    The whirlpool heating element was the exact one that I purchase. We install it and My dryer is working and drying my clothes...stressing out taking my clothes to the laundry.
    The price was definitely in my range. Thank You

    Great product and fast delivery

    The dryer heating element for my dryer was very easy to install and I received it within 2 days when choosing the 2-3 day delivery. This was very helpful since I was out a dryer for a week and a half. Would purchase from this site again.

    I ordered this part on Tuesday and it came on Saturday. Mama is happy. I figure we saved a couple hundred bucks replacing ourselves. Thanks for the fast service!

    So far so good and will buy another just in case

    Posted by scottr on 29th Feb 2016

    Part was delivered ahead of expected date.

    Part was nearly a clone of the OEM part and installed with ease.

    I will buy another to keep on the shelf next to the spare hot water heater element and heat pump caps.

    Great service

    My Heating Element went out in my dryer and i was stressing out!! My husband and I have very busy schedules and not having a working dryer is out of the question! A coworker told me what was wrong and I ordered from here. Not only was it shipped out super quick but received 4 days faster than expected. I'm not too handy but even I could put this part on my dryer myself and feel like Little Miss Fix It! :)
