Could be problems with the voltage to the dryer at the breaker box, be sure there is 240 volts to the dryer.  Then check the thermofuse on the side of the canister, if it is dead no heat.  Also check the safety thermostat, cyclling t-stat, heating element, also could be your heat selector switch or timer has bad contacts.  Start with the fuse on the canister and the element first tho.

Where is the fuse located. On the element itself? I see 2 different parts hooked into the element niether of which look like a fuse though.

Thermo-cutout at the top of the canister, check this first, safety thermostat at the bottom and the element inside, suspect these 3 things first...

I checked the three for continuity and they are all good.  Is that what you mean when you say to check them. If not how do I test them. Also due to the fact that this same problem happened a few weeks back leads me to believe that it could be a bad connection somewhere.  Is this a possibility and what connection woudl cause this problem. Thanks

Update

I removed the cycling t-stat cleanit around it and put it back. Plugged the dryer in and turned it on, no heat. I gave the element a tap and it got hot. Does this mean the element is going.

Means you have a loose wire connection somewhere. Look for burnt or discolored wire insulation.

Your element coil could be broken and the ends touched when you hit the canister, should also pull the element from the canister to see if there might be a bad coil that is broken but touching on vibration??
