Question about Whirlpool GEQ8858H Dryer
the heating element is tested removing it from circuits and reading impedance at its terminals. If the element is bad, then circuit will be open (Ohms stay on infinity).
Rather than the heating element you should replace the thermostats kit. Thermostats are also tested reading Ohms. When a thermostat is good it must read zero or very low impedance at room temperature. The thermal fuse is tested in the same way, I do not know if you already replaced this part. Check the termal fuse first.
Here parts and diagrams:
One Time Use Thermal Fuse (part 7 in diagram)
CUTOFF-TML (Thermal Cut-Off Kit) (part 9)
High Limit Thermostat(part 15)
Cycling Thermostat (part 8)
Heating Element (part 17)
