The dryer stopped getting warm. I removed the heater and two of the coiled wires were fused together. I separated them and recrimped them to the connectors. I still have no heat. I checked voltage from the wire harness to the heater assembly and I got 110 volts to each of the heater elements. If I order part number 8573069 will I also need to order the thermostat. Is there a way to bench test the thermostat?

John for Model Number wed6400sw0

ANSWER Hello John. The thermostat should read closed for continuity. Did you test for voltage with the wires unhooked from the heater? If so, replace the heater.
