Question about Dryers
It sounds as if your heating element may have broken in one area and fallen against the element shround and grounded itself out. This will cause the element to bypass the safety circuitry and continue to heat, but at a lower wattage. You were very diligent in unplugging the dryer.
You will have to replace the heating element. Do not attempt to repair the element as this will only cause a hot spot and will burn in two again.
