All electrical parts can be and should be tested for continuity using an ohmmeter. I would recommend to test all parts involved in the heating circuit in accordance with the wiring diagram.

Here are the breakdown diagrams and Replacement parts for MAYTAG MDE3000AYW | AppliancePartsPros.com

I guess in a laymens answer to your question is it can be tested for continuity the same way you tested the element. If the dryer is not heating, you should also check the in coming voltage to the back of the dryer where the cord comes in. Don't assume the dryer has full power because it is running, because it can run with 120 volts, but won't heat. Tom ********************************************
