a wire to the heating element on a 20 something year old Whirlpool dryer gets so hot that it burns through.  I am no electrician.  What do I do?  The model number is LFE5920W0.  The wire that is burning through is blue and the rest are red.  I would appreciate any help.  Thanks.

You can repair the wire by splicing in some good wire but you need to see what is causing your dryer to over heat.  Make sure your dryer vent is clear, if it is not, it will overheat.  You could also have a grounded heating element, make sure it is cycling off and not staying on with the dryer motor off and the door open with the timer set to a drying cycle and the dryer plugged in.
