How do I remove heater element in a 3525d
If your electric hot water heater is slow to heat, runs out of hot water faster than it used to, or doesn't deliver any hot water at all, there's a 90 percent chance that simply replacing one or both of the heating elements will solve the problem. Water heater repairs are straightforward, and replacement elements are inexpensive ($8 to $20) and readily available at home centers, hardware stores and appliance parts dealers.
We'll show you how to test the heating elements, remove one if it's bad, and install a new one. Just keep in mind that water heaters have a typical life span of 10 to 15 years. If your heater is approaching old age, replacement may be smarter than repair

GE40M06AAG lower element leaking at the gasket. Will any 240V, 4500W replacement element work, or is there one recommended?
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
