Question about Kenmore Dryers
If your model looks like it has two hinge brackets at the top of the back panel, you don't remove the back, you lift the top instead. Try running a thin blade screwdiver or puttyknife along the top crack above the door on the front of the dryer. You should encounter a release pin about three inches in from each edge. Push the pins in to release the top panel and it should swing up on the hinges. Now you can access the internals.

The thermal fuse is going to be located on the heating element housing. When you take off the front panel you will see your lint screen housing. You will need to remove that to get to the element housing. Once that's out of the way the thermal fuse should be right on top of the housing. It is small and has two small wires coming off of it. The wires should be different colors. Just don't get it mixed up with the thermostat. Just match it up with the new one that you have. It is held in place with two small screws. Let me know if you have any other questions or still can't find it, also let me know if this was helpful. Good luck and glad to help out.

The wheel has left handed threads. Use an impact wrench and an adjustable wrench to get it off or get a vice grips or pipe wrncha nd lock down the shaft then get a stick of wood or a hammer handle and shove it in between two fins at the 3 oclock position. Slam downwards on the wheel and it should pop loose.
