No heat

I removed the old thermostat. One of the wires was fried. The new thermostat came with a new clip/connector so I cut the bad part of the wire out, stripped it back and attached the new connector. Then, I screwed the new thermostat in place and attached both connectors. The dryer has heat again. PartSelect.com got the correct part out to me in a short amount of time. Their repair help also helped me test and diagnose the problem in the first place.
