If this is accurate, then this indicates a bad heating element. The confirming test is to measure the resistance of the heating element.
I took connectors off the element while running and got 115v on each conector.
These burns can prevent current flow to the heating element. So, while you may indeed measure voltage there, the connections may be incapable of passing current due to the burns.
There is a burn on the legs of the power cord itself, but I'm reading 115v @ each terminal.

I meant the terminals that slide on the elements posts.
The only burn mark I can find is on one of the 3 prongs that go into the wall. Is it worth replacing the cord?
See Nick's instructions.
Nyet, comrade. Much, much too far. I'm up in the Lake Sunapee area. However, I think you would benefit greatly from the Total Appliance Awareness Microchip Implant.

I'm getting 220 @ the wall. ... I took connectors off the element while running and got 115v on each conector.
Now you're saying:
The dryer is hooked up to 240v.... I'm reading 119.3v/119v. @ the element and @ the power terminals.
Has something changed?
