First of all I learned how to open the top and front panel of the drier from the instructional video. I saw the inlet to the blower was completely blocked with a thick bunch of lint. This blockage seemed to have caused damage to the components of the high limit kit. I cleaned inside the drier of the lint and ordered the high limit kit. It arrived within two days. Replacing the thermal limiter mounted horizontally on top of the heater was easy. Figuring out how to disassemble the fuse mounted vertically on the side of the heater was difficult. Here the video was the great help. Replacing the fuse was easy also. After putting the front and top panels back together, I turned on the switch and the drier started and is still working fine.
