disconnected the dryer; cleaned the duct. I reconnected everything and started it up again and within seconds tripped the breaker.Decided probably the thermal limiter was faulty, so ordered new one from you. After it arrived I watched video, then removed the top and front, pulled drum to give me some workroom, replaced the limiter, reassembled in reverse order.I then reset the breaker, plugged the dryer in. Runs perfect.The drum was a challenge - so I used a wooden wedge to support from the front and opened the 12 by 12 rear port to access and reset the pulley cable assembly.
