Thanks Anna. Its a GE Profile Electric Dryer, model # dpsr610eg5wt, The dryer runs, but does not heat. I was told to check certain parts with an ohms meter, the switch interlock(WD21X0557)(803 on diagram), the thermostat(WE4M181)(506 on diagram), safety thermostat(WE4M160)(505 on diagram) and safety thermostat(WE4M137)(507 on diagram) before i move on to the next step. So i have tested all parts, the switch interlock and both saftey thermostats test is fine. The question i have is about testing the thermostat. Its has four wires. Every time i start from one of the wires, there is always one wire that doesnt have a signal. Its always the same one. Would that prove that the thermostat could be the problem?? I think it does but thought I would ask someone before i buy the part. Hope this helps. Thanks.

The inlet thermostat Key 506 is shown in the first image below. The top contacts on that thermostat are marked in a darker shade of blue. Those contacts are for the bias heater. That bias heater heats up the thermostat when the contacts are energized by the selector switch in certain settings to "fool" the thermostat into detecting that the temperature is higher than it actually is so that a lower actual temperature will be maintained in the dryer drum. The resistance through those contacts on the top of the thermostat should measure around 9K ohms (9000 ohms). I posted a wiring diagram in the second image that shows the circuit traced in wire colors. The side contacts on that thermostat should measure around zero ohms (continuity) at room temperature.

That information should help you check the thermostat. You can use the wiring diagram shown below to check other components if necessary.

Be sure that the dryer is unplugged when accessing and testing internal components.

If you need more help, reply with additional details.

Ill have to test the thermostat again to double check the ohms. All i did for testing before was turn the selector to the tone setting of ohms on the ohms meter. I didnt not hear any tone when I tested the inner connects on the thermostat at room temp.

If that thermostat is okay, you can check the other componnets in that circuit in a similar manner. You may also need to check the selector switch and the element.
