What I do is pop the top with a putty knife.
I can then get to the screws holding the front on. I get the front off and remove the rear hatch. I release the belt and get the drum out. Then I remove the pan from the rear of the dryer.
I get the old element out of the pan and I clean out the fluff. I gently connect the new coil to each standoff being careful not to GAP the coils. Note the coils must be evenly placed or a hot spot will occur and the life of the element will be greatly reduced. Failure to remove lint/fluff from the unit will cause a hot spot also. Nothing to it. I have photos with part numbers and manual HERE

Fridgidare Dryer Model #GLER34IAS2/Serial #XD40311703: dryer runs for about an hour then kicks out the breaker.

check the main terminal block and make sure there is no shorted wires.There is also a chance that the heating element has grounded out on the cabinet frame. causing it to draw to much power yet still dry clothes

Changing heating element on a frigidaire dyer

If you dryer lint screen is located at the top of your dryer your heating element is going to located at the rear of your dryer. You will need to remove the back of the dryer to get to it. You will see a housing and the element is located in there. If you lint screen is located in the door when you open the door then your heating element is located in the front. This one is easier to get to. Simply remove the bottom panel under the door and you will see the heating element right at the front on the right hand side. Make sure you unplug the dryer before working on it. If you have any other questions feel free to ask and also please let me know if this was helpful for you. Good luck and glad to help.
