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.

Easy to install

I googled a YouTube video to look up how to install the heating element and it was very easy. Taking off all the screws on the back panel of the dryer is what took the longest. Otherwise removing and replacing old heating element with the new element took minutes

Easy to install

The back comes off easy enough. The place where the heating element goes was easy to find. The parts snapped off and the others went together easily. It only took about 30 minutes in all to get everything back together. Now it works like a new dryer.

Super easy to install

Took longer to clean behind my dryer than install the element. My dryer drys like a brand new appliance. Ordering was super easy easy with the help of Riston. He took care of everything so quickly. Thank you!!
