Simple DIY repair The replacement part fit easily, mounts with two screws. Make sure to unplug the dryer first, one of the leads stays “live”. Don’t throw the old one away until you get the part, you will have to transfer a overheat sensor (no instructions included). The part number is different from the original, and prices on the internet are all over the map. This was on the low end of the range, and the quality and match is as good as it can be.

Not authentic part, burned out quickly When I bought this I thought I was buying the authentic Whirlpool part, based on the “by Whirlpool” under the product name. It burned out again after 5 months, and I bought a replacement from a local shop. The one I received from Amazon was certainly NOT the genuine Whirlpool replacement. It did not have the proper stampings on the unit, and it appeared to have been made with thinner wire than the FSP (Whirlpool’s genuine replacement brand) element I purchased.
