Kenmore 400 dryer


One last question re: parts. Are all parts created equal? Meaning, does it matter where I buy the part? Sears and a few local mom and pop shops have the same part in stock, but their prices vary from 45-65 bucks, with Sears being at the top of the range. Ebay has the part for about 25 bucks.

Sears = overpriced, same as some of te other places you will find. All the parts are the same, you may find tem cheaper on Amazon than repairclinc, but double check to make sure it is exact, if you purchase through amazon.com.

I would be cautious with ebay on electrical parts. Otherwise, I typically go with the best price and who can get it to me the fastest.

Kenmore 400 dryer


Thanks all for the advice. I ended up buying a heating element part from a local part store. I just finished installing it and the dryer is working great. Now back to the bathroom remodel. Thanks again all!
