The housing I guess is what you call it. It's the part that the lint filter fit down in. That's what's worn out or melted.

Answer Tim, if one side of the right side of your filter is 1/4" thicker than the left side you will use filter part number 53-0918. If the filter has the same measurements on both sides use filter part number 53-0918. Thanks!
