My Amana Dryer is not putting out any heat. I took the heater Element out and see no breaks in the coil. Could I have another problem?

The black wire from the heating element to the motor switch had burnt through twice. First time It happened I cut the wire back and replaced the spade connector, the same wire burnt through a second time, I thought the temperature limit thermostat wasn't working. I replaced the thermostat and the wire has burnt through again. I haven't checked the voltage at the outlet to see if I am getting 120VAC on each leg. Could the motor switch be bad and not sending 120VAC to that side of the element.

Got the new heating element, before we take the whole dryer apart, where is it located?

The bottom black wire is completely fried off of the heating element to where it is no longer attached to the connector. This has happened before so I stripped the wire back and reattached to the connector. It ended up doing the same thing a few weeks later. There has to be a reason why this keeps happening but I don't know where to start looking and or testing.
