Hello, and thank you for using this service. I'll be helping you with your problem today.

So yes, the heater can definitely be replaced and it comes with new gaskets to seal the element to the tub. What it won't come with is new terminals on the wires going to the element. So if these terminals are damaged, you'd need to cut the wires and get a new terminal at a local hardware store to put on the old wire. Either way, below is a link to the heating coild you'd need to order for your model.
