First you need to raise the top in order to get to the parts. Then the door is removed, I did this in order to thouroughly clean the lint build up in the duct work. Then the high limit thermostat is removed in the back top part of the dryer, just above the heater. Then the heating element is removed by removing one long screw that holds the heater and the fused thermostat. Once all these parts are removed and the wires disconnected you simply reverse the process with the new parts. Put it all back together and everything works fine. Part Select.com also was helpful in diagnosing the cause of the problem. Thanks.
