Ive changed the heating element twice in 2 days all the fuses and the heating wont go off. I havr to unplug after use
Sounds like yo have a wire shorting to the unit itself or a contact closed onthe dryer timer, always allowingheat.. I would point to a shorted wire somewhere. might be a ***** to find sorry!

Often a dryer heating element burns out, but doesn't trip the circuit breaker or blow a fuse. The heating element is simply a long coil of special wire. You can check it for continuity with an ohm meter. No continuity means the element is bad and you need to replace it--electric heating elements aren't repairable. Check the thermal fuse (a heat-sensitive fuse that blows if the dryer overheats) that is mounted to the exhaust duct inside the back cover panel. The fuse is about an inch long. It's usually embedded in black resin and mounted in a white plastic housing.
If the fuse has blown, it has no continuity. When this happens, your dryer either just stops heating, or it doesn't work at all. Be sure to inspect the venting/heating system before replacing the fuse to put the dryer back into operation.
