Take the back off your dryer andcheck the ohms on your heating element, thermostat and fuse. The Element is inside a metal case the terminals are accessable. The fuse and thermostat are mounted on the same case.

heater relay causes high current draw and damages the
terminals on the heater relay on the main control board.

Hello there :
what you are going to want to do is to troubleshoot the heating circuit
if you have a multimeter
there is a thermal Cut-Out switch that is connected to the heater box.) -simply unplug wires and take reading from the end connetors
your reading should be 0 ohms. and nothing else
a part called the Hi-Limit Thermostat that is connected to the heater box, it should be located closest to the heating element wire leads unplug the wires and take the reading across the 2 wire connections . this should give you a reading of 0 ohms and nothing else.
Now if any of these 2 parts are not in this range they need to be replaced and i would recommend that you replace them as a set cause if one usually goes out then the other one will soon follow ok
I hope this is very helpful for you
Best regards Michael

you need to check the continuity of the thermal fuses,depending on your model there might be a thermal fuse on the top portion of the heating element can it should have two red wires, disconnect the wires and check for continuity if it has none then it needs to be replaced,
