    Dryer ran, but without heat.
    offered a youtube video for the repair. My dryer looked a little different, but the parts were the same. When I ordered a thermostat button, I noticed a wire kit, too. Both parts showed to be 95% most common repairs for problem. Sure enough, I needed BOTH parts. I had a burnt wire, and the thermostat button adjacent to the burnt wire was out, too. Thanks for the info; you saved me a lot of time by providing this information! I just clipped the burnt wire, removed 1/2" of casing and joined the new wire end to the rest of the wire with the wire nut provided. The button was attached with two hex-head screws, so I removed them with the nut driver, removed the wires and plugged them into the new part and screwed it back in place. Plugged the dryer back in and had heat again!

    My dryer ran but with no heat.
    First, remove the front panel just below the door. To do this, tip the dryer back a little. You can then see how the two clips on the top and the two on the bottom work. Now remove the forwardmost tubing by removing the two screw holding it in place. Next, remove the panel in front of the housing holding the heating element, high temperature fuse, and the thermal cut-off(Three of the four components that may be your problem. All of these can be tested with a multimeter on ohms. As can your fourth item located on the housing behind the heating tube previously removed. This item is your high temperature thermostat. If there is infinite resistance, the part is bad.). Disconnect the six wires connected to the components inside the heating element. Now, remove the housing by twisting right 45 degrees and then lifting up and to the right. From this point the removal and replacement is obvious. Now when I removed my housing, one of my wire ends was corroded and broke, so I needed to buy the above end and replace it. The end comes with instructions.
