Do both ends have the same kind of electrical clip for making the connection, or is one end bare wires? Can I get a wire with the clip on both ends?

I have a whirlpool duet dryer that isn't heating. The thermostat shorted out and the black wire that was connected to it also burned. I can't find the black wire seperately. Will the red one work??

I replaced the thermal fuse and have checked the heat coils and all 3 thermostats with a multimeter but the dryer continues to run with no heat. The timer dial does advance when the dryer runs. All wiring appears to be intact. What else could be wrong?
