My distributor normally stocks them, listed

a popular element used in many Whirlpool, Kenmore and Kitchenaid
stack units, and

sure this is the right one for your dryer, or if you haven't

spend any money, please drop me an
email with your model number and I'll research it for you. And I'll
be happy to personally help you diagnose the problem.

this price, it's a
good idea to keep one of these on hand if you're at all handy and enjoy
