After unplugging the dryer, I removed the 8 screws on the back of the dryer, then removed the large metal plate covering the heating element. I then removed the two connectors from the element. I had to remove what I think is the thermostat from the old element, and then put it on the new one. I then reversed all previous steps. Lo and behold ... the dryer was heating again! I could not have done this without PartSelect.com. Their site, images, part info and user repair stories all helped in making me (a very un-handy guy) a successful repair man ,,, and helped me save over $150!
