NO

With no meter to test with, I can just give you an educated guess. Is this something you would like or would you prefer to get a meter to test with?

The heating element requires 240 volts to produce heat. All other components work on 120 volts. So, it is common to lose the heating side of the power supply and the dryer will still come on, it just won't heat. So, you may have a problem with the power supply to the dryer. If the power is good, one side of the element power comes from the cord, through the timer, thermostats and thermal fuses. The other side comes from the cord and through the motor switch. So, since you have replaced the element, thermostats and fuses, that only leaves the timer and motor as suspect. The timer is much more likely to be at fault, provided the 240 volt power supply is to the dryer. I have linked the timer below. That company allows returns on installed parts, so you can try it and see and return it if you still have no heat.

The video below shows how to test voltage to the dryer, should you decide to get a meter.
