The good stuff

Easy install, quality part. Don't buy Chinese garbage, it costs more in the long run.

Sears is an amazing company. Our dryer is over 40.

Dryer over 40 years old and heating element went out. Never expected them to have a part to replace it and they did! Sent it within two days my husband put it in and it’s working

Not too difficult to install

After watching several You tube tutorials, I was able to take my dryer apart. The new element was pretty easy to install. The only trouble I had was with the top bracket of the heater element casing. I had no tool to tighten the screw down with.

Replacement Dryer Element

The replacement element for my Whirlpool dryer was an exact fit and a relatively simple fix. It arrived in 2 days and the price was vert reasonable. Thank you so much.

Replace a dryer heating element

Installation was straightforward. The hardest part was reinstalling the screw that went into the back of the bottom plate because there was limited room to get a wrench in the space.
