The wiring diagram for your dryer is shown in the first image below. The L1 leg of the heating circuit is traced in red and the L2 leg is traced in green. If the L2 leg of power is missing, the dryer will not heat. I recommend that you check the house circuit breakers or fuses to make sure that they are not tripped or blown. The dryer will run with only the L1 leg of power supplied to the dryer. If the L2 leg of power is missing, the dryer will not heat.
If you find no problems with the house breakers or fuses, then I recommend that you check the voltage at the dryer outlet. The diagram in the second image shows the voltage that you should measure at the outlet. You indicated that you were using a volt/ohm meter to perform checks on the dryer. Use extreme care when checking the live voltage at the outlet. NOTE:
You should only check this live outlet voltage if you are completely confident in your technical ability to safely measure it
If the outlet voltage is okay, then you could have a problem with one of the other components in the heating circuit. You indicated that you checked some of those components. The thermal fuse is not in the heating circuit but there is a
thermal cut-off fuse
on the side of the heater box that could be blown. I provided a diagram of the components in the third image. I recommend that you
unplug the dryer
and check the thermal cut-off fuse, the high limit thermostat and the operating thermostat using your meter. You may find the cause of your problem in one of these components.
