I used a putty knife to push in clips to lift the top of the dryer off to gain access to the thermal fuse and the high limit device. The thermal fuse was close to the top and easy to do. The high limit part was a little further down the back side of the dryer and a little harder to get to, but watching the video online helped a lot. The most important part was fixing the root cause of the dryer. Lint. I empty the lint tray every single time I dry a load, however, after removing the front panel, I found 12 years of lint packed into the channel. (You may want to do this BEFORE your dryer goes out.) After removing the lint and replacing the parts the dryer works like new again, and it only took about 30 minutes! I am a 57 year old woman so if I can do this anyone can. The best part was that I ordered my part on a Tuesday morning and it was delivered the very next day! Great service!
