Ordered 8am Monday, Part arrived Fed-Ex on Tuesday. Got home from work, opened the box. Remembered from the site helpful tips, saved screws (10) in a dish, marked electrical wires (L) (R) (B) pried the connection off old part, reinstalled and replaced the back cover. Hardest part was getting out from behind the dryer. Tight space. Amazingly easy I saved $200.00. I'll use this site & service again.

I removed the dryer to the outside to have more room to work. The dryer is easy to move about. I first watched the video and then I removed the part, recorded the serial number and ordered the part online. I received the part within two days. The work to replace the part, replace the back panel and place the dryer back inside and plug it in took about twenty minute.

Removed the back panel with a 1/4" nut driver on a Ryobi impact driver. Used multimeter to check the thermal switches and the heating element. The element was broken. Went to the PartSelect web site and quickly found the part by using the model number and verified the right part by comparing the photos to the actual part. Placed an on-line order at approximately 1:00 pm and the part arrived at 2:00 pm the next day. Cleaned out the dryer vent and it works better than it has in a long time. Great web site and delivery from PartSelect and didn't have to run around town looking for the part.

I took off all the back plates of dryer. (2 sets). Then I took off the heating element. It appeared to be in tact but had some blackening coloration on plate. Ordered new part, replaced the element (tested before I put the back plates back on) and it worked perfectly again. I was especially happy with Parts Select because I ordered the part on a Sunday night and it arrived on Tuesday at noon (regular shipping)!!

Just as your helpfull diagram of the dryer said, removed the rear panel,there it was, i recongnised it by the part you sent, pull it out of it's position, had a little truble figuring out the piece that fits on where the electric prongs are, after looking found out the piece was held on with a clip that goes inside the housing, Haaa. the rest was easy. Thanks,It works great. Dick
