To test the heating element you need to access it by taking apart the back panel, and test it for continuity using a multimeter.
There are also a couple of fuses/circuit breakers that you should test.
Entering the model number here you get the exploded view, and replacement parts.

I would start with house fuses or breakers, if breakers then turn breakers off then back on several times then try the dryer again. Then I would check the cord where it connects to the dryer. After that I would start checking elements, thermal overloads/cutoffs, etc. most dryers have several normally closed t'stat/ overloads and a thermal fuse. If the thermal fuse or cutoff is blown you also need to check your venting. these safety fuses are not resettable and are usually an indication that the vent may be clogged and/or obstructed.

Not all that familiar with the Hoover Dryer line but in general if you have 12 volts being fed to the heater element.. you identified why it isn't heating .. Your husband is correct in that heater power should be line voltage.. You may have a non-resettable thermal fuse that has opened or a relay that feeds power to the heater is not being commanded to turn on by the logic on the control board. If your husband is handy and technically competent, he should verify that there is 220VAC at the input termnal block of the dryer itself ( carefully) to make sure you don't have one phase missing.. Those are the chief suspects... not sure that helped you but you now have a few ideas where to look...
