Replacement Dryer Heater 279838
This replacement dryer heating element 279838, is used on Whirlpool, Roper, KitchenAid, Estate, some Maytag and Kenmore dryers.
Dryer elements work by using the resistance of their coils to generate heat. Heat is generated when the electrons passing through the coil create friction. That heat is then forced through the dryer drum and through the clothes via the dryer internal air ducts.
