Hello, Before you replaced all those parts did you check each with a multimeter by performing an ohms test or measuring for continuity? By doing this it would tell if any of the parts that you had replaced were at fault. You can also conduct the same test on the heater as well. when performing any ohms or continuity test make sure the unit is unplugged and that you also unplug the part as well from the wires that are connected to it. I await your reply if you have any other questions. Thank you

Tips for a great answer:
Investigate these five areas if your dryer is not heating up:
If your dryer won't heat up, it's possible that it is not being supplied with the proper voltage. Here are three ways to make sure power is getting to your dryer: First, make sure your dryer is plugged in. Next, check the circuit breaker panel to make sure all the circuit breakers are in the correct positions. Finally, check to make sure no fuses in your fuse panel are blown. Any of these could explain why power is not getting to your dryer.
It is possible that your dryer isn't heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so that you can test it.

It is possible that your dryer isn't
heating because its heating element is defective. Heating elements are
irrepairable. If yours has ceased to function properly, you will have to
replace it. Open your dryer's cabinet and locate the heating element so
that you can test it.
Another possible cause for a dryer not
heating up could be attributed to a faulty thermal fuse. Once a dryer's
thermal fuse has blown, it is no longer of any use. If your dryer's fuse
is blown, you will have to replace it. Open up your dryer's cabinet and
locate its thermal fuse so that you can test it.
If any of your dryer's thermostats have
become defective, they could be the reason that your dryer is not
heating. Open up your dryer's cabinet and test each of your dryer's
thermostats. If any are faulty, replace them.
A defective timer motor could also
cause your dryer to not heat up. Test your dryer's timer motor. If it is
no longer functioning as it should, replace either the entire motor
assembly, or just its motor.
