Start on page 13. The backs of these units do not come off. Just the top and front.

Reply to The Home Smithy's Post: so how would we replace the fuse? no heat is gettng to the dryer ...so we think it is the fuse or the heating element and we can not get to it.

i am going to accept this so you can get paid..but we have to leave and i want to see what your answer is for this question.
Expert:  The Home Smithy replied 9 years ago.

Just follow the directions in the manual. They are very clear, and comprehensive. If you run into a problem just post it here and I'll walk you through it.

To get to the heating elements you will have to remove the tub. Once you get into it you will see that it really is not all that complicated to do.

Dont worry I will be here till that thing runs again. Im online every day. Some days all day depending on work. Lately that has been pretty sparse around here.
