I purchased a replacement heating element because my friend was going to do it . I have a stackable thin twin in a tight closet. He moved out the dryer and tested the fuse and found it needed replacing NOT the element. I told him I could not return the part so please install it anyway. He suggested that he could take it with him. He replaced the fuse and I had to asked him again to replace the part. He reluctantly did.. It was a mess behind the dryer but, because the hoses were short he would not disconnect them and move it out more to make room for me to get in with the vacuum and clean up the lint. BUT, he had time to stop working and take 3 other calls while he was he here. In summary, I would not recommend him to anyone.
