dryer quit working during operation and failed to restart
resistor is located on top back of dryer, so just removed metal plate on back with screwdriver. other parts are located above drum, and top of dryer is hinged, so lifted top of dryer by taking small screwdriver and wedged between front and top of dryer enough to get fingers underneath top and lifted. very simple. door switch and high limit switch could be viewed and removed at this point.

Ordered parts, replaced parts. Disassembled entire dryer and cleaned thoroughly. Lint pretty much gets everywhere in these things. Reassembled. Dryer is now functioning normally.

After reading 63% of the time it is the thermal fuse, I watched the video and followed the steps in the video. I was afraid I was going to drop something, but luckily did not. I called a repair man and he wanted $55 to come out. So for $30 parts and shipping, I did it myself. Thanks to this site!

Dryer quit during use
Watched the video to replace high limit switch. Very helpful. Replaced the high limit switch and fuse. Be sur to take the front of your dryer off (2 screws) to clean the lint collector. That's why it failed in the first place. Thank you

Followed the very informative instructions from repair video. Also take off front of dryer and clean out lint that has accumulated. Chances are that is why the upper limit fuse opened/ burned out.
