Our heating element ended up breaking from age and use. The repair was extremely easy: turn off breaker to oven, unscrew two screws holding in the heating element, pull it from the unit and detach the element from the electrical wiring. Once this is completed just perform the steps in reverse. The part arrived very quickly from PartSelect, arriving in just 2 days with the standard shipping. I am very pleased with my interaction with PartSelect.

Turn off power (at breaker panel). Pull out range from wall and unplug electrical cord from outlet. Remove retaining screw at each side of element. Slowly pull out element from back of oven to expose electrical connector. Use pliers to pull connector apart (do not pull on wire). With element disconnected, measure resistance between the two ends of the element. Found infinite resistance or open circuit. Ordered replacement part and measured new part to be 20 ohms. Installed new element by pushing on connectors to new element. Carefully push new element into oven back wall and secure with the 2 screws. Plug electrical connector into wall socket and push range back to the wall. Turn on breaker switch. Turn on oven to verify fix. Note: Confirm there is voltage on both legs of wall socket for 220 volts which will confirm the breaker at panel is functioning. This can be done before removal of element from the range.

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.

Oven element started getting hot spots and then just failed.

Simply remove the two screws in the back and carefully work the element out taking care not to pull the wires off. I left the oven door on which made access somewhat awkward reaching in. Remove wire clips and install new element in reverse. So easy even a caveman could do it.

bottom element sparked out and no longer heated

unplugged the oven from the 220 volt receptacle. Removed the wire shelves. Unscrewed the two screws holding element to rear of oven. (I didn't know at this point to pull the wires through from the back so I took the back panel of the oven off and unplugged the connectors from the rear). Measured the defective element, ordered, and two days later I reversed the process when the package arrived in the mail. . quite simple. I love it when I can fix something myself. And by fixing, I actually mean "replacing".
