check all of those "relays", htey are thermostats, monitoring you temps, they should all have continuity through them if not its bad. (temp jump it out) just to see the element glow. TEMPORARIly.. you CANNOT leave any jumped out you will damaged something. HOUSE FIRE. just wanted to instill the importance of not leaving jumped out

SOURCE: heating element continuity?
Unplug the dryer from the wall. There are 2 wires connecting power at the heating element. Take one of these wires off, doesn't matter which one, but take at least one of the 2 off. Then put your meter probes across the terminal of the heating element where you took the 1 wire off and the other terminal of the heating element that still has a wire on it. Your meter will pretty much read full continuity if good, no reading at all if bad. Also check from one of these terminals of the element with one meter probe going to the metal frame of the unit. You should get no reading. If you do the element is shorted and would have likely tripped your house breaker.
Better to test a heating element for voltage with your meter like I described to you in your other question. I've seen heating elements read good when just doing a continuity test, however once voltage is applied and they start to heat they can expand and open up, thus not work, even though testing good when doing just a continuity test. Not always, but sometimes, it does happen enough to note to you.

Check the air flow from the vent-if there is no air or very weak air flow, it is the blower motor. It is not getting up to speed or not spinning at all. Try this:
Simultaneously press and hold down BOTH
"My Cycles" and "Back"
After a few seconds the dryer will enter service mode and report any problems.

Tips for a great answer:
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 irreparable. 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.
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.
