    This is the second time I have replaced the heater element on my White Knight dryer (it's more than 15 years old) and I had already replaced the main thermostat, so this time, along with the new heater element, I thought I would replace the one on the exhaust, although the old one seemed to be okay. This one is extremely easy to replace, all you need to remove is the small panel at the bottom rear of the White Knight unit, where the vent pipe is housed, and it's a five-minute job. Although they don't fail as often as the main thermostat, it's good practice to replace them after really long service. My only reservation is that they're relatively expensive.

      Listing dimensions could result in a part being supplied that does not fit an appliance but has the same dimensions. For this reason we do not always provide the dimensions. The parts listed on our website are all model and serial number dependant (apart from universal parts). In order for us to locate the correct spares for your appliance we would need the model information requested. See
