I replaced the element using the video as a guide. Very easy install; however, it did not fix the problem. Turned out to be one of the cycling thermostats. I used the video for that also. A little more difficult because you have to strip and reattach a few wires. A good wire stripper/crimper tool will make this job easy. I would suggest buying the element, both thermostats and the fuse at once. This increases your chances of fixing the issue the first time. For around $100 you will have a worry free dryer for years to come. Beats a new dryer.
