I submitted a question before that I had a follow up to. The original question is below.
Unfortunately I don't see a gauge on the wire. It is a red wire with the writing: AWM Style 1015 OR 1230 105•C 600V E49677(M) CSA TEW.
That's all I see. Does this writing tell you the gauge?
Whirlpool Duet 8533582 My Whirlpool 3391914 Fixed Thermostat overheated and melted. I bought another Thermostat but the connectors to the thermostat also burnt. The wires themselves look okay but I need to replace the connectors (AMP Female Disconnects) to the thermostat. At the hardware store I see different AWG sizes (16-14 .250 or 12-10 .250). The guy at Home Depot said it was the 16-14 or 12-10. Is any of this making sense? I've replaced the fuse and the heating element in the past but might be over my head here.

ANSWER Hello Jason, If you look at the wire that goes to the thermostat it will have writing on it that tells you what gauge the wire is. Normally this wire would be 16-14 but you want to check the wire itself to see.

ANSWER Hello Jason. Those are manufacture numbers. You may need to remove the wire and take it with you to the store to buy some. Or you can order the complete wiring harness for the unit.
