If I remember correctly, this model has a switch on the motor which activates both legs of the 220 to allow the heating element to come on. There is a wiring diagram under the lid of the dryer and should show this. Hope this helps.
Several reasons this could be. There is a separate fuse for the heating element inside the unit...find it and check it. Second...The element works on a 220v system whereas the spinning and lights work on regular 110. Check the 30 amp breaker in the house. Third, the element is bad and needs to be replaced. There are only 3 or 4 major parts to a dryer. There are easy to repair if you take the time to get the repair manual and study it.
I would say it could be one of two things. The heating elements could be bad, not likely though as the were working when the dryer was reset. You may want to try changing your circuit breaker, as your heating elements work off of the 2 phase 240 voltage while everything else in the dryer works off 120V. Check the voltage on each phase of the breaker in your electric panel see if your putting out the full 110-120V per phase.
First things first...Are you sure that you have 220 volts to the dryer? Just because the motor runs doesn't neccesarily mean you have the proper voltage. Also check the connections where the cord comes in to see if they are tight and intact.
Check to make sure you have 240V at the outlet. If you do, check the continuity of the element and thermostats. If still no heat, it could be the temperature setting switch, the timer or the motor. Good luck!
shut off power to dryer. take front off dryer,remove belt from motor and idler pully (if there is one) try turning the motor shaft by hand. if it doesn't turn ,take off back of dryer and remove blower housing and see if anything is blocking the impellers.. if not any of these then you may have to get professional help it may be a bad motor or timer
