I unplugged the dryer from the power outlet and removed two screws from the back of the top cover and removed the cover. Then I laid the dryer down on its back for easy access to the screws on the bottom of the front side. I then removed two screws from the front bottom cover to clear the way for two more screws for the front main panel and door. Then I removed those two screws that attach the front panel and door to the dryer from the bottom of the dryer front. I then stood the dryer back up on its 4 pegs. I removed the top 4 screws connecting the control panel to the cross bar on top. Then I removed the two screws from inside the dryer accessing them from the top of the dryer, holding the front panel. With little and gentle force I pulled the front panel and door from the dryer housing, making sure not to loose the 4 snaps that come off with it. I removed two screws from the access panel to get access to the pulley in the lower back of the dryer. I loosened the tensioner by pushing it to the side and pulled the belt off the pulley. Next I needed to remove the drum which is connected by three screws in the center of the inside of the drum to a small plate on the outside that is attached to a ball that goes into a grease box. I then wiggled the drum out of the dryer. With some force I pushed the plate upwards to disengage it from the grease box and removed it. I unplugged the electrical wires connected to the thermostat and element. I then removed 4 screws from the back of the dryer that hold the heating element housing and removed the housing. I replaced the heating element and housing and the belt and put the dryer back in reverse order.

i watched the video that is furnished at parts select, it was very useful in doing this repair. i would strongly recommend watching this as i did install the ground bearing wrong to start with,and restringing the drum belt is something you have to feel as your installing it back in place so the video is useful for that as well. my repair was on a front load dryer made by Frigidaire,
