My whirlpool dryer (ler6634dqo) still gets hot but takes several restarts to dry my clothes. Would this be the dryer heating element?

Video was perfect, excellent simple instructions. The heating element you showed is just exactly like mine. I found a break in the spiral wire that turns red and heats up after I did my continuity test. So the element is bad and I ordered my new one with you guys. My question is I only have a two (2) wire hook up on my element and yours showed three (3) wires. I looked for another just in case it fell off but there is not one. It works O.K. with the two what would the third be for? They must have made them with two at sometime. The dryer is 10 years old. Thanks guys you were a very big help and saved us a lot of money. GOOD customer service all the way around!!!!!!

Is this heating element compatible with whirlpool dryer model LER4600PQ0?

I have replaced the heating element but I don't think the old one is bad. I checked the lint hose and outlet all clear. I checked the amp and the electrical outlet and they are reading 250. I am guessing that the problem is the fuses on the dryer. Is it possible for the fuses to go out slowly, because I lost heat over a period of time.
