Question about Dryers
Had the same problem on a whirpool drayer. Get your multimeter and check which heat fuse is broken. Take that one out and throw it in the floor until you have conductivity again. Clean drayer vents and heater. This worked for me, good luck. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UuFQOuSlzlw

Is the drum turning?if the drum is ok sounds like the thermo fuse on the heater box failed,most of the time it's from a clogged dryer vent hose or wall vent,let me know what you find-mike

SOURCE: tumble dryer not giving off heat
It could be the heat limiter switch which is either one or two run in series little button looking things near the element on the back, usually under a bowed out cover. Also check the resistance on the heating element after you have pulled the wires that go to the terminals so you don't get a false reading. Other than that it gets into checking contacts on the timer itself and that gets a little lengthy in discussing. Hope that helps.

SOURCE: Dryer not tumbling
A broken belt is very common. If you hear the motor running, that's probably it. The dryer must be taken all apart to replace the belt. Hopefully instructions will come with the new belt. Routing the belt over the motor shaft and around the tensioner is always a challenge.

SOURCE: dryer heats but won't tumble
Assuming, the timer is ok and that you can hear the the dryer motor running, it sounds like a broken belt. These kind of failures generally occur suddenly - one day it works, the next day it doesn't.

You need an ohm meter to do needed checks. Unplug dryer from power,,, then look for sensors and locate the heat coils. Using the ohm meter, check each device by connecting meter to the posts ( your looking for an open curcuit) Note that when you touch the leads of the ohm meter together, the gage will move? This is closed condition, and if the needle did not move, this is called "open". When you find a sensor or heat coil that reads open, that part is bad.
Now make sure there is not a tripped breaker in the fuse panel of the house,,, because even though the dryer is 220 volt,,, 110 volt runs the tumble motor while the other 110 volt curcuit runs the heat side ( so one will work without the other)
