Gas dryer - video shows 2 back panels. My dryer has 1 panel. Taking out all screws but cannot take panel off. Seems that vent pipe is about 1.4-1/2 long. The gas pipe is elbow L shape pointing up and does not not allow me to pull back off. Also video of cut off #16 and video for #15 seem to show same area for both parts on the left side. Fuse part #7 appears to be on the left side but shows no video. Thanks in advance. don should I just saw a little of of the vent pipe or is there an easier way. thanks in advance.

ANSWER Hi Don. The 90° elbow on the gas pipe can be removed with 2 pipe wrenches. Just hold the supply tube to the inside of the dryer tight so you do not disturb the inner connections. Then you can remove the back panel. Then on the side of the blower wheel outer vent cover are the 2 thermostats mentioned. They are both in the kit part # W10480709. Thank you.
