I've replaced the thermistor but haven't checked the heater relay. Where is it located and how would I check it?
How are you wanting me to check it with the volt meter? I removed one of the wires from the large terminals touched that wire and the terminal I removed it from with my volt meter probes and got 49.2 volts. I want to make sure I'm checking at the correct points.
I've traced the large wires coming off the relay and neither of the two goes to the timer. They both appear to go down towards the heater.
Unfortunately I only know how to do some basic functions with my volt meter. I'm not sure how you want me to check the voltage. Where do you want me to place the red and black probes to check for the proper voltage?
I can put one probe on the top small terminal another probe on a top big terminal and get 122 volts. Probe on small bottom terminal and big bottom terminal get 4.75 volts. Probe on small bottom terminal to big top terminal 122 volts. I can put probe on either small terminal and get 122 volts with the top big terminal. But when I probe either small terminal to the big bottom terminal I only get 4.75 volts.

I replaced the thermal fuse and the thermistor. But according to my continuity test on the old thermal fuse it was okay. And when I checked the old thermistor for ohms it was reading within specs. But I replaced both hoping it would solve my problem but it didn't.
Will do Thanks for your help so far.
Yes, power at the plug is 220v.
Is there any test I could perform to make sure this is the problem? I hate to order it and my dryer still not heat up. You have been very helpful and I'm not trying to second guess your opinion but I would like to know for sure.
Thanks for your help I will get the part ordered.
