Began by unplugging power then removed the two screws from bottom access panel removed panel. Used a putty knife to push the release clips hold the top panel removed the two screws holding the front door and housing noted the three wires for the door switch removed those. Released the tension on the belt at the idler pulley lifted the drum assembly from the dryer. Tested the high limit fuse assembly with a volt ohm meter found no continuity indicating the fuse was blown. After reading the many other reviews I also test the high limit thermostat and found that it was not working as it should order bout parts and replaced all in reverse order plugged the unit back in and now have a working dryer.
