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.

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!!

Easy to install!

There were no directions, and the set up on the youtube video was a little different than what I actually had, I called my brother and he was able to help me figure it out. If I ever have to replace another heating element, I'll know exactly what to do.
