My Repair & Advice
First off when your looking for Whirlpool parts, their tag with Model # is misleading. There is one number that you need further away from the model number out to the end.
I finally found the correct part and let me tell you....this site ships their parts fast! Kudos for that!
Install was SIMPLE. Pull stove out and unplug from outlet. Remove wire racks from oven. Use a phillips screw driver to remove the two securing screws at the back of the oven. They may be tight due to the fine threads into the metal back wall. After you get those out, pull the heating element out until the two wires come thru. They are inside the insulation. Unhook both of those keeping in mind which goes where. Remove the broken element and sit the new one in the oven. Install wires to the new element in the position they were removed. Push the wires back into the insulation and secure the element to the back wall of the oven using the two screws that were previously removed. Put the wire racks back in and plug back up. Push oven back into place. Turn oven on to approx 350 degrees and let it heat up for about 15 minutes. This will allow the new smell to burn off. Enjoy your oven from here!!!!!
