I have a DE106 I am refurbishing ,belt, rollers, good cleaning and such. the original problem that side lined the unit was a bad heating element. I went through the steps and determined the element was faulty as was confirmed after removal. the problem is after I replaced with a new element it will not has voltage as it should and the new element has I to blind to see something simple? I would be grateful for any suggestions.

Non Heating Electric Dryer

The path that the power to the heater takes goes through at least two thermostats, the motor centrifugal switch, the timer etc. The first thing to do is test at the terminal block on the back of the dryer and see if you really have 208 or 240 volts there, from there check out the other parts I mentioned while keeping a keen eye out for burned or broken terminals in the heater circuit.
