one side of Operating Thermostat, Red/White wire to chassis = 120
other side of Operating Thermostat, Red Wire to chassis = 120

one side of Hi-Limit Thermostat, to chassis = 120
other side of Hi-Limit Thermostat, to chassis =120

one side of Heating Element, to chassis = 120
other side of Heating Element, to chassis = 120
OK, if those measurments were made in the Air-Fluff Cycle, that would indicate a bad Timer.

NOW check those voltages with the Dryer Timer set to the Regular heat Cycle, but not started,
If there's not 120v anywhere, that would confirm a bad Timer.

Timer set to Heavy Dry
Temp set to High/Heavy

I did not press the Start button

I still get 120 from the top black wire
             120 from both blue wires
       and 120 from the lower left hand (when looking at it) black wire

All other wires on the Timer read 000

NOW check THOSE voltages:

one side of Operating Thermostat, Red/White wire to chassis = ?
other side of Operating Thermostat, Red Wire to chassis =  ?

one side of Hi-Limit Thermostat, to chassis = ?
other side of Hi-Limit Thermostat, to chassis = ?

one side of Heating Element, to chassis = ?
other side of Heating Element, to chassis =  ?


I GIVE UP  ...

You ain't gonna get no readings because the centifugal switch inside the motor has to be tripped and that ain't gonna happen till that puppy takes off.

More wisdom from the swamp. For safety reasons manufacturers have cleverly installed a cent switch on the end of the motor. They want the heater element to be on ONLY if the motor is running which is blowing the fan and tumbling the clothes. You don't want heat if the motor ain't running(not good) If the fan ain't blowing the heat builds rapidly and the limits kick in killing power to the element.
Sometimes the heat builds faster than the bi-metal can react, in that case a fuse melts killing everything on electric models but killing only the gas in gas dryers.
