Hi,Welcome to Just Answer, My name is XXXXX XXXXX forward to helping you today. Lets get started.
Okay you actually took the heating element out or at least the drum to look at the heating element? Did you get that far into it? What you need to do is bypassed the door switch and I'm assuming you know how to work on electrical systems since you gone this far, take the two wires off the heating element tape each one to your meter leads so they don't touch anything, then start the dryer you can do this without the drum in if you bypassed the door switch also make sure I didn't really look to make sure there isn't a belt switch if there is you will need to bypass that also for the dryer will not start, once the dryer starts check for 240 V to you meter, let me know if you get it, thanks, Bryan
