Take back panel and check for 240 at heater.Also you can use your ohm meter with dryer unplug and take one wire off each thermostat and check for continuity for each thermostat .

i found the thermal cut out fuse is open, no continuity going through it, the thermal fuse was .3 ohm, cycling t-stat was 0.0 ohm, the heater element was 19.2 ohm and the moisture sensor was open. do these reading seem correct to you?

now does the 2 t-stats both get used or do you just match up the one you need?
