ok without a meter to do any testing it is hard to do any checking

Are you just wanting to do visual checks ?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

does the dryer in fact tumble and just not heat?

Ask Your Own Appliance Question

ok if it does in fact tumble .

You can open the dryer and visually look at the heating element .

but if it is one of the three inline thermostat you will not be able to tell the difference in a good one from a bad one , the contacts are inside the thermostat and you will not be able to see them
