Good dryer heating element - long transit time.

Perfect fit, exact match. I was a little surprised at the delivery time - shipped from California to the east coast. Took quite a while to get here.

Fit perfectly

Installed it myself. I wouldn't call it easy, but maybe I am not doing the best way. Took over an hour to open up the dryer, remove old element, install new and put panels back on the dryer.

Hopefully, it lasts longer than the aftermarket one I installed about 12 months ago.

Took a bit to install, Git 'er done.

Well, it was a bit of a challenge but I did it. Been in the dryer before so I knew pretty much what I was up against. Took a good hour just to replace this and the sensors. Satisfied that's it's done and it works like it should. Nothing like doing it yourself.

Perfect Replacement.

The heating element was a perfect replacement. Very easy to install. Heats better now than when it was new.

Not hard, lots of screws

Easy enough

I took off the back of the dryer, then the vent, the part was in bottom left corner. Disconnect Wires inside going to it and unscrew mounting screw, pull it out, unscrew metal casing, take part out and put new one in casing, remount etc. in reverse order.

Easy to take apart and replace.

While you have it apart clean (vacuum everywhere) and take apart and thoroughly vacuum out the dryer vent and pipes. Mine got super hot and took apart vent and system couldn't breath and dry properly. Mark the wires first.
