SearsPartsDirect.com offers handy diagrams for many American Water Heater products that let consumers know exactly where each part sold online fits in the appliance. The company clearly notes which parts are substitutions and which are original, and all parts sold through the website come with a sure-fit guarantee. Many in-stock items ship on the same day when purchased from the company, and Shop Your Way Rewards members earn points when buying parts online.
