Question about Whirlpool LER5636P Electric Dryer
If there's no continuity, replace it. The Thermal Cut-Out should read a short if it is good. This could very well be the cause of your heating problem. Make sure you replace the hi-limit thermostat at the same time. Without doing so, one or the other often go bad again. Whirlpool sells the parts as a set and can be found at searpartsdirect.com. I hope this helps you. Let me know if you need further assistance.
PS Double check the heating element too. Disconnect the leads and take a resistance check at the terminals. If good, it will read between 9 and 13 ohms.
