Thank you for your question.

I should be able to help you with the replacement of the element. I have included a set of illustrated instructions (See below). These should step you through the process of accessing the element. Please make sure to unplug the dryer before you start the repair. I also recommend wearing glove because some of the panels are sharp.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.
