Turned off the breaker at the panel (important!) unscrewed two nut headed screws pulled the element out to reveal the wires. Unplugged the wires making sure they do not pull back into the holes. Plug the wires into the new element push the poles into the holes and reattach the nut screws. Make sure the legs are holding the element off the bottom. Turn the breaker back on, and test.
