Good afternoon. My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you with your dryer today. The model number you gave me appears to indicate this is an electric dryer not gas, so you'll first want to test and make sure you're getting 220 volts to the back of the dryer where the power cord connects to the dryer itself. You should have 220 volts between the 2 outside power wires. The dryer can run but it won't heat with only 110 volts.
Now if that all checks good, you need to remove the left front panel of the dryer to expose the heating element under the dryer drum. Use a putty knife to slide into the seam above the lower front panel and pry down on the 2 hidden metal spring clips about 5 inches form the right and left sides. That will release the lower front panel so you can hinge it forward and down. Unplug the dryer.
Now most likely the element has failed but there are 2 more small devices screwed into the left side of the heating canister. You'll want to test continuity through these 2 parts if you have a multimeter. If either part doesn't have continuity---replace it. If they both check good, then test continuity on the heater to confirm it has no continuity. Whatever doesn't have continuity needs to be replaced.
