Exactly what I needed to repair my dryer.
Edmundo S. Calderon
We were able to do it without having a repair man come, we thought we were going to have to buy a new dryer!

The element is a quality OEM part just like they claim.

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.

Works perfectly, my husband was able to install it with no problems and it cost a lot less than the elements at the local hardware store. We were able to do it without having a repair man come, we thought we were going to have to buy a new dryer!

I'm happy to report that I did indeed receive an authentic OEM Whirlpool heating element, just as described and pictured. Yes, it had the stamped FSP mark on it ("An abbreviation for Factory Specification Parts. Used by Whirlpool to differentiate genuine factory replacement parts from those of after market or universal replacement parts.") There are a number of off-brand knock-offs available elsewhere on Amazon, most at significantly lower prices, so make sure you know what you're getting. If you're getting a knock-off from THIS listing, you didn't get the right part.

The element was identical to the one taken from my Kenmore dryer (well, except this one did not have the open coil that caused the failure, of course!). The whole replacement process could not have been easier -- check YouTube for any of several very helpful videos on the procedure. Most of the work was in the guilty and long-overdue lint cleanup. The dryer is back in operation after minimal downtime, thanks to Amazon Prime 1-day shipping.

Fantastic OEM replacement heating element. Install was a breeze. Received it in two days with prime. Came in a box that was branded Whirlpool Corporation Factory Certified Parts. Installed it in my Whirlpool Dryer model LER8648PQ1. Feels sturdy. Heats like a champ. I went with this replacement part because I read a lot of negative reviews for other cheaper aftermarket elements. Figured I'd go with the OEM version. At $35, it's still a HUGE bargain compared to the $85 + shipping Whirlpool wants for this element. Popped it right in with no issues. The first 20-30 seconds of heat up gave a slight burning smell. This is NORMAL. I suggest running it for about five minutes with no clothes inside to burn it in. Afterwards I was drying all those nasty drawers I had accumulated while my element was broken. I will update this post every six months to keep everyone posted on how long this replacement lasts. That will be the real test of quality. I expect it to last quite a while. Great seller, price, and product. Thanks!
