Read the instructions followed by the video offered on Part Select. As the video indicated I began by opening the back of the dryer. Unfortunately because the video only offered direction using a older model I found that it was necessary to go through the front to get access to the thermal fuse and heater element.Once I had gained acess through the front (easy) everything went exactly as the video indicated. Although I replaced both the thermal fuse and the heater element the actual problem turned out to be the heater element. Part Select was a great resource in this repair and I am sure saved me considerable money not having to have appliance repair person come to my home. Very Pleased.
