Electric dryer? If it doesn't heat at all it is most likely shot. You have one heating coil in the rear of the dryer. You will need to take it apart to get to it. You will notice if the coil is broken once you visually inspect it.

Electric heating elment.


I have a ref. thermometer, round metal type I got a Wal-Mart that I check the dryer temp at the discharge. I bent the metal bottom so I can lodge it in the discharge pipe, turn the dryer on and watch the temp. Normally on high heat it will go up to 140-150 and cool down to 120-125 then cycle back on.

Most heating elements will come on and go off to the setting of the thermostat.  These ratings depend on the make and model of the unit itself.  If it seems to be short-cycling (going on and off very fast) then you probably have a faulty thermostat, or even a bad timer.  Dont know what type of unit it is.  You also may want to check the element itself.  Sometimes they can break and touch each other even momentarily.  Let me know if you need further information, and let me know what kind of unit it is.  Good Luck!!!    Jim
