Prior to ordering parts i moved the dryer out and took the back off the dryer with a nutdriver. I noticed right a way the heating element was damaged and burnt up. I ordered the above parts and recieved them in two to three days. the parts on my dryer were easy to get to and I just matched up the parts i recieved and replaced them one at a time. It only took a nit driver to remove them and plug the wires back in to the new parts.
the dryer works like new again.
