    Bought this item back in 2010 and its still going strong 5 years later. Was easy to fit and relatively cheap (and a lot cheaper than buy a new dryer).
  • The site video was very helpful

    Very pleased. - I found the video inspired me to have a go and repair my tumble dryer myself. - The replacement E spares element arrived in good time, was well packaged and looked exactly the same as the original item. After taking only 20 minutes to fit the part I now have a working tumble dryer. Thanks e spares - will use again.

    The website was superb! I found my spare in no time, ordered it, paid for it and it was delivered on time. I fitted the part myself and we now have a fully functional tumble drier. After experiencing some dreadful internet sites and services it is a real PLEASURE to find such an efficient website and delivery service. Thanks.

  • Q My Whirlpool condenser dryer AWZ650 is failing to heat up in order to dry clothes, it seems to be working fine apart from this, can you advise me which part I require to replace the element 1 Answer

      It is most likely the element if every other function works correctly. This needs to be fitted by a qualified engineer. The element  for your model is ES185799.

    i have recently changed thermostats on whirlpool dryer awz541 but still overheating could it now be heating element

    By raz - edinburgh - 04 October 2010

    • A
      Hi Raz, you were right to change the thermostats first, they are the most likely cause of an overheating dryer. It could be the element which is damaged - perhaps an electrical fault. If you smell electrical burning, then switch off straight away and don't use - call an engineer or consider a new dryer. When it's an electrical fault like that it is dangerous for an unqualified person to mess around with it.

      Hi Andyirl, this element will fit your dryer. I'm afraid we don't stock deliver to addresses outside the UK, however if you have a friend or relative in this country, we'll happily send it to them for you.
