Question about Dryers
Check for a partially burnt heating element or a faulty high limit thermostat. The high limit thermostat is a round device mounted on a metal plate and is usually attached to the internal ductwork. Check the heating element for any sign of burning or broken wire. It can be tested using a multimeter or ohmmeter. Check for continuity. A lack of continuity indicates a bad heating element. The high limit thermostat can be checked in the same manner. It should have no continuity. I will attach a photo of a thermal cutoff and high limit thermostat for reference. Hope this helped and best wishes.
