Hello - A month or so ago, my Electrolux dryer (EIMED60JIW0) started throwing error code E64 which indicated a potential shorted heating element. Shortly after, I purchased from Amazon a new heating element, thermal limiter, and thermostat, and replaced all three in my dryer amazon.com/Thermostat-SupHomie-Compatible-Electrolux-Frigidaire/dp/B08FC3NTDZ. The dryer appeared to have been fixed and worked great up until yesterday.

Fast forward to yesterday, and the dryer is now throwing error code E65. The dryer will run/tumble for a few minutes, but then throw the error. It is also not heating. After taking the dryer a part to attempt to see if there was a clogged air duct (per the E65 error code troubleshooting), the air duct does not appear to be the issue. There were no clogs in it. However, when I looked at the heating element, there appears to be some sort of damage to it (smoke/fire?), which leads me to believe that this might be the issue (again). Please see the attached pics.

Am I correct to assume that the heating element is, again, "fried?"

Thanks in advance for your help.

That's why you don't buy appliance parts on amazon.

You will need the OEM heater assembly:

I replaced the heater element, but unfortunately the E65 error code came back and the dryer was producing no heat. So, then, without investigating, I purchased the "Frequently Bought Together" parts of consisting of the thermostat and inlet thermal fuse. I received those parts today, and came to realize that the inlet thermal fuse was actually for a "gas" version of my dryer. Thankfully, the thermostat was the correct part, so I replaced that a little while ago. Unfortunately, still no go. The dryer runs, but is not producing any heat. It also does not appear to be throwing any error codes. Do you think if I get the correct inlet thermal fuse part and replace that, that might fix the problem? Thanks in advance for your help.

The 137032600 Inlet Thermal Fuse is the heating element thermal fuse, so ohm test that to see if its bad as well. Make sure the dryer is unplugged first.

Here it is:
