Question about Dryers
Even when running on the Fluff/No heat setting dryer will continue to heat. I have already replaced the Thermal Limiter and the Thermostat-Safety.
Remove power from the unit. You want to use a multi-meter set on an ohms scale. Remove the wires from each terminal at the heating element. Check resistance to ground at the heater by putting one meter lead to the case of the heater, and the other meter lead to each terminal at the heater. It sounds as though your element has gone bad and is shorted to the case. The resistance should be infinite. If you read any resistance from the element to the case, replace the heating element. The no heat setting should be exactly that....no heat.

Tips for a great answer:
Hello Scott Joseph Brandt - Since you have already replaced the thermal limiter check your breaker or fuses. Some dryers are run by two separate fuses, one for power and one for heat-ours is. If it is not the power source more than likely the issue lies with your heating coil.
