Dryer not heating

Appliance: Whirlpool Electric Dryer WED9400SW0
My Repair & Advice
Replaced heating element. Also replaced rollers & belt while I was in there. They probably didn't need it, but I did it anyway. Disassembly & assembly is fairly easy; no need to pull dryer out. Minimal tools required; DMM to troubleshoot, 1/4" ratchet with a 1/4" socket, power screwdriver with a 1/4" magnetic nut driver, (2) small screwdrivers to assist with connectors (2) disconnect and flashlight. Whirlpool could have designed this unit so much better; so as not to require as much disassembly for a heater element replacement.
