The repair was kind of on the involved side. To get to the heater coils you have to remove the drum from the dryer. Even though the Hotpoint was well engineered, it still took some skill to take apart and put back together. After removal you then have to string the coils over the insulators making sure not to pull the coils to far apart or leave them to close together leaving a hot spot. The restring kit comes with installation instructions, they helped somewhat. Bottom line I got it back together and the dryer is working fine. The part that I ordered came in one day and was in a very well packed container. Thanks PartSelect!
