Unplug the unit. Tip the machine to the rear, and put a block under the front to gain access the bottom of the front panel. the Remove the 2 screws on the lower front panel, and remove the panel. Remove the 2 screws holding the door assembly. This assembly has clips that hold it on top, so pull out on the bottom, and pull down. Be sure to mark the wires on the door switch. Remove plastic blower box assembly. This is fastened from inside the drum with 3 phillips screws. The heating element and thermal fuse are located in the left rear corner of the machine. Remove 2 screws holding assembly, and pull it out to the front of the machine...the wires are long enough to allow this. The thermal fuse is screwed right to the element. Just lay the elements side by side, and transfer the wires from 1 to the other. Put everything back together in reverse order. My dryer now works like new. This is an easy job for an average handyman.
