I spent most of an afternoon taking the entire dryer apart before realizing that all I needed to do was take off the lower front cover by removing two screws and then the plastic exhaust housing to access the heating element. Removing two screws allowed me to remove the element. I then switched the thermal fuses and wires from the existing element to the new one and slipped it back in place from the front , replaced the screws and things were ready to go. All the time I spent taking the dryer apart however were not wasted as it allowed me to clean everything up, straighten out the seals at the ends of the dryer tub and find a bit of loose change.
