This was so easy, anyone can do it. Im a single mom, and me and my teenage daughter did it together. Just lift the lid of the dryer and you can see the big (high limit) fuse at the center of the top. Disconnected that, unscrewed the nuts holding in the heating coils, pulled those out, then replaced the smaller thermal fuse which was located half way down the casing of the coils, on the right. The connections can be re-connected on either side, so you dont have to worry about getting them mixed up. Unplug the wires, and plug back in on new part. Put the coils back in, put the screws back in place, then replace the high limit fuse the same way (same thing, doesnt matter what side the wires connect to). Very simple.
