First I read several of these stories on the website and then decided to give the repair job a try.
I layed the dryer on it's side and removed the two screws located under the bottom edge of the front panel. The bottom of the front panel swung out and with a slight upward movement I was able to remove it. Next I disconnected the door switch and laid the front panel down out of the way. The heating element was easily removed by removing two more screws and disconnecting two wires.
Had to remove the high temperature thermostat which is held on the side of the heating unit by 2 screws. Needed this for the new unit. I installed the new heating element assembly, reconnected the two wires, and cleaned the unit with a shop vac. After cleaning, I put the front panel back into position, reconnected the two wires to the door switch, and put the front panel back on the dryer. The last step was to install the two retaining screws located on the bottom edge of the front panel and upright the dryer. The job was completed in less than an hour thanks information I read on your website. My compliments to the folks at PartSelect for excellent service in not only delivering the parts on time but for providing the information that made the job a success.
