Hi about 2 or 3 months ago I replaced the heating elements on my dryer then last night I blew 2 fuses .took the dryer appart and found a burnt wire .Question could when I put this all back together something was rubbing this whole time or another issue ?

Wher was the burned wire...? Usually a burnt wire is discernable from a rubbed wire, and burnt wire means high resistance typically at a connection. Maybe you had a bad contact at a spade connector. Tell us where the wire was.. If it was at the heater element that is pretty common and most new heaters come with a couple of pieces of wire just for that event..
