Very simple took back off dryer looked over and seen two screws that hold heating element,took screws off and slid it out. You can tell it was in need of new element cause one of the coils was broke in half. Since i had dryer apart you should take apart the lint chamber which was simple and glad i did cause it was full of lint which could be why heating element went bad. Now i know i should atleast take back off dryer once or twice a year to make sure its clear of all lint. Put all back together and plugged back in and now runs like a new one.
