One other thing them dryers are notorious fer is a stripped blower wheel. The plastic hub wallows out with the heat over time and begins to slip. It takes them clothes twice as long to dry and blows them fuses at some point. Keep that style dryer happy with a good blower wheel and you have a nice machine.

Disconnect the wires and use a meter set for ohmms. Touch the meter leads to the terminals. No reading is a bad relay.
