If the dryer isn't heating the first thing you'll want to do is make sure you're getting 220 volts and not just 110 volts. The dryer will run with 110 volts but it won't heat without 220 volts. If you're getting 220 volts, there are several thermostats and fuses to check. Below is a link to a video that will show you how to test all the different fuses and thermostats as well as the heater to determine which one is bad. As for testing for 220 volts, test between the 2 outside power wires at the terminal block on the back of the dryer where the power cord connects to the dryer. You should have 220 volts between the 2 outside power wires.
