The following link explains how to troubleshoot a dryer no heat problem:

If the dryer is blowing cold air, and you stated that a replacement dryer works fine plugged into the same receptacle, you may have a problem with your power cord, or the internal heating circuits.

First, locate the terminal block at the back of the unit (this is where the power cord is installed) and plug the dryer back in. Verify that you have 220-240VAC across the two hot leads (RED and BLACK wires). If the voltage is not correct, you may just have a bad power cord. If the voltage reading is normal, you have an internal heating circuit problem.

Read through the link provided and let me know if you have any questions. If you require additional assistance, please let me know before you rate the solution. I hope this helps you.
