Power off by removing plug from wall outlet. Remove two Phillips screws under lint screen filter door. (careful you don't drop them down the filter housing) Pry upper lid loose at both front corners and elevate and retain the lid vertically. Separate old 3 wire switch connector splice halves at upper right housing corner. Remove two Phillips screws at upper right corner of outer front doorway which hold switch. Install new switch with those two screws. Re-connect the connector splice halves; they are keyed for one direction. Close down lid. Plug in power cord.

Disconnect one of the two wires from the old Thermal Fuse and attach the wire to the new Thermal Fuse ensuring the wire is placed on the same end of the new Thermal Fuse as the old Thermal Fuse.

No heat, took a while to diagnose

Saw no heat, web said probably the fuse. Replaced the fuse. Nope. Second guess was the thermostat at the exhaust. Replaced that. Nope. Finally got to actively troubleshooting and isolated one of the thermostats near the heating element. Replaced that and everything is fine. So now I have a good spare fuse and thermostat for the next repair. There was one tool I wished I had, a socket small enough to open the back. I had to use pliers and that was a pain. Other than that the repair was almost trivial, just unplug the bad one and plug in the good one.

Went to your web site and found 40% of the time the thermal fuse is the problem. By using your site found how to locate fuse & test it. It took me 10 min to take out the old part & tested it to find it bad. I ordered the part which cost $10 & got it in 3 days. It took me 10 min to install it and the dryer is fine. This save me a big repair bill.
