Heating element stays on after dryer goes through cycle.  I have to unplug dryer to shut it off.  Relay Problem??  Any advice would be great.

Model#: 76975810  Serial# m94006663

Sounds like you heating element may be grounded, see if it is touching something metal in the dryer...

Well you hit the nail right on the head!!  The coil was in contact with the housing.  I was able to repair it in about 10 minutes.  Thank You Soo much.
