3. Remove the old heating element: Disconnect the wires attached to the old element, located at the back of the dryer. With a screwdriver, unscrew the element from the back of the dryer.

4. Install the new heating element: Take the new element and connect the wires to each side. Secure the element by reattaching the bracket and screws.

5. Replace the access panel: Replace the access panel to the dryer, and make sure it is securely in place.

6. Test the new heating element: Turn on the dryer and use heat settings to test the new element. If the dryer heats up and works properly, the installation was a success.
