This dryer heating element kit is 240 volts and 4750 watts. The kit comes with a high limit thermostat of L248-80. The function of the heating element is to produce the heat that allows you to dry your clothing during your dryer cycle.

Before you begin your repair, make sure to disconnect the power from the dryer. The tools you will need for this repair include a putty knife, a quarter-inch nut driver, and a pair of needle nose pliers.
This part works with the following brands: Whirlpool, Admiral, Estate, Inglis, Kenmore, KitchenAid, Roper, Maytag, Crosley, Jenn-Air, Hardwick, Magic Chef, Amana, Caloric & Glenwood.
This part fixes the following symptoms:
Checked the voltage to the high limit switch. Found that the element was bad. Ordered the part from partselect.com. and received the part in two days. Unplugged the unit, pulled the lid on the dryer, used the 5/16" nutdriver, removed 3 or 4 screws, pulled out the old and installed the new. Saved a $100.00 service call from the repair man! Novice in home improvement can do this. Thank you Partselect!!!

Had to lift the top with a screw driver. Unplugged dryer. Removed 4 different wires from heating element. Unscrewed with socket wrench screws that are small becareful not to drop. Replaced with new heating element and there you go. I had to reset at my fuse box as well. I was overjoyed that I didn't have to go buy a new dryer so close to the Holidays!! Hopefully it will work for another 10 years. Thanks!!
It took longer to gather the tools vs changing the part. I was unsure how to start. Once I got started it was very easy it took 5 minutes.
Tilt dryer top. Inspect damaged part(s). In my case it was the high-limit thermostat; but since the dryer is old, I ordered the heating element kit. The thermostat is included. Disconnect wires from thermostat and remove. Disconnect wires from element and remove. Carefully install new element and reconnect wires. Same for thermostat. Dryer works fine. Also, delivery time was one day. Thank you Partselect.
Daughter and I lifted top of dryer, carefully removed old element and thermostat, watching as we went how the old ones came out, and replaced with new one! Dryer working just fine!
I used a butter knife to push the spring clips that hold the top down, this was the hardest part of the repair. Once the top was open it took about 20 minutes to pull out the old part and replace with the new, including running the dryer on high for a few minutes to get rid of the new element smell. Always unplug before attempting any electrical work.
Replaced thermocouple and heating element, clean build up dust lint inside as well. Actual repair takes only removal of 2 screws. Cleaning inside takes longer.
It was very simple thanks to your notes on lineI would use your site for ordering any other needs I have. Thank You Robert

MY SON Chris unpluged the dryer.than opened the top of the dryer and used a screw driver to unscrew the thermo cuppler and moved it over so he could get to the heating element .he than used a screw driver to take out the screws holding on the old heating element and than he put on the new one.he than put all the screws back in the thermo coupler and closed down the top of the dryer. he than pluged the dryer back up and turned on the dryer .it took about 1 hour to do it all. and i'm proud to say it works wonderfully.
Opened up the top of the dryer. Had to use the internet to find the broken part since the last time I replaced a heating element it was at the bottom. This one was at the top behind the drum. Disconnected three screws holding the old element in place and the wiring. Pulled the old element and put the new one in replacing the wiring and the screws.
Contrary to instructions that I found on the web, the element is not accessed through the back. Pop the top of the dryer up and the element is visible in the top of the back . Pretty easy job.
