This is a badge bit (BB) that is part of the PEP curriculum.  Completing this BB is part of getting the sand badge in Electricity.

In this Badge Bit, you will replace a heater element for a water heater or clothes dryer.  Note: dish washers aren't a part of this BB since if you're washing by hand and using your washing machine as a drying rack, the element isn't needed anyway.

Here's a video of a guy changing a water heater element without draining the tank. Sweet!

And here's one of a clothes washing machine.  Looks like a challenge, maybe washing by hand isn't so bad after all:

To complete this BB, the minimum requirements are:
  - replace the element on a clothes washer or water heater

To show you've completed this Badge Bit, provide proof of the following as pics or video (less than two minutes):
   - the machine you're starting with and the new element
   - the project midway through
   - the reassembled machine and the old element
We cannot change unless we survive, but we will not survive unless we change. Evolving tiny ad:
