Thermal fuse replaced wires won’t stay connected

Thermal fuse replaced wires won’t stay connected

I replaced my thermal fuse but after each load the wiring falls off one of the prongs of the fuse. I had to pry the connectors off as this was a 12 year old dryer and first time any repairs need. Once I placed the new fuse I noticed the female connectors were very loose and basically fell off on their own. I tried using pliers to tighten the connectors to the prong but it did not help the issue. I did use electrical tape to hold the wire in place so I could finish my laundry but after the load was completed the piece fell off again. I really don’t want to reconnect this piece after each load of laundry. I’m not sure if I just need to re-crimp the wires or if there are any other solutions I am unaware of.
