Maybe I was not clear. The wire leading to the heating element is what is burned...not the heating element.. I am wondering if the wire you sell in your repair kit for this exact situation is made from a special wire to act similar to a fuseable link or or is it standard wire see below original question: Is the heating element conecting wire made of special wire? The one on the lower side of my dryer had burned and came loose. I want to order the replacment for this but also want to be able to use it in the meantime. Can I use a normal 16 gauge wire and a wire nut with a new high temp spade clip for a short while? I am also going to order a new belt and replace the drum slides while I am in there since its ready for them. Thanks, Ed Ed for Model Number mde3758ayw Answer Ed, Unfortunately you would not want to try to use a 16 or any other wire to use the unit for the time being. This would be a safety hazard doing this and the wire would melt as it would get too... show more Read more: http://www.appliancepartspros.com/whirlpool-heating-element-connecting-279457-ap3134638.html#ixzz3XcjmiQbd http://www.appliancepartspros.com

Still not clear. Can I use part #AP3134638 to replace the spade end section of one of the red wires running to the thermal cut off which has 600V Dixiewire style 1015 or 1230 written on it? (One of the wires has a white stripe and runs down to the cycling thermostat. That one is ok). Thanks
