After watching the "how-to video" I removed the back of the dryer and went to town. The heating element was easily accessible and easily replaced. I had also bought the thermal cut off kit, which included a new high limit thermostat for the heating element and a thermal cut off fuse. I wasn't sure if they needed replacing, but bought it anyway just to cover my bases. The whole fix was very simple. However, I was not expecting to have to strip wires and crimp new connectors on. Thankfully the cut off kit had the connectors included. After getting the connections right, I replaced the thermostat and fuse and put the back of the dryer back on. Dryer works like new now!
