here this is a step by step repair and troubleshooting video for that style electric dryer, you will need a ohm/voltage meter to check the fuses and heating element. The video does not go over the fact that you need to check voltage at the dryer first, you must have 220 volts for the dryer to heat, if the breaker is bad the dryer could only be getting 120 volts which is enough for the motor to run but not enough for the heating element to operate and If you do not have a meter or know someone who does and how to use it, I highly recommend calling a repair person out because there is quite a few things that can cause an electric dryer not to heat and you must do the tests in order to find what part is on the dryer is bad, other wise you will just be replacing parts that may not fix it.
