I removed the back cover’ screws, and replace the heating element.
I did learn that my dryer could be a fire hazard, if I had turn on a fan in the basement.
Behind the dryer and inside of it there was lots of lint.
I cleaned lint inside the dryer that accumulated for 5 ½ years.

Took the back off of the dryer; took off screws holding the heating element in place; disconnected the wiring (which is very self explanatory-just use color coding) and removed old heating element. Then replaced with new element by connecting the wiring; put screws back in that holds the element in place then put back dryer cover on.

Unplug and lay dryer on its front. Take off entire back panel using nutdriver. Unplug and test all fuses and wiring for resistance. Element had a broken coil. Remove two screws and slide down element. Remove the black plastic and metal piece with wire connections from side of old element - this piece is not included with new part. Install that piece on new element. Put everything back together. Takes 20 minutes.

I decided to repair it myself, and after ordering the part from partselect.com, and getting it very quickly I installed the heating element and, viola, the dryer works great again. All the info necessary for simple repairs is available online for most major applainces, and if you a little basic mechanical know-how, it isn't that hard. I just wish I would have just ordered the part from partselect.com right away!

Hardest part was moving the machine from small washroom to a spot where I could work on it. Very easy installation if you watch the video. The new heating element slides right in and then just re attach the wiring. Good idea also to clean out the exhaust pipe vents while it is available.
