On Sat. we put in a new breaker panel. Sat. night my dryer wouldn`t work, my "handyman" did a couple of things to the breakers and then my dryer would run but no heat. So, before I investigated he starts to dissmantle the dryer and gives up. I found it could be several things starting with the heating element or thermal fuse. I tool the whole element out and took it to an appliance stroe they said it was fine and that I probably wasn`t getting full voltage due to my new breakers. So, I went and bought a new breaker, installed it, put the dryer back together, turned it on and seen sparks coming from the back. Opened it back up, I forgot to hook up a single purple wire to the coils. I replaced the little end peice(cuz it had burnt) hooked everything back up, turn it on and it got extremely hot in about 3sec. and coils were glowing red. It is yet again apart and I don`t know where to go next. Did I kill it?

The high current may have shorted a thermostat. Pull out all thermostats and put in an oven, verify they all open at the right temperature.
If ok, I would check for a shorted heating element, or an element short to ground.
