Almost all dryers have thermal protection in redundancy to prevent fires. This includes a thermostat, thermal fuse, and high limit switches, normally in the back of the dryer. Gas or electric. If any of these fail you wont run. But, if it is an electric dryer, you MUST have 220VAC at the outlet. 110VAC to ground on each leg dont cut it. if your qualified, measure between the two legs for 220.

I'm guessing the drive belt is incorrectly installed. It needs to hold the tightening pulley at tension. The belt goes down from left of drum to clockwise around the pulley them around the drive motor. Push up on pulley to install. Answer if you need more info. Only way to do this is to take it all apart again. You may be able to leave the fron roller assembly on to reach around it. Good luck.

Well obviously check that you have power to outlet, make sure completely plugged in, then take top off(if front loader) and check connections to control board.

Wash your filter with dish liquid and hot water. The oil in dryer sheets and fabric softener blocks the mesh.

Also check the outside vent is operating correctly and is not blocked.

Whereas is says 'clean filter', the error message is triggered through lack of airflow.

Try washing your lint filter with dish liquid, and water and give it a gentle brush. It has been identified that dryer sheets cause a waxy build up which restricts air flow.

yes it is possible that element is bad, before I started throwing parts at it would check hi limit disc. Also if you have 3 wire a 240 will read 240 between the hot wire and from neutral or ground 120. 120 will measure 120 between neutral.
