Q: LG Tromm Electric Dryer DLE5977

Can I check the heater element for Ohm's at the Main Control Board or do I have to disassemble the Dryer?

You can disconnect the yellow and blue heater wires from the control board and measure the resistance between them. If both heater elements as well as the wire connections at the heater are good, you will measure approx 20 ohms. If you find an open circuit, time to take it apart to replace the heater or repair wire connections.
