if you pull the unit out and remove the back panel, there is a heater on the lower left corner of the dryer. On the side of this heater is a black switch with a tiny red button on it. Push this red button and it will reset if for some reason it tripped. If it does click and reset then it means that your vent through your house might be slightly clogged.

If for some reason that does not work then chances are your element is bad or your unit isn't getting 240 volts. The unit will still run but it will not heat with only 120 volts.
