The difference in glowing may be due to the airflow across the elements. the best way to check the elements is with a clamp on amperage meter. You can also check for 240 volts at the elements if 240 volt power is not present it may be the sequencer or limit switch that is the problem. Hope this helps.
If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heatingthe most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glowssometimes it is still not working properly.
if you dryer is gas check out this gas no heat tip....
If you have an electric dryer, you can have many differentthings that can go wrong causing the dryer not to heat.
check outthis electric no heat tip...
Per the model number you gave you have a gas dryer, the "heat element" is the ignitor for the gas and that could be the problem i have included a link to a youtube video that will show you how to test it.It does not need to be remover to test it just unplug it,if it test good here is a list of other possible causes high limit thermostat cycling thermostat timer motor heat selector switch (the one that says high/low/air fluff) flame sensor gas valve coils
Check voltage at the receptacle first. The motor and timer operate on 120VAC. The heating element requires 208/240VAC to operate. Remove power from the unit. You can check the heating element, thermostats and thermal fuses using an ohm meter across each components terminals with one wire removed. The thermal fuses and thermostats should read zero ohms. The heating element will read low ohms (20 to 40). Successful heater operation still depends on the motor centrifugal switch being closed. Depending on the model, you need the heat circuit in the timer or electronic control to be closed.
I hope this helps you.
Q - My gas dryer will not heat, what could stop my dryer from heating? A - Things that could stop a gas dryer from heating: - glow bar igniter, thermal fuse ( not all models ), coils on the gas valve, gas valve, thermostats,motor heat switch, timer, selector switch, sensor. A page for checking gas dryers is here.
its a heating element and its in the back of the dryer...it could also be the limit switches that are bad they are at each end of the heating element. you have to take it out of the dryer and replace it
