Simple,I unplugged the dryer and took off the panel located below the dryer door. To do that unscrewed 2 small screws on the underside of the panel. Once that was off I used a flashlight to locate the heating element which was in the rear of my Amana. Using a socket attached to a screw driver I turned 4 screws out of the element and it was free. I brought the element closer and compared it with the new element and made note of the wire pattern. I plugged in the new wires I received in the box into the new unit and then one by one unhooked the wire leads coming out of the dryer. I reversed the above there it was...maybe 30 minutes!
