While the dryer was on, we had a power surge. The dryer stop producing heat. We didn't know if it was a fuse or heating element, so we order both.

While online, I found a video on how to fix both. When I took the back off I was able to understand after watching video. The wires were hard to pull off, and scared that I would break them. I kept pulling and I was able to do it.YEA! I end up replacing them both, just to be safe. I am so excited that I could fix myself. I posted it on my facebook. I would recommend this sight to everyone. Thank you, Deb. and Kelley
