Your best bet since this will be hard to do without looking at it is to call a local repairman. There are too many things left to chance.

Kenmore 80's series electric dryer no heat...drum

Check your breaker by turning it off and back on. Then check wiring at plug and back of dryer. You could have a bad relay switch. You can find it under the top and put the 2wires together and try it then . If it works, you know that it is the relay switch. Last but not least, it may be your element. Check it visually to see if there is a break in it or a weak spot.

Can you put a cycling thermostat for a drier on backwards. I took one out and not sure which way it went back on.

As long as the wires are connected to the correct terminals, it should work as it is supposed to.
