Hello Folks,

My water heater went south, and both the upper and lower heat element went bad (led indicator shows that both are broken). The water heater is a Rheem "Performance Plus", model xe50t09el55u1, and it is a 5500 watts water heater. I wen to Rheem website and search engines, but could not find a list of parts (and part number) of the heating element for that water heater. Would that element be generic and used in many different water heaters (brands, models, generations)?
