Folks, I have to compliment you on one of the best integrated and intuitive websites I have ever encountered and my compliments to Steve for a job well done on the DIY video presentation. Impressive and it answers the question, "Can I handle this job or do I call a repairman."

Regarding the dryer heating element problem, after reviewing Steve's great video on element replacement, there was little doubt, that anyone with rudimentary familiarity with basic hand tools could handle the job and in the process, save $100 just by eliminating the repairman visit.

After removing the back of the dryer, the heating element was removed and the problem was obvious, as a coil heating wire had parted opening the heating element circuit.

The three parts I ordered, Heating Element, Thermal Cutoff, and High Limit Thermostat took less then one hour from start to finish and that included testing the dryer in all cycles. As I said before, great job, fast parts delivery and good prices, all complimented by a world class Website. Well-done folks. I'll be back when something else goes South on me here at home.
