I removed back cover and electrical connection cover from back of dryer,.. about 8- 1/4" machine screws .

Then tagged the existing electrical connectors to the heating element, (lower right hand corner) with tape and labeled them with a marker. , for example 1,upper left, 2, lower left, 3 closest.
The labels do not matter as long as you rembember what they mean. Alternatiely you could take a digital photo of the original connection set up;

Removed the exiisting element ,2 screws and pulling out and down from the mounting.
From the old element remove the heat sensor,
by twisting the lock tab out.

Put the old heat sensor you just removed into the new element in the same position. sounds hard, but is really easy.

Put new element with old heat sensor back in same positiion as old element, then re-connect electrical connections as the were when you first started. The re-attache the back cover. Do not forget the cover which is over the cord power cord connection.
