Our dryer has quite high ratings online that just didn't match our experience. We wondered for a long time if we had gotten a lemon. We generally had to dry loads multiple times. Finally the heating element went out. We purchased this. The box is printed as being a whirlpool factory certified part (not just stamped). What has really gotten our attention is that now our dryer is acting more like other reviewers have claimed that it should have in the first place. So far this part has turned our lemon into lemonade. Our dryer finally works the way it was supposed to.

Direct replacement and easy to install. The heating wire gauge size is considerably larger and less likely to burn out than other models which should translate to a longer working life for the heater and justifying the slightly higher cost.

First off, this is an initial review. I will certainly update it if this part does not last. The element is a quality OEM part just like they claim. It takes longer to reinstall the rear panel than it does to change out the element. I replaced the high level thermostat as well since I had the dryer apart. I was torn between the element that is half the cost of this one just as you may be. I am just like most others on here, looking for the deal. However, a "deal" is not always about how cheap something is. If you are repairing an appliance yourself you are already saving a lot of money! My neighbor said he paid over $200 to have the element replaced on his dryer. Low prices on certain items make me question their quality. This is one of those items. I chose this item due to the reviews of the less expensive element stating of it's failure within months. I would be angry with myself if I purchased the cheap one and had to replace it (with this part) in six months.

Based on some of the other reviews of the cheaper one on here having thin wiring and burning out very quickly I opted to pay a little more for the OEM model. Not disappointed as the coiled wire seems as thick or thinker than the factory one I pulled out so I'm sure it will last for as many years as the first one vs 6 months based on the reviews of some of the cheaper ones on here. Easy to replace and fit perfect.
