How do you open the dryer to replace the element?
ANSWER Hi Jane. Remove power. Remove top. remove control panel assy. This will give access to the upper front panel screws. Remove them and bottom screws. Remove the front panel and mark the door switch wires for reinstalling. Once the front panel is removed, the heating element part # DC47-00019A, is in the rt. front area. If this is bad you will also need to replace the thermal fuse on the front of the heater housing part # 35001193. All thermostats need to ohm closed. The thermistor at the rt. end of the blower hsg. should read 10,000 ohms at room temperature. It is part # 35001191. Thank You.
