I moved the dryer away from the wall, unpluged the power cord and removed the lower front cover. The cover is held in place by two screws in the lower corners. The thermal fuse and heater elements are immediately visible. One screw and two wires hold the fuse. Removed the wires and the screw and removed and replace the thermal fuse. I then removed the wires from the heater element noting the colors. That probably was not necessary as the connectors are of different size. A single screw holds the element housing and a slightly upward twisting motion freed the housing from the air tubing. The element could then be pushed out of the housing and the new element installed. Reinstall the housing, wires and front panel and the job is completed.
