PartSelect.com got my order here within 48 hours... they're awesome!!
The new heater element also comes with a new electronic control unit that the instructions say must be replaced at the same time. Apparently this unit is a huge upgrade since it greatly increases the drying and water temperatures. Very easy installation for both. The dispenser unit was also redesigned and is supposed to be more efficieint. It too was easy to install. The "CNTRL-ELEC" I mistakenly ordered and did not install and returned to Parts Select. I misread the scematic. It seems you have to order the entire control panel which include the CNTRL-ELEC board and the eletronic control for the heating element, all just to replace the labeled display buttons...cost, $306. Instead, I just photocopied a diagram of the display from the owner's manual and taped it to top of the door next to the controls. The machine works better than new.
