Question about Frigidaire Dryers
Could it be a loose element or connection
Yes but it could also be a faulty control or sensor. Check the heat sensor.

SOURCE: Dryer tripped out during cycle
An electric dryer must be on a circuit by itself. If you lost power to downstairs sockets, you will need an electrician to separate the 120volt side from the 240volt side. You may not have a problem at all with the dryer. If another appliance was operating at the same time as your dryer, that appliance would have overloaded your circuit and tripped the breaker. Please have this looked into by an electrician to avert a possible fire!
Your tech should have recognized this situation or maybe I have misunderstood the issue, but I gave my opinion based on the question above,

Since you stated that the heating element is heating up I believe it rules out the thermal switches.
When you push the start button does it make the motor make any noise? Maybe hear the motor humming? Two things to check for are Broken Belt or Bad Motor:
This requires common sense and since you are going to be bypassing the safety features you need be CAREFUL.
First, with door open, manually press in door switch to by-pass door safety, then press "start", try to manually start the dryer by spinning the drum by hand, If you hear the motor humming but it does not start spinning on it's own; most likely it is a broken belt which can be changed without much difficulty for less than $15 bucks. NOW if it then continues to spin on it's own GET YOUR HAND OUT OF THERE and close the door; you have a bad motor and even though it started it needs to be replaced. A motor for that is available for just under $100 bucks and is not to bad to replace, I would recommend replacing the belt at the same time since you will be in there. Good Luck!
