defroster element and or thermostat was not working.
removed the shelves in the freezer compartment and removed the two screws holding the back panel on over the coils and simply removed the male wire plug from the female plug and pulled the wires for the heating element down thru the coils and released the spring clip holding the element in place and removed, and installed the new element and thermostat in reverse order. Very simple.

Not defrosting the coils warming up the compartments
Removed housing on the freezer side and removed the assembly by removing the two bottom clips and then unclipping the wire harness, two prong, and replaced as remvoved. Power was off of course. Watched for 24 hours and recovered housing and its been working great.

Cannot contact via instruction given by Parts Select so they can answer question below.
Recently I ordered a defroster element from PartSelect Number PS11743275 Manufacturer Part Number WP61006116 for my Maytag Refrigerator/Freezer Model MSD2354ARW. The part received has two numbers on the bag containing the part #61006198 and WP61006198. It looks similar to the picture but the wire connection has three sockets while the element in my freezer has two. Could I have received an incorrect part?

Where do I go from here?

Thanks,
