My Kenmore dryer drum light has burned out. While locating a replacement Walmart had it for $79.25!

LOL,!
do the web admins even pay attention to the pricing?

I ordered off Amazon for $8.00.

Either that or they are just throwing out the net to see what fish they can catch.

I've seen Amazon and other retailers have things priced like the peso was taking a nose dive. It's usually some third party seller on Amazon but not always.

Its something weird going on. Even at $8 is crazy for a small bulb.

Thatís a standard candelabra base. Just find something that fits and is ~10 watts.

About a year and counting for the one in my mother's dryer...clear 7W night light bulb, I recall a pack of four was $1 at Dollar Tree.
