    Ok, did it. Thanks. To be more specific, unplug unit. Behind the machine are two plastic kick plates, remove to slide off the top. Once off, two top self tap metal screws and one screw behind panel wall, remove. Remove two detergent screws. Lift electrical panel and set on top of machine. Remove four top screws. Bottom drain has one screw in front, take out plastic cover and one screw in back. Take off rubber by opening door. With a screw driver, prey and lift up the brass spring ring and remove. Then the front panel should slide up and out. Be careful because electric wire is still connected, move to the side of unit. You will then be able to find the thermostat. Unplug and replace, you will need to use the same rubber bushing. Took me an hour, I’m not an appliance repair guy.

The thermistor should be located in the front of the machine just under the front side of the can slide the lid off the machine and get to control panel in order to remove the front panel.
it is not real hard to donjust a little time consuming there is also a spring that holds the door boot in place you need to remove it.
if some one is charging you that kind of money it is absolutly absurd
i hope this is some what helpfull
