Super easy repair. Just removed the back panel, took out the old heating element, plugged in the new one and put it back together. I had also replaced the element in a similar Whirlpool dryer in one of my rental properties a few months ago and it was just as easy. Between the two repairs I saved between $200 and $300 in repair labor. PartsSelect always has the parts I need in stock, ships quickly and their installation videos rock. I have also used them for repair parts on microwaves & refrigerators in the past. Excellent vendor. Highly recommended.

Got on line for video repair.Ordered the part through Whirlpool parts. They told me the part that was needed.Took dryer apart, kept parts together & labeled so I knew where to put back. Replaced the heating part & put everything back in place. Turned dryer on. Worked very well And I had lots of heat. Was so happy. I am a 70 year old widow. It took me a while because I didn't have proper tools but had a few that would work. It was really quite easy and the video on the repair was amazing well done. Thank You Whirlpool for all your excellent advice..Part came in very Quickly..

At first I thought that the dryer had seen its better days so I thought that it would buying time, at least $350.00 to get a replacement , but after that shock I was tempted to see what I could find on GOOGLE. There it was PARTSELECT giving me what was wrong and what to do and when I found out how easy it was to fix I immediately ordered the replacement element and it was delivered to my home two days earlier than expected. I had old element removed and new installed very quickly. You all were great with the remove and replacement info along with the fast shipping. Thanks again.

I was pretty sure it was the heating element. I watched two different Youtube videos. Once I cleaned up all of the trash and coins behind the dryer, it was just a matter of removing the screws from the back. I disconnected the wires, replaced the element, and reconnected everything and replaced all of the screws. It works perfectly again!

Drye quit heating

Removed the back panel with a 1/4" nut driver on a Ryobi impact driver. Used multimeter to check the thermal switches and the heating element. The element was broken. Went to the PartSelect web site and quickly found the part by using the model number and verified the right part by comparing the photos to the actual part. Placed an on-line order at approximately 1:00 pm and the part arrived at 2:00 pm the next day. Cleaned out the dryer vent and it works better than it has in a long time. Great web site and delivery from PartSelect and didn't have to run around town looking for the part.
