Hi, I have an 11yr old 80 series elec. dryer and just fixed the same problem. On the heater element is a thermostat with 2 wires and above that about 14" is another piece with 2 wires. I had to replace the top one. They sell them together in a kit called Thermal cut off kit. Sears sell it for 25.49 look up part number 279816 or 3399848 again these numbers are for my dryer but you can look them up on the sears parts web site. If you have a sears service center near by they let me buy the parts to see which one it was and then return the ones I didn't need. I hope this helps.Good luck

Remove the panel from the rear of this drier. You will see the contained heating unit there with wires hooked to it.
First unhook these wires, noting the position they are pluged in so to put them back the same
Then you will see one screw at the top with a "bracket" holding the top of the elemant assembly on. Remove this screw and lift up on the element assembly and it will just fall out.
Reinstall the new assembly in the same manor as you removed the old one.
