Reply to Michael L....JA Appliance Repairman's Post: I know about the thermostats, but my problem is getting to them. This dryer does not have an access panel on the back like most dryers I have owned in my life. How do I get the dryer apart to get to the therostats.

HiCustomer

Here is a site that has pictures and instructions for disassembeling your unit.

Just scroll down and look for GE Dryers. It has instructions for both older and newer units.
