Don't pay a repair service for this job when you can do it yourself. Pop the two panels off the back of the machine. The top one is where you'll unhook the old heating element. The bottom one (where the exhaust is) is where you'll need to unhook the broken heating element from it's connector. Place the new heating element's wires down through the back of the machine, plug the wires in (note - this is a 3-prong plug and it should only fit one way - the correct way) to the connector, and re-assemble.

Note: make sure that the exhaust pipe is secured back in its base. Getting the bottom panel back on is a little tricky, but you'll get in after a couple tries!
