Now Heats Like A Brand New Dryer!!!

My dryer has been heating like a brand new dryer. Great part versus the last one that I purchased from Amazon(only lasted 91 days)....You can really tell the difference in quality when looking at the craftsmanship of the element. Will purchase from here again if needed for another appliance.

Easy to install

Super easy to install. Save yourself time and buy a factory part. I research a lot on this dyer element, seems like that aftermarket ones only last a couple of months.
