Re: ESTATE DRYER BY WHIRLPOOL
You might have a high limit or thermal fuse that has failed due to overheating. these will go bad when there is a lack of air flow, probably from a pinched off or plugged vent. it could be a bad element but not as likely as the thermostats. if you can get the element housing out and check all of them with a VOM meter, it will show you which one has an "open" circuit.

the model number you have is for a gas dryer if this is an electric dryer then you can access the heating element by removing the back cover this has a small element you can remove it by taking the 1/4 inch screws from the sides of the element there could be two screws or just one remove the screws and pull the element out you con then visually inspect it but the best way is to ohm it out with a meter but your problem sounds more like a timer
If this is a Whirpool model dryer (this includes Kenmore, Estate and Roper), the heating element will be located on the lower right hand side with the back panel removed. If the dryer does not have removable back panel, the heating element will be located inside the dryer under the drum on the right hand side.
Since you posted no brand name or model number, I'm going by the heading you posted this under. If your dryer model is different, please post back with your correct information so that I may assist you better.
If you have questions, please let me know. I hope this answers your question.
