FIRST I REMOVED THE BACK MEDEL COVER FROM DRYER BY REMOVING 9 SCREWS-HOLDING BACK COVER ON-EASY. THEN TOOK MULTIMETER PUT ON OHMS TO TEST CYCLING THERMOSTAT WHICH SHOWED TO BE NO GOOD REPLACED IT- AND THEN SENSE I HAD ORDERED THE THERMAL CUT OFF KIT WHICH WAS NOT BAD I REPLACED IT ANYWAY BECAUSE I HAD THE BACK OFF THE DRYER ,ANYWAY REMOVED WIRES BEING SURE TO REMEMBER WHERE THE WIRES WENT BACK- HARDEST THING TO KEEP STRIGHT. BUT NOT TO DIFFICULT. PUT BACK COVER BACK ON DONE WITH THAT. ALSO PUT NEW MULTI RIB BELT ON- EASY- TAKE OFF TOP AND FRONT OF DRYER. RUNS&HEATS-LIKE NEW!!
