Kenmore dryer runs great but no heat

Kenmore dryer all of a sudden yesterday quit heating. It still tumbles and everything but does not heat up. I have checked with my ohm meter and have continuity across the two poles on the element, and there are two small items mounted on the element housing and I don't know if they are supposed to show continuity across them or not. I also checked across the thermal fuse and it also checks to be good. Can someone please tell me how and if the items mentions are supposed to show any kind of reading across them when unplugged? It is a Kenmore 110.96595520 Electric Dryer, and was one of the first digital models to come out about eleven or twelve years ago. Please Help??

Thanks
Walt

Kenmore gas dryer 110.78622700 Runs, tumbles, heats but does not heat long enough to dry clothes. Amy ideas what to check first?


Probably the solenoids on the gas assembly are bad. If it heats at all that is a sure sign of them heating up and quiting. Very common and easy fix. Before trying to check that look for sensor bars inside the dryer under the filter and clean em with windex. If the have buildup on em they might not be sensing wetness.

Dryer quit heating suddenly.


The fuse is located on the blower housing and if it was blown the dryer would not run at all. The limits is mounted on the heater housing and that could kill the heat as well as a blown heating element. I worked on a similar dryer not long ago with a heating problem and did a video:
