sounds like you started checking the right areas first... make sure you actually have correct voltage coming to rear of dryer should be between 220-245 volts at power supply across the 2 outside power wires... check both at same time to make sure electrical circuit is correct.. some people only check 1 leg at a time to ground and thats great but you actually need to check both hot leads and see if your getting the above voltage i stated... if so then is anything working the light on inside or does it tumble at all just no heat... if nothing at all works i would test the thermal cutoff switch located near the heating element but normally closer to the blower assembly... it will usually be a white round /flat disk with 2 wires coming out of it. remove 2 wires and test contuinity should beep at you or give closed circuit. if not replace and then check for obstructions in the heating vent or blower assembly also make sure the termination exhaust point is clear no birds nest etc... if that is not the problem and the unit works just no heat check the heating thermostat located close to the heating element remove the wires and test the same ways as i mentioned above it should beep or give closed circuit indication... if that good move to heating element and check it same way... hopefully one of these are your culprit...if all that looks good possible the timer is bad.... repost with anymore questions and a little more info.... wish you luck
