nestor, on the posted model, you want to drop the lower front panel. Take a puddy knife and push in on the clips on each side and it will pull off. Kill the power to the dryer. On the right you will see the heater housing. The housing will have a front deflector. You can remove that deflector by removing the screw on the bottom or simply just bend it down out of the way. Remove the 2 wires on the left that attach to the element itself. On the left side of the housing there will be a quarter inch screw that holds the element in place. Use a small socket set to get it off. Now the element will pull right out of the housing. Sometimes they are difficult to pull out but it will come out. Did you ohm out that element to make sure that was the culprit? Catriver.

It was very easy to do on my dryer. Kenmore 80. Removed 8-10 screws. Ordered a new element on Thursday afternoon from
http://www.pcappliancerepair.com/index.html, had new one Thursday morning at 9:00 am. Paid for shipping on 3-7 days got it less than 24 hours. Plus paid $10 less than Kenmore site.
