Hi,

You'll need to unplug your dryer and ohm test the heating element first with a multimeter.

Here's the heating element for your model below, which you click the link to it there is a video that shows you how to access/replace it.

So here is the story. Vacation home. 2 weeks ago after drying 2 loads of towels on high heat. 3rd load no heat.
Came back today to ohm test the element per your suggestion.
But before I took it apart I ran it and now have heat again....what ya think?

Its intermittent then, which will be very hard to nail down where the problem is until it stops heating again.
