The thermostat is normally located at the bottom rear of the dryer near the haeting element they are easy to change but some stats have a reset button on it if it needs reseting it will click when pushed

if it wont heat up most likely it had a open in the heating element.it will need to be replaced but before that check the little plastic thermal fuse that is on the front of the exhaust fan housing.an easy way to see if the fuse is bad is to just bypass the fuse by hooking the two wires that go to the fuse together and running the dryer. if the dryer heats up when you bypass the fuse then replace the fuse.if it does not heat with the fuse bypassed then replace the heater coil
if its an old round buss fuse that screws in the panel(especially an old 60 amp panel),sometimes the center where the fuse lands the insulation gets weak in this area and lets it arc over when the dryer calls for current to heat the element replace this with a sub box and breaker set-up.the other thing it can be is the element is touching the units case and grounding out causing the same problem
1. No power to the dryer Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.
2. Heating element A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
3. Thermal fuse Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.
I am sorry to hear this, my name is Marc White, i am self employed and it seems as though you have a bad timer, bad timer will cause the timer not to go to the off position and blow your fuse......change your timer..
If the motor can run, check the fuses in the house's panel. Electric dryers run on two phases of the 220-240 volts outlet; the motor on one phase, the heating coil on both phases. One of the two fuses may be burned out.
REMOVE the fuses before touching any component inside the dryer's housing.
If the fuses are OK, check if the the switch resting on the motor itself, has not burned terminal or wires.
