Hi my name isXXXXX have been an appliance repair tech since 1992.
Pull your element back out and make sure the heater is still intact and not came off its base. If it touches ground it will stay on. If the heater checks out, the only thing that it could be is the timer contact relay on the control are shorted. Part# XXXXX for the control board complete.Can be purchased here:

You can access the contrl board by removing the rear control access panel and then to gain access through there. Remember ALLways unplug your dryer before accessing the area. Hope this helps you!
