ends off of the old wiring with wire cutters. I stripped the wires and crimped new ends on the wires. I replaced the parts and wiring in the reverse order of removal. I replaced the back panel and exhaust hose. I turned on the gas supply and plugged in the dryer. I turned the dryer on to test it. It worked well. No problem!
