First I made sure the breaker was shut off (220 volts at 50 amps will make short work of anyone). Then I removed the screws for the top of the dryer housing (this is a stacked washer&dryer unit). I was then able to access the limiter although it is a very tight squeeze. The limiter is right next to the connections for the heater element. The limiter is removed by disconnecting the two wires and removing the two screws holding the limiter in place. For both removal and installing it is essential to have a very short, magnetized phillips screwdriver.
