If you live in North or South America - check the break first - make sure that half of it is not tripped causing only 110 volts (which will run the machine and motor) and not 220 volt (which the element needs to heat. Then check this video to troubleshoot element.
Hello, well that sounds a fuse problem, you can try check inside, be shore you unplug the power socket before you do it, if the inside fuse is ok ,so the control board is damage and needs to be replaced, and don't think it worth .
if the dryer comes on but does not dry, you have a voltage problem at the plug or the pig tail is hooked up wrong on the back of the dryer, get a volt meter and check the voltage coming in, you should have 240v....if for shore the dryer hasn't been hooked up or ever used. it could also be a bad heating element. but considering its a new dryer, i'd check the voltage at the plug and check the plug hook up
Hi Most ahve the same problem, maybe the dryer vent is plugged up , pull unit out and unplug it , remove vent and clean , then with a tester check over heat sensors at rear of dryer , they knid of look like diodes with two wires going to them , you could also by pass them with a jumper wire , BUT JUST TO TEST THEM ONLY ! it could also be th eelement , but most times it is a sensor form over heating unit , both are very cheep to fix,

If you are having problems with your gas dryer not heating
the most common problem is that the ignitor goes bad. Even though it glows
sometimes it is still not working properly.
Most times that's an indicator that the gas solenoids are not working or th heat sensor . But I believe you need to change the 2 gas solenoids. If you need my help finding the parts for you let me know, Thanks, Sea Breeze
Hello feeona sounds like the heating element is bad if its new it should be under warranty but if its old you need to go check on one at a store near you that deals with that equipment sometimesit cost more to fix old appliances than to buy new one sometimes not though
Check the power input. perhaps one of the hot legs is not working. When I say this I mean that the dryer is plugged into a 240V receptacle (if you live in North America). This means that each of the hot slots are 120V. The heating element uses both of these for a total of 240V, but the controls use only one for 120V. The element may seem to be working, but it could be only half-voltage.
First, check your circuit breakers. If you are in North America, there are two linked breakers with a 30-50 amp rating. Turn them both off and then back on to reset them. I doubt there are fuses in the dryer. Next, is the motor running and the timer advancing? If not, there are issues there. If still no function, I'm going to guess at the timer as the culprit since it is working intermittently. Oh, and check to see if any wiring to the appliance is burned or damaged, including junction boxes.
