I have replaced the thermostats and switches (in heat duct) and next to the blower motor. I have checked that each thermostat and the the thermal fuse have continuity and power (240). No obstructions and breaker is fine. Still no heat. Could it it be the timer? Any other ideas. Thanks,Kent

If drum does not turn, check door switch.

Dumb question, but does the element have continuity?

Is the heating element ok? Did you check it for continuity,check it for ohms? What is the voltage at the back of the dryer? Should be 240vlts You said the breaker is ok, did you check the receptacle? Turn off breaker to dryer and try checking the wiring at the receptacle. Part link ==> Part number: AP3094254

The drum turns, and the ducts blow. The element has continuity. The wire block at the top of the dryer reads 240 volts.

wiring diagram not listed at S/M

Set the Dryer for a Heat Cycle,
Open the Door and (remove Drum if needed)
Measure for 120v AC between each side of each Thermal device, to chassis (ground)

Did you check voltage from L1 to N and L2 to N each should read 120VAC Then from L1 to L2 you should get 240Vac. If you have voltage there I would check voltage coming from motor to element.
