There must be one or two circuit breakers, usually at the back of the dryer, check them out.
If this does not fix the problem, then possible faults are the thermistor or the heating element.
Most likely you will need to have the heating element replaced.
If you decide to call a technician you can use the phone number listed on the owner manual.
You can find parts and diagrams here.

Before starting troubleshooting-Unplug the dryer, because you will be removing front panel for this check.
There are several things that can cause your problem:
#1 of which is a clogged up lint trap and/or vent duct raising the heat that could cause your thermal fuse to open (blow). What to do: Make sure that duct and vent outside of wall are clear, if they were obstructed, then the thermal fuse can be checked for continuity with an ohm meter, it is located in the fan housing with 2 terminals coming off of it, if it does not have continuity (connection) between terminals, you will need to replace it, simple and less than $15 bucks.
NOTE: this problem can also be caused by a bad thermostat letting dryer get to hot which in turn blows the thermal fuse., sooo after changing thermal fuse you need to check that the temperature of air leaving dryer duct does not exceed 150 degrees, if it does replace the thermostat for less than $25 bucks, this maybe be what caused your problem in the first place. Good Luck!
