Question about Element Water Heaters
Taking it that you are talking about a hot water system (models mean nothing with out make and type of equipment) take the old element to a plumbers supply shop( hardware shops will not have the elements) and they will have a suitable replacement
elements can be straight loops or be curved so that the follow the sides of the tank
however with electric hot water systems , the leak is not always at the gasket but at the fitting behind the gasket which has corroded internally from electrolysis for the element
recommend that as there is power involved that you get in an accredited plumber to check the system first because if the tank is leaking then a new gasket and element is a waste of cash

If wire is bad between upper and lower parts of water heater, and water heater has tight-fitting 2" foam insulation, it usually indicates water heater replacement.
