(I left the air duct attached to the door)7) Remove the back access panel to the motor8) Release the belt from the idler pulley and remove the belt.9) I removed the three screws in the center of the drum as I found it difficult to remove the drum from the bearing. Remove the drum.10) disconnect the coil terminals by first bending the tabs outward to allow you to be able to pull them off the block 11) remove the old coil12) carefully stretch the new coil so that it measures 48 inches (no more)13) Plug new coil into terminals and bend tabs to lock in place.14) Divide heater coil in half and install coil onto center support on the opposite side from where it connects to the block/back wall of dryer15) Install remaining coils onto supports.16) reinstall all parts in reverse order.

Repair requires nearly complete dis-assembly of the cabinet.Starting with the steel panel directly below the control panel, remove 2 screws. Next, remove the screws on the lower corners of the control panel. The control panel can drop down now and be removed from the cabinet. The door frame must be removed next. Start by disconnecting the door interlock connector from the wiring harness and then removing the screws on the top of the cabinet that hold the frame. remove the frame. The dryer tub is next and is removed by extracting the three screws in the back of the tub that bolt it to the bearing. The tub is now free and is pulled out of the front of the cabinet. Now comes the challenging part. The actual bearing is a sphere that is held in place by a spring loaded socket. The bearing must be removed in order to access and heater assembly. The bearing is removed by pushing it with considerable force upward toward the top of the cabinet. This strong force is necessary in order to overcome the force of the springs that hold the ball bearing in in place. I found removal of this bearing perplexing because no mention is mentioned anywhere of the amount of upward force that it takes to remove it and I was afraid of breaking it by forcing it. Now the heater assembly can be easily removed and replaced. This whole process is challenging and time consuming. At the same time you can feel a degree of satisfaction when you are done.
