SOURCE: whirlpool dryer won't run
you may have a broken centrifugal switch in the motor because this switch activates the motor and the heater as well. supposed to be if the motor does not run , the heater should not heat in order not to create fire but you said that even the motor is not running, the heater is still heating, then there could be a problem with the motor centrifugal switch that is connected to this interlock switch that should trigger the heater.

Check the thermal fuse, located on the right side of the heater housing. If bad order LA1053 kit.
Fair warning it's a real patience tester to install correctly

Sounds like you have something shorted out.
The element issue could be a contact fused shut.
With both problems I would be looking for wires melted together, or a relay/sequencer welded shut melted etc.
You do have a potential fire hazzard here. If after removing the panel you cannot locate the problem, do not run the unit.

doesn't matter,it's either good or bad,when you touch the meter to it if it reads 1 and doen't move it's bad if you get any reading it's good,if the dryer is loaded with lint in the duct that the lint filter slides into and the vent line is blocked it will keep popping on you, clean out the dryer,number one cause for popping the thermal fuse
