My son in law installed the new part, I didn't watch him so not sure how he did it, think he removed 6 screws, took the front panel off, installed the new part , took less than 15 minutes, now, dryer working again! Sure saved me money, of course, the dryer might die tomorrow from old age but today, working like a charm.
