OK can you remove the element and test it for continuity?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Working remotely so wife is directly at home, we can remove the element but I need to walk her through testing it

Unplug the unit then remove the element set the meter to continuity...where the meter BEEPS steady when the leads are touched and then with the element out and unplugged test across the element terminals...if the meter beeps steady the element is good if it does not the element is bad
