Everything wears out with age. This is the second element I have replaced on this dryer. The time is fast approaching the dryer too will go the way side. For now, though, we just keep her going as best we can. Simple installation using simple tools. Safety first, unplug the unit. Make comfortable room to work on it from behind. Remove the back panel, push the top off and unscrew the retainer. Remove the bottom retainer screw and the two wires on the element itself. All you have to do now is lift the element case off the bottom bracket, remove the old element and replace with the new in reverse order. Viola! Be cautious of your new drying times. It seems a fresh element brings new life to drying your clothes. We have found it has been cut by more than a third time. As a side note; bring the shop vac out to suck away all the lint that accumulates inside. Fire hazard for one, deterant to life of machine also. You don't have to be an electrical genius either. If it comes down to that type of repair....Better call a repairman! =0)
