I started by removing the Washer from the utility room. Then I disconnected the vent and the power supply. Put the dryer on its front, (you may want to lay a blanket down to protect the finish.) Then using a nutdriver I removed the nuts which hold the back in place. Removed and replaced the defective element. Replaced the back with the nuts. I then up-righted the dryer, moved it back into position, reconnected the vent and the power supply and tried it out. It worked!
