Whirlpool/Kenmore 279843 Dryer Element (3000 watt)
(Sorry, my inventory of these is gone as of 2-21-14)

My distributor normally stocks them, listed HERE

Whirlpool 279843 dryer element, 3000 watt

Here's a brand-new heating element for Whirlpool-built dryers, the somewhat unusual 3000W/240V element used mainly in the 'Thin Twin' stack units, part #279843.


This a popular element used in many Whirlpool, Kenmore and Kitchenaid stack units, and it's simple to replace. 

But if you're not sure this is the right one for your dryer, or if you haven't *proven* it's definitely the element that's the problem, before you 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.

(There are several things that can cause a 'no heat' or poorly working dryer in addition to a bad heating element. See this article for more help on that.)

At this price, it's a good idea to keep one of these on hand if you're at all handy and enjoy the affections of an admiring spouse (and clean laundry) <grin>. Like oven bake elements, it seems like these always burn out on a weekend or holiday when you need them the most!


So save yourself some money and a trip to the parts store. Stay right there in your chair and I'll have the mailman bring it right to your door in 2-3 days, via Priority Mail, FREE!

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me

Thank You!
