To use the meter set it to OHMs ,thats a test to find a break in the circuit,When you touch the leads together you should get a reading,The bottom panel comes off to get to the heater and the thermostats,First check for voltage at the dryer ,Set the meter to 240 volts for that,,It should read 220 volts at the dryer plug,let me know
