Dryer works fine on high heat....while drawing approx 26 amps using amp probe on the black incoming line with an available voltage,of 240. However the heating element continues to glow orange red when I switch to medium heat or no heat (air fluff ) I checked the bias thermostat for continuity and it is not open. Perhaps I'm not checking it correctly or there's is another item at fault.

Tw for Model Number 110.60202990

ANSWER Hello TW. If the heater glows on air fluff, either the switch is bad, or the heater is grounded and will need to be replaced. You can test this with a multi-meter TJMA-DMT3. Here is a link on how to use a multi-meter. http://forum.appliancepartspros.com/oven-repair-including-ranges-cooktops/4810-how-check-continuity-ohmmeter.html
