Question about Dryers
Depends what model but electric dryer heaters are a simple resistive coil and can be tested for continuity using an ohmmeter. They will read a specific resistance depending which style, but generally if you have a continuous circuit and the element is not grounded, it is probably good. Before you suspect the element itself, many electric dryers these days have a thermal overload, especially if it is a whirlpool/kenmore/kitchenaid dryer. Look for an oblong white overload in the area of the thermosts, likley with light blue wires. They go out often.
