I was able to make the repair by following the online video that parts select had posted. Within no time I had my dryer up and running. So easy even an 8 year old could have done it. I do recommend that you test every part with a multimeter to find out which part may be malfunctioning. Remember when testing with a mutimeter at its lowest setting in ohms,if a part you test has continuity the numbers on the meter will fluctuate. If a certain part does not have continuity the multimeter will remain at 0 or 1. What this basically means is that the part(heating element,thermostat,etc)is your problem because it has no continuity.
