Does the drum turn? I know you have checked the breaker which can trip sometimes. There may be a small disc about the size of 7-8 stacked nickels that is actually a reset that is planted along in one of the lines. You can bypass it to see if it is the problem. If it is, then you can get a replacement at an appliance store. Make sure all your wiring is correct because you could be spending a lot of money for nothing. Was your old element actually bad(burned in 2)? This main thing I would want to know is if the drum turns or not. The other, probably not, problem could be in the control panel. If you are handy with an ohm meter, you can see if those parts are indeed O.K. You can call em at 803 463 5567 for clarification.

The element is at the bottom of the unit. Usually they are located on the right bottom but when you take the housing off, you will be able to see it.

If you are comfortable useing a volt meter and a ohm meter I can walk you throught the steps otherwise you need to call a repairman, If you are not getting any heat and the tumbler is turning it is possible the element is bad again only a test meter can tell for sure or you can take the dryer apart and look at the element to see if it is broken make sure the power is turned off at the breaker first also unplug the dryer.

First disconnect the power to the dryer by unplugging it from the wall. Then remove the 3 screws on the lower panel of the dryer. This should expose the heating element in a metal housing on the right side of the dryer. Disconnect the 2 wires going to the heating element and slide it out of the housing. The heating element part number is 3387747.
