Dryer stopped mid cycle with a load in it. First checked breaker, then door switch with an ohm meter and went to Partselect web site where they said it was most likely the high limit fuse. Checked the high limit fuse with an ohm meter and it was open so I ordered the kit. Installation was tight (I have big hands) and I found it necessary to remove the heating coil in order to line up the fuse mounting plate on the side heater box. Also had to remove the two wire clips above the heater to gain access. All in all, it was fairly easy and when done, the dryer started up.
