Normally on that dryer if it runs but you get no heat the heating element is burned out. You can check the thermostats on the heater as well, but you still have to get to the heater to do that. Check the heater and the thermostats there for continuity and see which one is burned out. In my experience as long as you have 240 volts to the unit for sure with nothing wrong with the wiring at the terminal block you have a bad heater. Note the part number in the video is the one you need.
