No, your readings are all correct, your heater is good. If the dryer isn't heating, make sure you're getting 220 volts to the back terminal block on the dryer where the power cord connects to the dryer---not just 110 volts. That means you should have 220 volts between the 2 outside wires.

Now if that checks good and the heater checks good, test the fuses and thermostats around the heater and vent. If any of them have no continuity, replace them. If they all check good then you have a bad control board.
