On this model, the element is access through the front. It's under the dryer drum on the right side. You'll want to unplug the dryer and remove the screws below the lower front panel. The lower front panel will then pull off and then you have access to the element. Remove the metal shield on the front of the element canister as well as the screw coming in from the left side of the heating canister toward the front and then you can unplug the element and pull it straight forward and out of the heating canister for replacement.
