This unit is more than just a year old...they have not made them since 2005. The reason you cannot substitute a regular 5KW element coil  into the heater box is because this element  has been tapped to allow a 3.5 KW low heat setting. (You'll notice the element has 3  teminals insead of the usual 2.)

This was one of Whirlpools decisions when they bought Maytag in 2006 was to close the factories that made this machine and discontinue the parts.

Looks like it's time to go shopping for a new dryer.

This place claims to have a restring kit, but I have never purchased from them, buyer beware.
