Pulled the dryer out, unplugged from wall, removed vent hose and back covers. Poked hole through the label on the dryer frame to remove the heat element case spring retainer. Pulled the element housing out of the dryer and separated the element from the outer housing and did an ohm test. Test showed an open circuit. I found the burnt spot in the element and ordered a new one. Reinstalled with new element and everything works great.
