Fix: Kenmore Electrical Dryer motor OK but No heat

Kenmore Electrical Dryer motor OK but No heat. This model can not be opened from the back. Heating coil is broken.

Short term fix: Connecting the heating coil. However it could be dangerous. Shorter wires means less resistance, thus larger current. Twisting it without pressure leaves gaps, which in turn may produce spark. Currently the fix is using a very small bolt and nut to connect the broken coil. The bolt/nut needs to press the wire hard enough to reduce gap. But you can not choose the bolt/nut be too big to cause short to the ground. It has been running a few months now. The ultimate fix is to replace the coil.
