Before starting, shut off power to the range with the circuit breaker or fuse, or unplug the service cord. The bake element is the lower element. Remove the wire oven shelves for easy access. Using a Philips#2 screwdriver, remove the two screws holding the old element to the rear of the oven. Gently pull the element straight out until you can see the connecting wires come through the holes. These wires are connected to the element with spade clips. Remove the clips by pulling them straight off the old element taking care that they do not fall back into the holes. Put the new element in place, connect the wires to the terminals, and slide the assembly into the holes. Replace the two screws, restore the power and you are done.

I will begin by saying that not only will I continue to order my parts from PartsSelect, but I also highly recommend this business. If you call Whirlpool be careful that they forward your call for parts to some preferred vendor, which a customer might assume is Whirlpool but it is not. PartsSelect is the same type of business, but with outstanding customer service. With regard to the drip pan, Whirlpool had not updated the part number for these as I found out when i called them. Whirlpool no longer uses the drip pans without the holes which is a serious problem since this could be hazardous to the owners of these ranges if you are forced to purchase the drip pans with the holes in them. That said, I ended up keeping my old drip pans, because if you spill grease under the new ones with the holes in them and since the range design with the fan built in on the top does not allow you to lift the top to clean under the pans, you could end up with a grease fire. This is not the fault of PartsSelect and they handled my order in a manner that I would give them a rating of exceptional for customer service.

Upon receiving the replacement part, I noted that the socket was held in place by simple expanding tabs. TURN OFF POWER TO THE OVEN. Using a right angle pick or similar tool, bend the tabs inward on the existing socket and remove. Disconnect the white, black and green wires. Note which tab is the green tab. Attach the wires to the new socket. Push the new socket into place, aligning the key bump on the socket with he slot in the oven wall opening. Install bulb and diffuser.

I have worked in maintenance field most of my adult life and all aspects and to change the oven door gasket was no challenge what so ever. It took longer to find my needle nose pliers to remove the old gasket clips and then re-install the new gasket. Maybe 10 minutes total

I ordered the part on a Monday morning and I had it on Tuesday. (I used regular shipping) Took out the oven racks and unscrewed the element. I pulled out the element about 4 inches and disconnected the wires, and removed the element. I made sure the wires were not burned and that the connectors looked good. They did. I simply connected the wires to the new element and screwed it back in place.

I had a power serge and it burned the Plug at the termial block and melted a few wire.

I think the installation instructions are fairly self explanatory. This is the second item I've ordered from Parts Select and I'm thrilled with their service. The items are always less expensive than other sites and they deliver what they promise. I would highly recommend them.
