My dryer (Model 110.63012102) spins with no heat.

I've checked:

exhaust airflow -- okay.

Heater Element (good continuity, & 100 ohms resistance)

Thermal cut-off (good continuity, near zero ohms resistance.

250 degree F thermostat (good continuity & near zero ohms)

And I've checked two items on outside of blower housing that I thought were

the "Thermal fuse" and the "Thermostat, Internal-Bias." What I thought was thermal fuse has good continuity and near zero ohms. What I thought was the "thermostat, Internal bias" had NO CONTINUITY and 10000 ohms.

After obtaining a new "thermostat, Internal bias" I discovered the part that had no continuity was actually a thermosistor. I got a new one, the electrical connections were sticking out of the plastic bag, when I check that part with my multimeter, I discovered that the new part also has no continuity and about 1000 ohms.

Is the "thermistor" supposed to be open like that?

Since the thermistor is not on my dryer parts diagram, should I assume that "thermistor" is another name for the "thermal fuse" or the "thermostat, internal bias"?

I also checked my 220V outlet, it seems to be reading correct voltages, 220 V on one pair, and 110 on two.

What other items shoud I check?

** the new part also has no continuity and about 1000 ohms. **

Those are two contradictory statements. If something has "no continuity", it will have infinite resistance. ANY resistance is a sign of continuity (see the following link).

- How do I test for continuity?

** After obtaining a new "thermostat, Internal bias" I discovered the part that had no continuity was actually a thermosistor. **

A 'bias thermostat' has electric contacts for the heater power circuit and for an internal heater (see the following link).

A "thermistor" is a thermistor and is only used in conjunction with an electronic control. None of those other parts you mentioned are a thermistor. Your dryer does not use one at all.

** What other items should I check? **

I am not convinced you are testing properly. I suggest you read the first link I supplied and retest the items in question.
