Randy 43 :

ok , if you have 220 at the outlet and breaker is on and the dryer runs but doesnt heat it is almost always the heating element , if you want to get at that ,the top has to come off , then 5 screws across the front of the control panel , then 4 screws on top of the front panel ,2 screws ander the lint filter on the front panel

remove the wires for the door switch and the front panel comes off
