SOURCE: Dryer not heating
If one of them is tripped/blown, the drum may turn, but the heater will not operate. Reset the circuit breaker or replace the house fuse.
Have a qualified electrician verify that the supply voltage is correct.
Open the gas supply valve. See Installation Instructions for details.
Refill or replace the LP tank. Call your natural gas utility company.
The dryer needs space around it for proper ventilation. Do not stack or place laundry or throw rugs against the front or back of the dryer. See Installation Instructions for details about installing a dryer in a closet or alcove.
If the Air Fluff cycle or temperature is selected, the dryer will tumble without heat. Each cycle ends with a Cool Down period during which the load tumbles without heat. Check the location of the indicator on the Cycle Selector knob.

Unplug your dryer (seriously, don't forget to do this.)
Using a thin screwdriver or putty knife and a cloth (to protect the painted surface) insert the screwdriver between the lid on the front left, then right and pry the lid up. There are no screws to remove to get the lid up, just two spring clips. Lift the lid and allow it to lean back. It will stay there nicely, but be careful that the lid does not get pushed back down with your fingers in there.
On the right hand side, there are two (white) connectors that you need to pull apart. With good light, you will see where to press to open them. You can not re-connect them wrong.
Look down inside the front of the lid-less dryer on the left then right side, you will see one Philips screw on each side that needs to be removed.
With the screws removed, pull forward on the front panel untill some clips release and the panel leans forward.
The bottom of the front panel sit on clips that do not need to be removed. You simply list the whole front panel straight up and you can then turn it around to get at the switches.
Hey, while you have the front off, vacuum the inside and pull all the lint out of the area beneath the lint screen which is all located on the front panel.
Inspect the belt, looking for wear. You can turn the drum easily with your hands. Also, the drum light is probably burned out. They ship with a lame night light that burns out really fast. I went to Home Depot and found an LED replacement (with the proper size base) which I am confident will last a long time.
Hope this helps.

Disconnect the power cord from the electrical outlet before servicing the Westinghouse dryer.
Insert the putty knife into the gap above the front panel and below the top panel. Lift the putty knife handle up to unfasten the internal locking clips.
Lift the top panel from the dryer cabinet. Rest the panel on the wall behind the dryer.
Remove the two screws on the top border of the front panel. Lift the front panel straight up to unhook it from the dryer cabinet. Unplug the connector leading into the front panel. Set the front panel aside.
Move the idler pulley arm toward the front of the dryer cabinet to loosen the belt. Remove the belt from the drum and pulleys.
Lift the drum out of the dryer cabinet.
Disconnect the electrical plugs leading into the heating element. Unfasten the screws securing the element to the inside of the cabinet. Lift the element out of the cabinet.
Place the new heating element inside the dryer. Connect the screws holding the element to the cabinet. Plug the electrical connectors into the element.
Reposition the front panel. Plug the door switch connector into its socket on the front panel. Press the panel straight down into the base. Reinstall the screws along the top of the panel.
Lower the top panel onto the dryer. Press down on the panel to lock it into place
