So my I came home today to my wife saying the dryer was running, but not drying clothes. I opened the door and found the clothes were wet and cold. I assume the heating element or something associated with it went out. Can someone point me in the direction to trouble shoot it and order parts?

thanks,
Jake

Remove the back panel and the element is on the right and the thermostats are on the blower housing and element housing. Use your meter to check for continuity.

Heating element, high limit thermostat, thermal cutout, thermal fuse all have continuity.....the cycling thermostat does have continuity across the red wires but not across the purple....see pic attached.

125 Vac across each leg. She was using the auto moisture sensing setting...I have it running on just the timer setting currently and it doesn't seem to be heating
