Check the following to address this issue.
1. No power to the dryer
Make sure there's power getting to the dryer. Check for tripped circuit breakers or blown fuses. An electric dryer uses two circuit breakers or fuses, and if only one of two is tripped or blown, the dryer might still run but not heat. Sometimes the power cord disconnects or burns at the dryer, if this is the case, the wiring and the terminal block must be repaired or replaced.
2. Heating element
A burned out heating element will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Replace the element if found defective.
3. Thermal fuse
Most dryers have a thermal fuse, which burns out when the dryer overheats, in which case the dryer will either not run at all or stop heating. The fuse is usually located on the vent duct, inside the dryer. A blown fuse will show no continuity when measured with a meter. Before replacing the fuse, make sure the blower wheel is not broken or clogged, and there is nothing blocking the venting.

soundes to me like the thermal relay has opened. You have to remove the back and check all fuses....some are round some are oblong. remove both wires and test for continuity.

also check the 2 thermostats just before the heat duct goes into the back at the top. 1 is in the vent and the other is slightly out. you can bypass either one by moving the red wire clip to the other. if it starts working again it is likely the one you bypassed. it could also be a clogged output vent between th drum and the exhaust hose.
