I'm so proud of myself. This Harry Homeowner is not too savvy, but this repair was easy. I watched a video on YouTube and followed along. The part was the least expensive though PS $36 delivered vs $45 to pick up . First disconnect the power. The nut driver was used to pull off the back panel and expose the heating unit. There was one hard to reach nut underneath holding on the heating coil. This I was able to get with a small wrench. Once removed, I slid out the broken part and replaced with the new part. I then tightened up that hard to reach nut first - make sure you do it tight or it would rattle. Next I put the back Panel on and reconnected the tube in the back which blows the air outside. It started right up and produced heat. I was a little concerned at first as I could "smell the heat" It must have just been some material on the coil - first time running it had to burn off. The odor was gone in 5 minutes. I could do it again in half the time if needed. Don't buy a new dryer or pay someone to fix. If I can do it so can you.
