Question about Dryers
May be a wireless remote installed in the wall with 110 power feeding but no wires to the fan. the switch has 4 switches - fan, light, rev, and prog. Below that is and off on sliding switch. Back of the switch has two power leads plus three other wires coming out that are wire nutted together. Any help where to find one of these? Can't locate it on line.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

You need two switches. It sounds like the Electrician set up the junction box for two circuits(Lights and Fans). i say this because your supply has 4 wires, Red , Black, White and Bare. We may be able to oversome this with one Lutron Switch. Allow me to investigate, and I will be back.

rechecked wiring, but blue with blue, white with white, etc., now lights work with remote,but fan only works with wall switch - so why doesn't fan work with remote,if lights work the remote & receiver must be ok?

Yeah... I know what's happening. Pull all the tape and reconnect all those wires, OK? The problem lies in the thermal overload. It's located on the heater can and below the element terminals. See it down there? It has 2 white wires going to it. When this thing blows, it shuts the whole machine down.
Here's the thing, OK? This is a high limit thermal overload and when this thing trips off, it means that there's another problem... specifically an air flow/ventilation problem. So you can jump out the overload to verify my diagnosis, but don't leave it like that. Google: Dryer fires and check out the video about half way down.
So... yeah, you could jump it and make your dryer work... but you have another issue to deal with after that. Your vent is clogged. Call a chimney sweep or a duct cleaning service to get all that stuff outta there.
Seriously... when your ventilation is obstructed there is a very serious fire hazard present. Please clean your duct work.

Dryers come with a wire or metal strap connecting the center "neutral" terminal to the frame of the dryer. When using a four wire power cord, take that wire or strap off the frame. (it can be discarded or better yet, in case this dryer needs to ever be converted back to a three wire cord) connect the frame end of the wire / strap to the center terminal of the power block. Now, Green (ground) wire goes to the dryer frame, White (neutral) goes to the center terminal, and the Red and Black (both "hot") wires go to either outside terminal. (one to each)
