Front panel came off with two philips head screws.
First thermostat was behind a 2 screw sheet metal barrier.
Second was far right and slightly cramped, but a right angle
rachet drive and phillips head bit did the trick.
The wire colors were an exact match to the OEM thermostats.
So far the dryer is running shorter, and there is almost no water in the vent tube or the face of the dryer door opening. A cheap fix for an old reliable dryer.
Whle you're in the guts, always vacuum out all the lint and dust on all parts. Stupid to leave it dirty and run less efficient.
