You don't have to check those terminals.
Unplug the dryer. Remove the wires from the heating element and carefully place them so they would not touch each other or any other wires and/or metal parts. Plug the dryer and start it. Measure the voltage between each of those wires and the ground. Then measure the voltage between these wires. Post the results.
