    Thanks to this business, NO need to run out & get new dryer. Ours is nearly 20 years old & have had to replace thermostat twice - but that is so much cheaper and satisfying than having to replace it!

  • works!

    My dryer has never worked this good before and I bought it new. Only thing with it is the two replacement screws dont fit the holes in the new heating element. No problem just find two that do.
