I am still blowing the same thermal temp sensor on the dryer heating element housing after using thermal kit #AP39094224 and cycle stat #AP3131939. What else could it be?
Answer Hello David. Check and see if the heater is grounded out. Remove it and inspect it for the coils touching the metal housing. Hope this helps.

My wire leads to the heating element are completely burned off what would be the problem?
Answer Arnie, There are several possibilities, the more common being : Low voltage to the dryer(under a load), loose connections at the terminal block and or the heater circuit components. A restricted or extensive vent length or overloading can cause the heater to cycle too often, and produce a temperature of 200 + dgrs. in the drum, causing the high amperage draw and wires to become soft and brittle, then burn.
