I followed the excellent video instructions for dryer drive belt replacement. The tensioner proved to be a little tricky. I also had to fiddle the drum back into position. Now that I've actually done the repair, it would take half as long if doing it over.

Every thing worked just no heat. Ordered the heating element without taking it apart. It arrived in 2 days. It wasn't the heater. Ordered the Thermal Cut-Off kit. It also arrived within 2 days. Due to my recovery from back surgery my niegbor put the parts in both times. So two disassembly and two assemblys. Total time was about 30 min. for both. Used only a 1/4 in nutdriver both times. Works like a dream.

Remove switch by disassembling the wire connector. (pull apart) Then, connect the new switch assembly and align over the two screw holes on the dryer door frame with the switch trip arm in proper position. Insert the screws and tighten carefully.

Removed the old thermal cut-off and installed the new thermal cut-off. The thermastat was just a tad bit more difficult because I had an extra wire that i need to strip off and then crimp with a new connector. Once that was done I installed the new thermastat in the same spot as the old one.
