Do you have a full model number located on a sticker around the front frame of the oven and can be seen if you open the door or remove the drawer below the door if there is one so that I can better assist you?

The bake element for this model is just below the floor inside the oven. If you open the oven door and remove the racks inside the oven, you’ll see two screws in the back corners of the floor. Remove those screws and then you can remove the floor. Unplug the oven and then unscrew the element from the back wall. Now you can pull the element out and unplug it to replace it.

After you have removed the oven floor pan did you remove the screw on the rear of the heating element also?

something was still holding it. it would not pull out
Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

the element only has that one screw and then the tabs that are on the bracket that holds the element in place to the lower floor panel .

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

they are L shaped did you push them back to unmount the bracket?

Appliance Technician: Master Tech, Whirlpool Master Technician replied 7 months ago

then the burner should lift up and out enough for you to gain access to the wire connections on the rear of the element.
