Hi,

I always check the voltage at the terminal block where your dryer power cord hooks up to first. Use a multimeter to check for 240 volts across the 2 outer terminals.

I see this happen a lot too:

If your getting 240 volts across the outer two terminals, then next I ohm test this DC96-00887C Thermal Fuse to see if its tests good. Make sure you unplug the dryer before ohm testing it.

That's the main problem child that tends to go out first when the dryer runs but doesn't heat.

No because everything except the heating element runs on 120 volts.
