Dryer heater element intermittent.
First I unplugged the dryer. Then I removed the screws that hold the contol panel front on. Pulled up the control panel up and forward and layed it on the top of the dryer face down. (After pulling off the knob.) I removed one screw that holds the mounting plate in position. Then I removed another screw that holds the Switch onto the mount plate.
I pulled off the bad switch and put the new one in place. Put the screws back in. I had to cut about 2 inches of burnt wire back and replace the connector.
Hooked up the wires and put the control panel back in place. Put the screws in, plugged in the dryer and we are back in business.
