279838 Whirlpool Dryer Heating Element Replacement
Repair Skill Level:
2 Screwdrivers

Dryers pull air from outside the unit and blow it through a coiled wire heating element into the dryer drum. As the drum spins, hot air regulated by a thermostat passes over, under, and around wet clothes to dry them. A dryer that tumbles the clothes while blowing cool air could have a damaged heating element that needs replacing. Most dryer elements are very easy to change out.

When this part fails, you may experience:No Heat

How to test: Measure for continuity*, and replace if open.

*A continuity test is the checking of an electric circuit to see if current flows (that it is in fact a complete circuit). If electron flow is inhibited by broken conductors, damaged components, or excessive resistance, the circuit is "open". A multimeter is typically used to determine electrical continuity.

  1. Exactly what I ordered!

    Posted by Debbie H on 19th Dec 2017

    The heating element was exactly the part I ordered. It arrived in good packaging and had no damage. Although it did not fix my problem, which was my diagnosis, I have ordered another part from Thrifty Appliance Parts.

  2. Excellent

    Posted by Anna on 12th Aug 2016

    Thrifty had our replacement heating element to us faster 3 days before we expected it and at half the cost of other websites. Dryer now works great...unfortunately there's no time to celebrate our DIY achievement as there are piles of laundry to tackle, sigh.

  3. Awesome

    Posted by Tina Wasson on 30th Jun 2016

    It was right part for our dryer and It was in before it said it would be

  4. Exact part I needed

    Posted by Kathleen on 13th May 2016

    I got the exact part I needed at the price that I can afford. It got here in a timely manner. I was able to install it in just a few minutes and my dryer is working great again. Thank you!

  5. Heating element

    Posted by Marlene on 22nd Apr 2016

    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

  6. Great price great products

    Posted by gloria coen on 15th Apr 2016

    This place is awesome and the prices don't broke the bank.

  7. Great product and fast delivery

    Posted by Unknown on 13th Apr 2016

    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.

  8. Great product at a great price!

    Posted by Sean on 2nd Apr 2016

    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!

  9. 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

  10. Very fast shipping

    Posted by Amanda on 11th Feb 2016

    Part came in very quickly! My husband was impressed I fixed the dryer while he was at work.
