Hello,

 

LG dryer - no heat. Took out drum and ran unit (while lifting up the belt tensioner, and with the door lead attached and the moisture sensor thing attached). There is 120 v present at both sides of the high-limit thermostat(?) and the thermostat(?) (the two things on the side of the heater), as well as each of the three other connections on the front of the heater but the heater doesn't turn on. I know the "measure resistance" on the various components thing, but if there's power on all seven of the terminals on the heater, would that bypass all of that and just conclude that it's a bad heater?  Thanks SO much for your help!

Sorry - more info - There's also the 0 ohms of resistance on the two heater-mounted thermostats, the resistance between the terminals on the end-of-heater thing is 20 ohms, 20 ohms and 40 ohms, the terminals on the power in connection are good and there's continuity on the motor hot leads when you slide the little collar back.

Have you checked the continuity of the element. Could have a broken section.

Figured out how - checked the continuity between the common coil and each of the single coils - there is continuity.
