We have a Kenmore Elite Oasis Dryer, 110.6703, that will run the cycle with no heat. Could this be the thermostat? I'm not really that great at repairing things, but with money tight and it being the holiday's I need to give this a go, so any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
You can check the element, thermostats and thermal fuse for continuity but you'll need a meter that can read Ohms and volts, both AC and DC. The thermostats and thermal cut off will be located on the blower housing and element housing.

Also Have you verified with a volt meter you have 220-240 volts? I've seen many times when 1 side of the dual breaker has tripped or a bad breaker would just cause dryers to run on 120 volts that the motor needs but not 220-240 volts to make it heat.
If the fuse/breakers are fine, Its likely going to be either the heater itself or the thermal cut-off thats mounted on the side of the heater housing.
Check those for continuity with your ohm meter with the wires removed from those 2 first, make sure you unplug your dryer first.
You would need to take off the lower front access panel under your door, then take off the duct assembly#45, by removing the two #28 screws, and you may also have a screw at the very bottom of the duct assembly with a bracket attached to it, remove that one also.
