Hi, my Frigidaire FEX831CS0 was drying clothes, but it seemed to be getting them too hot. One day it smelled like something was burning and then the dryer stopped heating the clothes. I noticed just before this, when I got it used, that it appeared to have melted clothes on the inside of the dryer drum. I ordered a new heating element, fairly convinced that was the problem. (I also ordered a new heat level switch since the shaft on the switch was broken and I wanted to be able to control it.)

When I got the dryer apart to exchange elements, I discovered that the 6 or so wires leading up to the element controls were melted. I would like to be able to replace those wires, but I cannot find the correct wiring harness. I have shopped various sites, including appliancepartspros.com, and I find multiple different wiring harness, none of which look like mine. Can someone point me in the right direction?
