It just dawned on me that this person is trying to fix the dryer without the help of a meter. Even I cannot do that, sorry. There is a small amount of science involved in this job, and having the right tools is a necessity. A voltmeter is fairly cheap investment if you want to start saving some real money on repairs. It takes all the guesswork out of open circuits.
I try to make certain things like this clear on my own forum before someone gets too far in over their head by placing a "read first" page that explains how things work. There is also a paragraph which lists the limitations and exclusions of using a help forum like this and mine reads:
"Advice received on this forum is given free of charge and no liability is assumed by the site administrator or any authorized agent thereof. This includes advice given by outside moderators who have professional experience to provide free of charge on this forum. If the repairs suggested are beyond your level of expertise, then you should call in a local professional to assure a proper repair. Basic hand tools and a volt/ohm meter are the minimal requirements to test your appliances."
To me that is pretty straightforward.
