Click on the below link to see the diagram where the thermostat is located.
Part number 8 is the thermostat on the diagram. If the unit is not getting hot, you can use an Ohm Meter to check for continuity. If the thermostat reads open or no connection, the unit is bad. If you do not have an Ohm Meter you can temporarily tape the connection on one of the thermostats leads to the other to see if it starts to warm up. I would suggest you use electrical tape and perform this operation with the unit unplugged then plug the unit back in order to test it. Do not run the dryer for more than a few minutes, or you may have to call the fire department. If it warms up after a few minutes the thermostat is defective and needs to be replaced.
