My the black wire connected to heating element is fried, but the element still tests good for continuity. Although the clip prong in the pocelian is very loose. Would this loose prong actually cause the wire to fry, or do I need to keep trouble shooting?

I have a Maytag electric dryer model MDE308DAYW that has burned the bottom black wire going to the heating element right off. I cut the wire and replaced the little clip end on it and the dryer worked for a couple of loads and now the wire is burnt off again. Do I need a new heating element? Where the wire clipped into the heating element felt kind of loose in the white plastic insulator that it runs through. Is it supposed to be? Thanks you so much! Great website you have here :-)

My dryer does not dry anymore on the medium heat setting, which I use for all my permanant press clothes. I put the clothes in set the dryer and come back when it shuts down (about 45 min or so) and my clothes are still wet. Which part should I look at replacing. Have already replaced the switch-temp part#wpl 40084201. Other heat cycles work fine, regular does seem to be a little hotter but that could be just me and it does seem to stay on a lot longer that usual.

The dryer was working but didnt have heat. I tested heater element, high limit thermostat, and thermal fuse. thermal fuse was the only one without continuity so i replaced it. Then I cleaned out all the lint that was inside. Tested it out opened the door after a couple minutes I can see a red glow and I can smell something burning. Im positive the heater element is touching the housing. Could the heater element be damaged even though it has continuity? Do I need to replace the high limit thermostat if I get a new heater element?

Black Wire going from the hi limit thermostat to the element has melted in two at the terminal. I presume this was a loose connection. I have replaced the wire with awg 12 type mtw/thwn-2/thhn. My question is...is this an acceptable replacemnt wire? I could not find adequate markings on the short piece that melted and I am unsure of the wire type. Thanks.
