1st. i removed the two screws that holds the cover.2nd. -vacumn (most time used)around to find the screws that hold the metal heat tube and shield. 3 rd. removing the screws tip the front of the tube up and pull out from the back.my element was clipped in place. I then pulled the element out and replaced the thermostat (tip: replace all t'stats around the heat element). it is as simple as reading the repair stories
Took the back off the dryer. Found heating element unhooked the electrical connectors to the element,the high temp thermostat and the fuse backup. Opened the front kick plate, took the casing with element, ht thermostat and fuse bu out. Changed all three parts and reinstalled them. Turned on dryer and had heat. Been working great ever since.
